What better than the chance to cook real food in the kitchen of a real castle? This is the stuff of fairytales: For children all that's fun about food, for adults, a few hours off while your little cooks are cooking.
Laid back, fun & inspiring
We run the classes ourselves and it's all very hands-on with an emphasis on real food, good ingredients and exciting flavours.
The day starts at around noon, cooking lunch which everyone sits down to eat and then finishes at around 4pm by which time everyone will have made something delicious to take away and share (or not). Usually there's a chance to feed the hens, collect their eggs, feed the goats and pick something from the kitchen garden.
Classes are for 7 -14 year olds and are scheduled throughout the year, mostly during the main UK school holidays but we can discuss bespoke courses too - perfect for birthday parties.
We have also started a class for families too, giving parents and children the chance to cook and eat together in a fun and unhurried environment.
Together you plan, prepare and cook a three course meal which everyone sits down and enjoys together. Family courses are for one or two families at a time and are arranged individually.
