Christmas Gift Guide – Cookery School

We all need a little inspiration when it’s time to buy Christmas presents, here are some ideas that'll keep on giving for life.

Food brings people together and giving a culinary experience will bring inspire your family and friends to get together more often. From novice to expert, healthy to gourmet we've got a class to suit everyone and you never know, you might benefit with a taste of what they learn. You can either book a specific class or buy a gift voucher so they can choose their own.

Classes can be adapted to suit most allergies and dietary requirements.

We’ve featured some of our classes to make the decision easier:

For the Coffee Connoisseur - Coffee Lovers Class

This class is all about making the perfect brew with a little bit of science from Gavin, a professional barista. He will explain the differences in techniques used to make the perfect coffee, advise on what will work best at home and even how to use all the kit that you might have tucked away in the back of the cupboard. This is a hands-on class with plenty of opportunity to practise and even try a little latte art.

For couples and friends - Cooking Together

This is the ideal gift for a couple, getting them to share a night out together to create a three course restaurant inspired meal. Our cooking together events are as much about chatting and relaxing as they are about learning and eating. Working with one of our chefs, your friends will learn how to create and more importantly enjoy eating the food they make. Cooking in pairs the menu can be adapted to suit individual's preferences or allergies.

Cheese Lovers - Cheese making with Cutting the Curd

With two dates to choose from, or attend both!. These day classes are a good mix of demonstration and hands-on - day 1 - halloumi & mozzarella then watch a demonstration of mascarpone and butter being made – both to be sampled with a tasty tea - and or - camembert and feta, leaving with approx 2 little camemberts and a block of feta to mature at home. The sessions focus on how you can repeat the process at home using raw farm or Supermarket milk, vegetarian rennet and basic kitchen equipment. Louise Talbot combines her passion for cheese and teaching others new skills, at her Cutting the Curd Cheese Making Classes.

Classes can be booked as a pair or individually, there is also a hotel onsite to enjoy the weekend.

For Those who like a bit of Spice - Thai Masterclass Series

We are lucky enough to have met Chorchaba Harper a fantastic Thai chef who grew up in Thailand and has been in the UK for many years teaching cookery.Chochaba will be hosting a series of Thai Masterclasses, we have three different classes so you can enjoy learning throughout the year.

"I was about seven years old when I started cooking.  I lived with my Aunt who was a cook in one of the many Royal Thai households dotted around Bangkok.  She did things the old fashioned way even in those days and I had to learn fast if I was to avoid a telling off or even worse".
