It's simple: we meet at 10am, prepare four dishes together – a first course, a meat main course and a fish or vegetable main course, and a pudding. Then we sit down and eat what we have cooked with a glass or two of wine; try one or two local cheeses, have coffee, chat some more and say a fond good-bye at approximately 3pm. (more...)
Being a good cook is not just about skill but gaining a background knowledge that helps you choose the right menus and shop for the best ingredients. So our courses are held around a table and not at cooking stations. Rose demonstrates some of the cooking, but you will also participate in practical skills, learning new techniques, honing others.

Where we are
The Rectory is located on a hill above St Andrew’s Church in Winterborne Houghton, a peaceful village in the Winterborne valley, surrounded by hills and woodland with plentiful walking and riding. From Bulbarrow Hill, north of the village, the views are incredible – on a clear day you can see five counties and the Isle of Wight Needles, 28 miles away. (more...)
