Manor Farm Cookery School
Manor Farm Cookery School is set in the rural heart of the beautiful Vale of Belvoir.
Many of the courses are tailored towards kitchen novices: men who usually run a mile when presented with a recipe, for example, or university students who struggle to boil an egg.
But amateurs are not the sole focus by any means. More experienced cooks will be drawn to Manor Farm’s specialist teachers who can offer advanced training in various food styles. There are also day courses for dinner-party cooking, plus fun ‘Cookery Clubs’ where a minimum of six attendees get together over five Mondays. These Cookery Club sessions comprise a brief demo followed by some hands-on prep and cooking. Recipes and ingredients are provided and you get to eat what you’ve cooked for lunch or supper.
Other courses include corporate ‘get away from the office’ sessions, and classes for kids.
Manor Farm Cookery School was founded by Diana Thompson, who trained at the Tante Marie Cookery School, the UK’s longest-established cookery school.
