Cooking with a conscience 
The perfect cookery event to help feed your body and spirit offers an opportunity for teams to enjoy an inspiring class in Chewton Glen’s Kitchen Cookery School where they will create delicious dishes in double portions, donating half to those in need. During the cookery workshop participants will learn new skills under the guidance of the Chef Tutor and prepare a nutritious and tasty meal, half of which will then be vacuum-sealed and distributed to a local homeless charity in Bournemouth. It's a fun, hands-on day for you and your team to bond with a truly purposeful outcome.

Conversation and a cuppa tea party
At Chewton Glen we offer a special event which combines the fun of baking with the enjoyment and fulfilment of helping to make a real difference to the lives of older people who have become isolated from family and friends. Working in conjunction with Contact the elderly, the only national charity solely dedicated to tackling loneliness and social isolation amongst older people through face-to-face contact, your group will be challenged to create a tea party for a small group of local people aged 75 and over who live alone. The day starts when the group meet their Chef Tutor at the Kitchen Cookery School. Participants will learn how to mix, bake, and slice & dice their way to create a fabulous treat in the great tradition of the hotel’s famed Captain Marryat afternoon tea. Later that afternoon participants will host their older guests in a stylish private dining room with whom they will share the fruits of their labours and make a toast to friendship and fun with a celebratory glass of fizz.
