Experience the all new Cookery School at Lucknam Park
The School offers a unique opportunity for anyone who enjoys cooking to perfect their skills and master new techniques through a variety of innovative courses led by Chef Hrishikesh Desai with the guidance of Lucknam Park’s Michelin starred Executive Chef Hywel Jones.
Hrishikesh Desai is heading up the cookery school. Desai, aged 32, has been at Lucknam Park for seven years and already has many accolades to his name, having won the prestigious Roux Scholarship in 2009 followed by the coveted National Chef of the Year Award in 2010.
The Cookery School is located in a small house on the estate, just a short walk from the hotel. The kitchen is designed by renowned kitchen designer Stephen Graver, and the state of the art appliances are supplied by ATAG and Fhiaba.
Desai is passionate about flavours, as his love of food stems from his childhood travelling around India and his mother’s home cooking. His courses will feature a strong emphasis on fresh ingredients and nutrition, and many of the dishes will include home grown seasonal produce from Lucknam Park’s kitchen garden and fresh herbs picked from the cookery school’s own herb garden.
