We are currently updating our website, but here are some examples from our courses:

Fabulous Fish

We bought fish from the lovely fish stall which comes to Fernhurst every Monday afternoon and made marinated Asian salmon, cod with Parma ham and olives and a delicious fish pie. 


Thai Inspired Cooking

Which included Green Thai butternut squash curry with lime, coconut and coriander, Thai fish cakes and a Red Thai lentil curry.


Afternoon Tea

As afternoon tea has regained its popularity we thought we would  make a lemon drizzle cake, scones, either cheese or plain, a pot of lemon curd and a chocolate cake with a dark chocolate filling. 

Family Meal Inspiration 

Ever stuck for ideas for dinner, or even just need a little more confidence in the kitchen?

We made pastry – a useful skill to perfect and one to which many fillings can be added, sweet or savoury.  Ours was made into a leek, cheese and onion pasty.  We demonstrated and all ate for lunch, chicken wrapped in parma ham with cream cheese,  cooked in white wine and served with a sweet potato, ginger and coconut bake. And for pudding we made a deliciously light sticky toffee pudding which was taken home to enjoy.


Children’s Class –  suitable for ages 7 and upwards 

We made flaky pastry which was made into a leek and potato pie.

In addition we  made a chocolate cake  and some biscuits which the children enjoyed decorating

These dishes practiced  many useful skills including the use of an electric mixer, chopping, rolling out etc.  We know how much children enjoy learning and using these skills from the  after school cookery clubs that we run.

Bespoke Classes

You supply the people/children and we will do the rest, whether this be for a children’s party, a family group or some friends.  We will provide sample menus to choose from and provide the venue (unless you would prefer to do it at your home.)  Please contact us via our website and we will give full details and prices.
