You’ll be surprised at just how much you can cook on a BBQ and we’ve got local pit master Ed Warren to show you the best way to build, manage and cook on flames.

Barbecuing opens you up to a world of experiences and gets you back to our most fundamental state – cooking and being together.

An incredible treat for all Steak Lovers – working with our Chef, dad will have the opportunity to learn all about the different cuts of meat and most importantly how to cook steak at home. the day is spent cooking and eating the best cuts of meat sourced from local butchers Axons of Didsbury and Three Little Pigs.
Many of us love fish, rarely cook it at home or stick to the same recipes. We’ve created a series of three different fish cookery classes to help you introduce fish into your everyday cooking as well as for entertaining. Get Dad to embrace his local fishmonger, learning what to look for and what to ask for.
From Europe to Thailand, Japan to Sri Lanka – we’ve got a class to suit you, taken from chef’s travels. we have been lucky enough to meet Chochaba Harper a Thai chef who grew up in Thailand and has been in the UK for many years teaching cookery classes. Jason Palin our resident chef has taught all over the world teaching cookery classes – he loves nothing more than sharing his tasty delights with guests, his philisophy is come as guest, leave as a friend.
If healthy eating is more you Dad’s thing, take a look at this series of classes with healthy in mind. Kitchen Maverick Jan Cron has spent a lifetime learning the best cooking techniques and perfecting flavours, “if 70% of being healthy is what you eat and 30% exercise then we need to concentrate on getting the best balance of tasty food into our bodies”. He’s researched relevant, irrelevant and utterly absurd diets, so your Dad doesn’t have to.
