Cooking Weekends – for Foodies

If like many your holiday plans are somewhat different this year – join us for a weekend of cooking and dining.  We have pulled together 2 weekends where there is a blend of skills classes and international cuisines to keep you as busy or relaxed as you like.  Pick the classes you fancy , let us know if you need accommodation and we will book it for you.

We are adjacent to the Waterside Hotel which has a gym, pool and hydrotherapy area (amenities subject to opening)

Early August – Fish, Japanese, BBQ and Healthy Asian  – we can arrange a skill class Monday daytime if demand exists

End August – Pasta, Middle Eastern, Introduction to Bread, Thai and Perfect Picnics

Choose to attend as many or as few classes as you’d like, we have classes during the day and each evening.

The weekend will follow all current guidelines, taking into consideration all social distancing rules – our cleaning schedule has been increased and of course washing hands, as ever, is key to cooking! 

Contact or call 0161 706 0505 to discuss your requirements.
