Our cooking days and  retreats will take place in our beautiful farmhouse situated in the Forest of Bowland AONB and very close to Gisburn Forest, Stocks reservoir and the Yorkshire dales.

Dominique has worked professionally as a chef and primarily as a pastry chef for over 25 years. Her background in cooking has taken her to some of the best kitchens in the UK. Some of these include, the Roux brothers, Terence Conran’s flag ship restaurant, Le Pont de la Tour, The Houses of Parliament and Aiden Byrne. She has competed nationally and was part of the team to win the Grand Prix award at the Salon Culiniaire at Hotel Olympia in 2010 as well as holding the trophy for the best Eccles cake, (not bad for a southerner!)

Andrew is a keen and qualified hunter and outdoorsman. He provides us with a steady amount of local furred and feathered game for our menu and cookery skills classes.

The cooking days will take place in the farmhouse kitchen and is limited to maximum of 4 people on any of the courses. Due to goverment guidelines and we will limit these courses to private bookings only. A minimum of 2 and a maximum of 4 people from 2 households or social bubbles. We will chat, cook and eat our way through the day. Some of the cooking will be demonstration based, but you will have plenty of opportunity to get involved on a practical level too. Full recipes and methods will be supplied to each person. Our cooking courses are available as either a course only price or as a 2 night retreat which includes full board accomodation and delicious evening meals.

Our 2 night retreats

The main focus of the stay will be on the cooking but we want you to relax and enjoy the some peace and quiet and the local area, so you can also choose to join us on an optional nature walk if you wish, or relax in your room with a fabulous view.
