We believe that, wherever possible, there should be a return to using the seasonal produce that is available. For that reason, our courses are split into those periods – partly in an attempt to re-establish the pleasure of anticipating certain foodstuffs as they come into season.
However, we also recognise that for the purposes of teaching, it is not always practicable or desirable to restrict our courses in that way. Therefore, we take full advantage of the availability of non-seasonal items to provide a balanced response to today’s culinary requirements.

To enable you to see which course is the one for you, we have tried to guide your decision by giving a rough idea of what level of skill is required to enable you to get the most from the course.

Level 1 - No previous experience
Level 2 - Enthusiastic home cook. Willing to learn new skills and techniques.
Level 3 - Competent cook (inc. fish dishes and skilled at producing family dinners). Introduction to more complex techniques including presentation of dishes.

Everything is provided and is included in the course fee.

As far as clothing is concerned, we suggest sensible footwear which covers the toes and with non-slip soles, comfortable casual clothes (we recommend trousers) and long hair should be tied back.
