Wood fired cooking - Manna from Devon at Lainston

Join David Jones from the renowned Manna from Devon Cookery School for a hands on introduction to the versatility of wood fired ovens. 

Start the day by arriving for refreshments in the kitchen garden (subject to weather of course!) with an introduction to wood fired oven cooking. Then it is time to really immerse yourself, where you will get involved in preparing and cooking everything from pizza to fish, as well as learning the art of roasting, grilling and baking! Who knew wood fired oven cooking could be so versatile and more importantly so flavoursome?! 

Refreshments will be included throughout the day. You will get the chance to savour your creations during the morning and afternoon and as well as some "show and tell" with your baked breads and cakes. All classes include detailed notes and recipes as well as links to learning, videos and links to suppliers and a keep sake Season cookery school apron.

Campfire cooking - parent and child

Join us at our "Kitchen Camp Fire" to learn the perfect meatball dish. Parents, you will take the back seat (hurrah we hear you say!) whilst the little chefs learn how to make the full dish from scratch, around the campfire. Fun will be the main dish of the day and the "big" chef will guarantee an interactive learning experience too! Your little'ons will easily transfer their new found skills back to the kitchen at home, so you can get a night off every so often.

Italian "beefy" meatballs, rich garden tomato and basil sauce, fresh Orecchiette pasta and grilled flat bread is the menu of the day.

Class includes refreshments throughout the afternoon. Family dinner served in the kitchen garden with your newly found cooking buddies topped off with a Lainston Garden Mocktail for the thirsty workers and something a little stronger for the chief tasters (that's you parents!).
