Cooking Course / Weekend


I am looking for a good cooking course / cooking weekend for 2 people. I live in south east england but would not rule out courses all over the uk or in france if they are highly recommended.

I would like to have the course as part of a large group to keep the cost reasonable and to be sociable!



  • How about Rick Stein's Cooking school in Padstow? I've not been but have heard good things. Though it's limited to fish, obviously!!!

    Hugh's River Cottage in Dorset does a lot of courses as well covering a huge range of tastes.

    Sorry there both a bit 'celebrity'!!!

    Long way away from you but very good indeed.

    Runs throughout the year.

    There were about 12 people on the course I did and this seems to be about average speaking to a number of people who I discovered afterwards had previously been.

    There is the Ashburton School of Cookery near Newton Abbott in Devon - my brother did a weekend course there a couple of years ago and said it was really good.

    The Bertinet Kitchen in Bath is also really good for courses. I don't think they do weekends but they do day courses so you could have a weekend in Bath and a day's course in cooking. I have done a day course there and I can highly recommend it. Plus you could spend the other day at the Bath Spa which is also highly recommended!
