We want everyone who comes on a Seasoned cookery course to be able to learn great new techniques and flavours. Choosing not to eat meat shouldn't be a barrier to that. This is why a broad selection of our courses can be made suitable for vegetarians. As long as you tell us at the time of booking, the following courses can be adapted to a meat free version for you. You'll get all the things that Seasoned cookery courses are famous for: great chefs, lots of new techniques, recipes you can recreate at home, all learnt in a friendly atmosphere. You will learn the same range of recipes and techniques in the day, just adapted to be meat free. You will potentially be cooking alongside people who are working with meat. It depends on the class bookings for that day, as these are not vegetarian courses.
Join ex River Cottage Head Chef Tim Maddams for an exciting day creating bread, cheese, pasta & learning the basics of hot smoking. Perfect for people who want to create their own handcrafted food at home, turning simple ingredients into delicious food.
Join Andy Tyrell for a day of Christmas Bread Making, learning the art of Stollen, Brioche and Grissini. Not only will you make these delicious breads, but you'll also learn how to create the perfect Danish pastries too.
Please give us a ring if you'd like to discuss further on 01283 711 681. When you're ready to book, please make sure to let us know you would like the vegetarian version. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee to have the right ingredients on the day unless you let us know in advance. Seasoned cookery courses take place in our purpose built kitchens on the Catton Hall Estate. It's worth pointing out that there is a working farm and a commercial game shoot on the estate. We do offer meat based cookery courses on other days in our kitchens. We hope this won't affect your enjoyment of the day. We understand that guests with strict vegan beliefs may have possible concerns. Please give us a ring before booking; we'd be happy to discuss.
