This is an event where we bring together an extravaganza of wine and fine cuisine, combining the skills of our award winning restaurant kitchen and cookery school. The event includes wine tastings, talks from local food and drink producers and cookery demonstrations from our talented chefs. The two day weekend events includes accommodation and breakfast, a Signature Tasting Menu at dinner and a flight of wines to complement dinner.

On arrival you will enjoy a full afternoon tea, allowing time to unwind and relax after the journey in the cosy and welcoming Sitting Room or sumptuous Drawing Room. The evenings start with a wine tasting, with four wines to taste from a chosen theme, and then a pre-dinner glass of bubbly. Dinner is then served in Samuel’s restaurant, featuring Simon Crannage’s seven course Signature Tasting Menu, with a complementary wine flight.

The Saturday schedule of tastings and demonstrations in the cookery school allows enough time for a full afternoon tea. On the morning of departure, guests are able to join the Estate Ranger for a Landrover tour to see the fallow deer herd in the deer park. A Foodie Gift is also given to all departing guests to take home.

One night Gourmet Weekends include afternoon tea, a cookery demonstration, wine tasting, pre-dinner drinks and dinner on the Signature Tasting Menu.

The Kitchen Gossip

It’s lovely to see new season’s ingredients coming in, heralding the delights of the year to come. As well as Yorkshire rhubarb, the wild garlic is now in season and it wont be too long before new season’s lamb is available. Click Rhubarb to find my favourite spring recipe, which is very versatile and easy to make at home.

2014 has got off to a flying start with busy classes right across the schedule. Our Thursday Cookery Club Mornings and Supper Evenings have been very well received and our Barbecue Cook and Lunch courses get going over the Easter weekend.
