Bakewell Cookery School - Work starts

Despite a bit of a 'cock up' by the company contracted to deliver the kitchen and appliances for our new Cookery School .....we finally have the fridge freezers, ovens, induction hobs and tens of carcasses on site this week.

Steve and Gareth have started the job of putting the units together in Bakewell and it's all looking good for the Cookery School to be ready by the middle of October.

The great thing is that everybody who comes to the building loves the space; the open beams, the views over Bakewell's livestock market and in the opposite direction into Bakewell itself with the Church sitting prettily on the hill.

Here's a view of our cookery school premises BEFORE work started. It will be interesting to see how different it looks after we have finished.

So what about doing a course in Bakewell before Christmas? Perhaps an 'alternative' works do?

We will be putting a small number of events and courses on before the end of the year. Some of the ideas we have are: an introduction to bread making with a local artisan baker, a sausage making course, how to make sushi, beer tasting and a 'posh pie and pea supper' or maybe the ultimate afternoon tea!

If you would like us to tailor make an event for you; whatever your ideas are just email us at:

NEW WEBSITE COMING ....real soon!
