Cook with us

It is now over 11 years since we decided to leave the restaurant business, our passion for cooking has moved in the direction of cookery demonstrations which we run from our home at Acorn Bank.

Classes are small with spaces limited to 10 allowing everyone a close view of how the recipes are created. All dishes demonstrated will be served for lunch or supper depending on the time of the demonstration, complimented with a glass of wine.

Day time demonstrations start at 10.30am with morning coffee and homemade biscuits, giving everyone time to meet each other for an informal chat before the demonstration starting at 11am.
Evening demonstrations start at 6.30pm with a drink.

In addition to the courses in our programme we are happy to take private groups. The minimum number required for a group is 8 with the maximum being 10, and the courses available would be as per the current programme.

We have now been demonstrating for over 11 years, in this time we have used hundreds of recipes trying hard not to repeat them. It becomes more difficult to keep coming up with new and different ideas, and whilst we are not ready for retiring quite yet we have decided to reduce the number of cookery courses we will be doing in the future.
