Course Format

Arriving from 9.45am onwards for registration, coffee and muffins.
At 10am we start each day with a short briefing and introduction to your course.
We like to focus on the benefits of preparing ahead and creating simple and delicious food. Following demonstrations, you will be given the time and assistance to replicate what you have been shown. We stop for lunch in the middle of the day to enjoy the fruits of your labour and a glass of wine.
All ingredients and equipment will be provided on the day and there’s an opportunity to take a few nibbles home with you. The day will finish around 4.00pm.
The all-inclusive cost for the day is £ 85.00

Evening Classes

We intend to hold various evening classes throughout 2012. Students going to university, vegetarians, those in a hurry and gluten free will be some of our ideas for these nights. Our aim is to show some simple but tasty meals, cooked on a budget but full of flavour. The evening will be full of demonstrations and tastings. The all-inclusive cost for the evening is £ 45.00

Group Demonstrations

Why not arrange a group cookery demonstration? You can select from any of our courses or choose something that is of interest to you.
