Join our kitchen team for half a day of professional hands-on experience and tuition, and take home some of the very best ingredients prepared by your own fair hands.

The day starts at 9am with a chat over a coffee and pastries, before being taken through to our preparation kitchen and introduced to your ingredients. You will wield the knife or spoon under expert tuition, working your way through all the different skills required by an expert chef. Forgotten skills such as how to prepare stock, dripping and sauces will also be explained.

After being a butcher, baker or fishmonger for the morning, you have the option of partaking of a five course tasting menu cooked by our kitchen team, showcasing some of items you’ll have created that morning, served with wine, beer or cider to match, if you wish. After lunch you are free to leave or check in and stay at Beech House. All the wonderful produce from your mornings work, will be vacuum-sealed and labeled ready for you to take home, along with recipe notes to impress.
