Cookery Courses

Over the years we have been able to incorporate various classes, demonstrations and workshops into the life of the shops.

Due to the current pandemic, no courses are presently available but we hope to schedule new bread making classes later in the year, watch this space or sign up for our email newsletter to keep informed.

Henckels, who run our popular Knife Skills Classes, have also put all courses on hold for the foreseeable future, but they will be back as soon as it is safe.

In the meantime Babette, our expert chef, is ready to impart her knowledge and experience in the form of, socially distanced, 1 to 1 lessons, from her fully equipped kitchen. Lessons are charged at £50 an hour plus ingredients, to find out more or make an booking call Babette on 07950 146489 or email
