Cookery Days

Visit our home in Colne near Cambridge for one of our cookery days, where the emphasis is on fun, learning and relaxation. Hosts Sandra & Frank will look after you and teach you a range of skills and techniques around the day's theme. Courses run from 9am until around 3.30pm. Your lunch will be the dishes you have cooked in the morning, and there will be an afternoon tasting and Q&A to complete the day. There is a maximum of 6 students on any one course. The cost for each day is £100, which includes recipes, ingredients, meals and drinks. Courses are suitable for beginners, as well as more experienced cooks.

Dates and times don't suit you? Next year we will be holding weekend courses - vouchers available for Christmas presents! Let me know what interests you.
