The Kitchen Gossip
Life is buzzing in the cookery school. We are on a high after being selected as finalists for the British Cookery School Awards for the second year running and are in full swing with our Christmas Cookery courses.
Our 2014 cookery course programme and calendar are now on the website with a wide variety of courses to suit all levels of ability. See Adult Courses for more details. If you are travelling from further afield, don’t forget that we offer a special Cookery School accommodation rate for those attending courses. See our Special Offers & Packages page for details.
NEW! Short Cookery Courses
We are also launching new Thursday Cookery Club Mornings and Supper Evenings in 2014, to enable those with busy lifestyles to improve their culinary skills in ‘bite size’ sessions – you will learn the techniques to create a classic dish in just an hour, which you’ll then sit down to enjoy for lunch or dinner.
