Cookery School

Dedicated to the appreciation of good food and fine wine

The demonstration kitchen has been designed to the highest specification with the latest appliances from Gaggenau, equipment from Kenwood and Thermomix and knives by Wusthof.

The homely atmosphere of the school is complemented by an Aga and Fired Earth tiles. The school runs a busy programme of two-day, one- day and half-day hands-on, practical cookery classes throughout the year. Courses can be either residential or non-residental and are available for all ages and ability levels, including children’s cookery lessons.

The four- acre walled garden behind the hotel is planted with fruit, vegetables and herbs, providing a ready source of fresh ingredients for the cookery school kitchen and cut flowers during the summer months. The rolling hills of the Yorkshire Dales also provide some of the best artisan-made ingredients in the UK.
