Seasonal Cooking Over Fire Course

Join us in our Woodland Kitchen to learn how to tame the flames and create delicious meals, in a relaxed and informative environment beneath the trees.

Course Details

Our Seasonal Cooking Over Fire course begins with a gentle meander up to our woodland glen. Along the way, we will gather a selection of wild ingredients, introducing you to the tasty morsels that nature’s larder has to offer.


After a restorative brew, we will learn how to make fire using natural tinders, transforming a tiny spark into a flame and giving you the opportunity to slow down into the rhythm of the woods.


Fires crackling and curiosity sparked, we will then introduce you to a medley of fire cookery methods; which may include grilling, skillet cookery, coal baking and how best to manage the heat from your fire throughout the day.


This course gives you a full day of immersive fire fuelled cooking. Perfect for both beginners or a keen cook looking to sharpen their fire cookery skills, before taking the next step on to our Advanced Cooking Over Fire day.

How We Teach

Our Cooking Over Fire course revolves around cookery demonstrations, before we send you off to recreate and enjoy the fruits of your labour! We will start by cooking up a hearty brunch, followed by a further three dishes throughout the day, ranging from light bites to hearty feasts!


Whether you’re flying solo or joining us with friends and family, the focus of all of our courses is showing you the incredible potential seasonal and local ingredients have in your outdoor kitchen, as well as how to incorporate new techniques into your everyday cooking.


To round off the day we will finish with our very own homemade seasonal marshmallows, toasted over our burning embers as a little pick me up before heading home, full of food and inspiration (and our Fire Cookery Guide and Recipe Pack).
