Seasonal menu: Autumn

Celebrate the autumn harvest with our seasonal cooking class. You’ll join us for a day of cooking with beautiful produce to create an impressive three-course menu, learning lots of skills and techniques along the way. With beetroot tarts, creamy wild mushrooms and caramelised apples on the menu, it’s a delicious way to embrace the season.


What to expect

We love cooking with ingredients when they’re at their best. Our Seasonal classes are a great way to explore produce that reflects the time of year, whether that’s fresh tender veg in spring or the orchard fruits of autumn. 

There’s a wonderful array of produce on offer in autumn with the end of the summer’s bounty and the start of the earthier winter veg coming through. It’s also a great time to get back in the kitchen for hearty meals as the weather starts to turn. 

During this class, you’ll join our chefs in making a starter, main and dessert which you can enjoy in class, then take your recipes home to cook again for friends and family, either on their own or as a whole autumn feast.
