Choose from a variety of cookery courses, ranging from our full day cooking over fire sessions to our evening wild larder masterclasses, all taught by our experienced team.
All of our courses are centred around hands-on learning, with plenty of opportunity to enjoy the fruits of your labour with a delicious meal shared with your fellow classmates around our shared dining tables. And what better place to feast than in our woodland glen or cosy barn?
Our courses are designed to be informative yet relaxed. Whether you’re flying solo, attending as a pair or part of a bigger group – we always keep our class sizes small, to give everyone plenty of one-on-one time. Attendees will be provided with course notes and recipes to recreate all of the dishes we cover, in the comfort of your own garden or in a conventional kitchen (if the British rain gets the better of you).
All of our courses are also available for private hire for private or corporate events.
As the world starts to unfurl following lockdown, we’ve begun the gradual process of rekindling our fires here at The Salt Box. By closely following government advice, we’ll be introducing a staged approach that allows you to join us again beneath the trees in a safe and enjoyable manner.
We have lots of knowledge to share with you – whether that’s how to smoke fish in an old ammunition box in the embers of your fire, spit roast joints of meat until tender or sharpen those knives for seasonal butchery of the wild game larder.
From mastering the basic steps of fire lighting to learning how to manage your fires appropriately – with a little help from The Salt Box, you can master the art of cooking over fire. We also run a number of indoor courses, from pasta-making to pickling!
