The Current Cookery School

The current Cookery School has a limited capacity of 8 pax and with a lack of similar facilities in the area, there is huge potential to expand upon the existing offer.

Will an increasing awareness and need for everyone to reduce their footprint through food, this will sit at the very essence of the future-thinking Artisan Cookery School. This means advocating and embracing initiatives like renewable energy, homegrown food production, local and sustainably sourced produce, plastic-free, zero waste, water efficiency, recycling and more.  Applegarth need the space & tools to achieve this.


The Artisan School Vision

Exceptionally well placed to deliver drawing upon the various elements onsite - the Applegarth Cookery School will be exceptional.

Applegarth are looking to combine two different elements, both  structured courses  and light hearted workshops to create a unique type of facility. We are looking to outsource much of the teaching to experts in their field and create a range of courses covering many fields.

Interested in making cheese or charcuterie or learning how to butcher a chicken properly, our food hall partners have that covered.  Looking to learn patisserie or how to create the perfect hollandaise, our restaurant head chef has that in the bag. After a multi day course learning how to cooking the finest Indian or exceptional Thai, our partner restaurants will help you there.

Or are you just after a glass of wine with friends while you make ravioli from scratch before sitting down in the restaurant and eating it (with another glass of wine of course).


Applegarth want to make learning fun, so that guests come away having made new friends and learnt something truly useful along the way.
