Seasonal Dinner Party

Midweek from £185 per person

Here at Chewton Glen we celebrate each season with dishes inspired by the time of year.

Our Seasonal Dinner Party classes change each season to show off ingredients at their very best and to give you inspiration whether it is Winter, Spring, Summer or Autumn. Not only do we focus on great tasting food but also on plating and presentation plus hints and tips to make entertaining friends and family enjoyable and as stress free as possible.

If you are looking for seasonal inspiration for family dinners at home and more casual entertaining our Seasonal Eating classes might be just what you are looking for.

With many of the classes you will be tucking into the food you have cooked and for some we will provide dishes from The Kitchen restaurant, all accompanied with a glass of wine. During the day we will show you around our kitchen garden and pop into our beautiful greenhouse, introducing you to our gardeners if they are tending to the beds at the time.

Finish – 3.30-4.00pm, take home your creations and The Kitchen apron leaving the washing up for our cookery school team!
