Now You're Cooking

Midweek from £205 per person

If you are unsure about cooking the basics or just never had the chance then our Now You're Cooking class is there to help you become a more confident cook. During this class we will demonstrate every part of every dish before you do the same, giving you the knowledge and the skills to create delicious dishes.

We will cover the fundamental building blocks of cookery with you dealing with the preparation and cooking of meat and vegetables as well as helping you to cook perfectly al dente dried pasta, fluffy rice and potatoes. We will help you with the seasoning of each dish so that it is neither bland nor too salty and how to balance spices to make a curry from scratch. To finish off you will bake the perfect lemon drizzle cake learning baking fundamentals to help bake any cake.

Chef Tutor – Rob Cottam

  • Sri Lankan chicken curry with pilau rice

Arrive – 9.30am for refreshments, meet and greet with Rob and a run through of the day.

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!
