Well the first real snow of Winter has fallen in the Peak District. Everywhere has a covering and in some places much more!
So if you don't need to travel today.....why not keep nice and warm indoors, make yourself a "cuppa tea", put your feet up, have a little surf and make plans for the months ahead.
It won't be long before Spring is upon us so how about doing something challenging and new for yourself in 2012? At Hartingtons School of Food in Bakewell we have a wide range of interesting courses and food related events which are both educational and fun. Come on your own, come with a friend, come with a group........ check out our courses page. I'm sure there will be something that takes your eye.
And for the romantics amongst you instead of a meal out this year on Valentine's Day why not spend a lazy Sunday on 12th February making Italian Bread with your loved one. What could be more romantic than that?
Perhaps your "other half" is a chocoholic.......if so don't buy them a box of chocolates this year let them make their own. Why not indulge them with our full day Artisan Chocolate Making course? They will learn the history of this seductive food, sample chocolates from around the world, be pampered with indulgent chocolate drinks, have a masterclass with an artisan chocolatier and at the end of the day will have created their own hand made chocolates to take home and enjoy! We can even give you a personalised gift letter to give them on Valentine's Day.
Now we all want to treat our Mum for Mothers Day don't we? And we have the ideal present for her too. The Ultimate Tea Experience is a great combination of a talk, tutored tea tasting and a gentle "foodie" walking tour of Bakewell followed by an indulgent afternoon tea with a glass of 'fizz'. Tickets are limited for this event and are selling fast so if you want to pamper Mum you'll need to book quickly. We can provide you with a personalised letter to give her on Mother's Day inviting her to the event on 23rd March.
Well we've sorted you, your loved one and now your Mum ........it's amazing what you can get done on a Sunday morning isn't it? Fancy another "cuppa"?
