BRAND NEW: Lucknam Park Cookery School Opens 19th November 2012
Lucknam Park Hotel & Spa is delighted to announce the opening of its brand new Cookery School on 19th November 2012. Headed up by Chef Hrishikesh Desai under the guidance of Lucknam Park’s Michelin starred Executive chef Hywel Jones, the Cookery School will offer a wide range of 24 daily courses for anyone who enjoys cooking and wants to master new techniques.
Why not get ahead this Christmas and take part in ‘Christmas Entertaining Made Easy’ with recipes for traditional glazed ham, mouth watering mince pies and how to create the perfect roast Turkey with all the trimmings. Or make it an extra special festive season and try your hand at ‘Foodie Christmas Gifts’. Learn how to prepare chutneys, cup cakes, ginger breads, Stollen and Panettone all of which can be presented in attractive jars and boxes as gifts.
Participants will be under the attentive eye of Hrishikesh Desai, 2009 Roux Scholar and National Chef of the Year in 2010. 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 the Cookery School’s own herb garden.
The Cookery School is located in a small house on the estate, just a short walk from the hotel. The kitchen has been designed by renowned kitchen designer Stephen Graver, with state of the art appliances supplied by ATAG and Fhiaba. Classes are for a maximum of 12 participants at 6 cooking stations and each person will receive a folder of menus including useful culinary techniques and a certificate.
