Throughout the day, you’ll learn how to create delicious Italian inspired meals in a relaxed and informative environment, surrounded by the crackle and pop of fires.

Our food-filled adventure starts with a walk up to our woodland glen, gathering a selection of wild ingredients on our way.  After a restorative freshly brewed coffee in our woodland kitchen, we will then turn our attention to the main business of the day; learning how to make a selection of Italian inspired dishes.

 

No Italian Cookery course would be complete without a celebration of Italy’s most beloved carbohydrates – so freshly made pasta is definitely on the agenda! We’ll also create a selection of dishes featuring seasonal and wild ingredients, cooked over an open fire.

 

And of course, you’ll finish the day with a hard-earned feast. And what better place to lunch than under our woodland canopy in the great outdoors?

 

Expect to head home smelling of wood smoke, with plenty of food and fire in your bellies. We’ll send you an email recipe pack so that you can get started at home straight away.

 

Our passion for Italian inspired cookery stems from co-founder Beckie’s childhood in Piedmont, Northern Italy, where she inherited a deep culinary appreciation for the country’s approach to quality, seasonal ingredients and the focus on shared dining. 

Sample dishes:

 

Wild Garlic Focaccia

Rabbit Arancini w/ N’Duja mayo

Nettle Pici Pasta w/ Crayfish

Borage Tortellini w/ Buttered Cobnuts

Slow Roasted Chilli, Fennel and Orange Pork Belly 

WIld Herb Gnocchi w/ Venison Ragu

Pheasant Saltimbocca w/ Fennel Squashed Potatoes

Our menus are best suited for flexible, adventurous eaters with a strong focus on seasonally and locally inspired ingredients, including wild and foraged foods sourced from nature’s larder.

Dietary Requirements

Due to the nature of our events and in order to uphold high-quality standards we cannot cater for all dietary requests at our dining events and cookery courses.

 

Our dining events are intimate affairs with small groups, centred around a set menu lovingly prepared in our remote woodland kitchen by our small kitchen team, therefore preparing a separate menu to cater for dietary needs is not always possible.

 

Dietary needs must always have been communicated and approved prior to booking your seat at our table, and must be advised to our team no later than 7 days prior to the event.

Please Note

Course content subject to change.
