Chewton Glen is one of my favorite country escapes in the UK. I went a couple of years ago with the Husband and we had the best time and have been speaking about booking another trip ASAP.
Well, I’ve just found out another reason to book in. The Kitchen at Chewton Glen is offering exciting new cooking courses and demonstrations that will inspire, inform, educate and most importantly provide a culinary experience that is packed full of fun and enjoyment. Working in association with celebrity chef and Chewton Glen alumnus James Martin, the cookery school will be headed-up by Chef Tutor, Rob Cottam. Classes will be hosted by Rob and visiting guest and celebrity chefs, including Tom Kerridge, Atul Kochhar, Richard Corrigan, Dan Doherty, and, of course, James Martin himself.
The cooking classes that are suitable for all skills and ability levels – whether for those just starting out on their adventures in the kitchen (or who never cook, like me!), or confident home cooks looking to improve their skills.
The purpose-built Kitchen space will set the stage for enjoying and learning about food and cooking. The design is open-plan; bi-folding doors and glass panelling will flood the cookery school and casual restaurant with light. Each of the 12 professionally equipped cooking stations will have views over the dedicated kitchen garden, which has been established by Chewton Glen’s Estate Manager, Darren Venables. Its raised beds and greenhouse will provide year-round supplies of herbs and vegetables.
You can book in for the classes yourself or give them as a gift, what a perfect present for someone that loves to cook! Classes will run Tuesday to Sunday from 09:30AM until 4.00PM, with prices starting from £185, including refreshments, lunch, all equipment and ingredients.Class themes will include: Found and Foraged; Morocco to the Middle East; Baking Greats; Nutritious and Delicious; Food for the Family; and a Junior Chef programme.
