That’s why in 2015 we launched SEASON, our very own cookery school situated in the grounds of Lainston House. SEASON came about because of our belief that guests at an Exclusive hotel or venue deserve to be immersed in an entire experience. Now, thanks to the new school, those with a passion for all things food don’t have to stop at simply dining in one of our restaurants (as exquisite as they may be). At the school, budding chefs and cooks or anyone who enjoys selecting ingredients and preparing a meal can learn the skills they need to impress in the kitchen. Our team of experts pass on some of the knowledge that has helped them acheive so many awards and accolades.

Speaking about the new cookery school, our group’s Managing Director, Danny Pecorelli, said:
“At Exclusive Hotels and Venues and across the industry, we are seeing a rise in the demand for experiences that educate, challenge and inspire – those breaks and events that have a value added  experience element that leaves guests feeling enriched. With this in mind, and with our unwavering determination to offer a diverse range of experiences for our guests combined with our great passion for food and dining and our incredible group of talented chefs, we developed the concept of an Exclusive cookery school.”

The class tutors at SEASON comprise our Exclusive chefs as well as world renowned chefs, local chefs, experts, and producers of the highest quality. The school is an extension of our existing Chefs’ Academy, which has trained many of our own staff, and is set within the grounds of the 17th century Lainston House. Students looking to learn from the SEASON experts can book a half-day, full day or residential class. Gift vouchers are also available.  Scheduled classes can be joined by those looking to master a particular skill or learn about a particular style of cooking, but the entire school can also be hired for larger groups or corporate events.

Enjoyed every minute...

I had a wonderful time last Friday at Season Cookery School. I enjoyed every minute of the day!
The kitchen is ultra-modern and fully equipped with every gadget/utensil you could possibly need. I was in heaven!
