Cook it! Eat it! 11.30am - 2.30pm

After this, you will cook your own main course, under the expert tuition of Lesley and the team. You will then sit down and enjoy the meal you have created, accompanied by a glass of wine.

8* - 12 people £125 per person

More than the Cook it! Eat it! sessions, with more hands on cooking (but less time to eat after!). This is a wonderful new course which combines both hands on cookery and demonstrations, where Lesley will teach guests how to make a classic dish like soufflés or choux pastry or skills like filleting fish or boning and stuffing a turkey. The workshop will end with a grand tasting of all the dishes cooked and demonstrated.

8*- 12 people - £125 per person

Lesley's Kitchen 12pm - 2.30pm or 6.30pm - 9pm
Come for a 3 course lunch or dinner here at the cookery school for a fabulous dining experience. Lesley will be serving seasonal local produce in a relaxed, homely style and will be available throughout the meal to chat through the menu. Includes a demonstration by Lesley, complimentary glass of fizz on arrival and coffee. Up to 24 people can be accommodated and will have exclusive use of the cookery school and a totally bespoke menu.

12* - 24 people - £125 per person
