Experiencing the Ashburton Cookery School
Got to experience a professionally led cookery course at Ashburton Cookery School.
Winner of Best Tourism Experience 2017, Ashburton Cookery School is the place to go for anybody who wants to learn how to make the most of the rich produce the Devon is famed for. The team of full-time cookery tutors is made up of professional chefs and between them, they’re renowned for delivering an outstanding level of cookery training that aims to both teach and inspire you.
“…honing your basic ability into a skillset that promises to wow the most demanding of dinner parties!”
Courses range from half day, full day and weekend, to full five-day programmes, and they include an unbelievable array of options, including canapé making, knife skills, breadmaking, chocolate making, seafood and Italian cuisine, with longer courses covering a surprising amount of ground, honing your basic ability into a skillset that promises to wow the most demanding of dinner parties!
If you’re still unsure, why not head to the website and check out one of the team’s fantastic recipes? In fact, in honour of National Vegetarian Week, the school recently uploaded a recipe for butternut squash, pear, wild mushroom and sage risotto – a delightful dish that’s typical of those taught at the school.
Impressively, Ashburton Cookery School also has 14 rooms in Ashburton, exclusively available for cookery school students and their guests, so wherever you come from, you can enjoy luxurious accommodation on the doorstep of the town’s fantastic amenities, pubs and cafés.
