You will cook your recipes together and there is always more than enough food, and often food to take home too!
For lunch, you will be eating the food that you have cooked for lunch around the dining table, before heading home.\

Allergies and Intolerances
We are happy to make adjustments where possible. Some classes are however unsuitable for people with particular intolerances – where the menu would need to be completely different.

We must speak to you before your visit if you have a severe allergy, mild allergy, severe dietary intolerance, or are unable to eat any meat or animal products.
Please note one booking is for 1 adult and 1 child to attend.
