Historical Cookery Courses in Cumbria

A small seventeenth century farmhouse in Cumbria, frequently used as a television kitchen, is the location for a fascinating historical cookery school called Historic Food. 

Group sizes are limited to six participants per course, which means you get plenty of individual attention. You will cook your own lunches, but will get to experience a Saturday night dinner of period dishes cooked by Ivan.

Ivan has an international reputation for his research on British and European culinary history. As well as a scholar, broadcaster and writer, he is also a gifted professional cook and confectioner, noted in particular for his re-creations of meals and table settings. His work has been exhibited in many museums, including the Paul Getty Research Institute, Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Museum of London, Fairfax House, the Bowes Museum and the Rothschild Collection.  

All two day cookery courses cost £280 which includes:
  • all tuition
  • printed materials/recipes
  • lunches (cooked by you, of course)
  • Saturday evening Historic Food dinner

These fascinating cookery courses include Tudor and Early Stuart Cooking, Georgian Cooking, Victorian Cooking and Italian Renaissance Cooking.

Most of the courses before Christmas are already fully booked so if you are interested in a course in 2011 may I suggest you book it now
