Seasonal Eating

Midweek from £185 per person

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

If you are looking for seasonal inspiration for casual entertaining, family dinners at home or are simply stuck in a rut with mid-week meals our Seasonal Eating classes are for you. With impressive flavours and minimum fuss we guide you through how to make the most of seasonal recipes. You will learn what can be made in advance or freeze and also how to adapt each recipe to use other ingredients depending what is in season when you recreate them again at home.

For seasonal dinner parties and entertaining with a flair for presentation you might be interested in our Seasonal Dinner Party classes.

In the middle of the day we will break for lunch around the chef’s demonstration area. 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!
