Half Day Course Format
Our half-day courses are a great way to learn a particular culinary skill that you will use for life. During a morning or afternoon session you will enjoy around 3 hours of in-depth, hands-on learning with our experienced chef tutors focussing on one skill.
There is no lunch/dinner on these courses but you will leave with the dishes that you have prepared during the course.
You won't sit down for a meal with this course, but instead you will take away all the delicious items you have made.
All of our courses are highly practical and you will spend 90% of your time in the kitchen learning and cooking. We maximise your quality learning time by taking care of time-consuming tasks such as weighing and assembling ingredients and washing up.
This course is at an Intermediate Level. Aimed at the typical home cook. These courses will build your confidence in all areas of the kitchen. You should be familiar with common cookery concepts such as frying, baking, grilling and be able to follow a recipe. No other special skills are required.
The minimum age to take this course is 18 years old unless otherwise specified.
You will need to tell us about any food allergies or special diets at the time of
booking. Whilst the course content will stay the same, we will always try and
accommodate your requirements with substitutions and alternatives.
We are very familiar with common food allergies and regularly welcome coeliacs, vegetarians and those with gluten-free, dairy-free or religious diets on our courses. Please contact the Customer Service team who will be able to advise you further.
You need to wear sensible footwear with non-slip soles and covered toes. Long hair needs
to be tied back; we advise wearing comfortable clothes and not your best outfit. We also
recommend wearing trousers.
You don't need to bring anything else with you since everything else is provided. If you wish to bring some containers to take away food you may, but recyclable boxes are provided.
You will receive a Certificate from the Ashburton Cookery School upon completion of this course.
We source as many ingredients from ethical, local suppliers within a 25 mile radius of
the cookery school as possible.
All our fish, poultry, meat and dairy is sourced from local producers as well as
vegetables and English fruit.
We will always prioritise locally sourced, seasonal ingredients and recipes where possible.
