A nice Experience located handily in Axminster, Devon.
Head to Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s famous River Cottage HQ – as seen on TV and enjoy this magnificent cookery course, perfect for anyone with a passion for food. The culinary haven of one of the UK’s most beloved cooks, River Cottage HQ provides a country cooking experience like no other. Begin in true River Cottage style with a tractor ride to the farmhouse for tea, coffee, treats and a chat with the day’s cooking tutor. Spend the day learning a host of cookery skills and participate in five different cookery sessions including bread, pudding, meat, veg and fish, learning tricks of the trade as you go. Put newfound skills into practise by making a hearty three-course supper before sitting down as a group to tuck in at the end.
At least twice a month throughout the year (could be any day of the week).
The cookery course starts at 10am and finishes at 5pm. Arrive by 9.20am in time to take a tractor down to the farm.
Share the course with up to 19 other keen foodies, plus a professional River Cottage chef.
Minimum age is 12 (children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult aged 18 or over). There are disabled facilities but this working farm has some difficult to negotiate areas (please check when booking).
Regrettably, this experience isn’t suitable for those with allergies or specific food preferences. River Cottage is a licensed venue and offers a wide selection of organic wines for sale on the day.
