Festive Fire Cookery
The magic of Christmas meets the flames on our festive inspired fire cookery course, with ingredients inspired by the seasons to create a delicious feast.
‘Tis the season for feasting – and in this hands-on cookery course, we will teach you a range of skills and techniques to transform seasonal ingredients and create incredible festive flavours.
We’re firm believers that hosting a Christmas feast doesn’t have to be so daunting, and that the season should really be all about focusing your time and energy on family, friends and enjoying yourself – not slaving away in the kitchen! Cooking your Christmas dinner in a conventional kitchen presents all sorts of challenges, a balancing act between cooking and trying to keep things warm, so cooking part (or all!) of your festive feast over the fire can help.
Throughout the day, you’ll learn how to get the best out of your winter veg, create delicious nibbles and sides, as well as stunning celebratory showstoppers. And it wouldn’t be Christmas without a steaming mug of mulled cider and some indulgent sweet treats!
Fires crackling and curiosity sparked, you will gain confidence in a medley of fire cookery methods; these may include skillet cooking, grilling, planking, coal baking or hot smoking. We’ll tackle the fire’s different heat zones and how to make the most of your fire – from the flickering flames to your end-of-the-day burning embers.
Our courses are designed to be informative yet relaxed. Whether you’re flying solo or joining us with friends and family, all of our workshops are centred around enjoying the fruits of your labour throughout the day – expect to head home with all the skills and recipes to replicate your festive creations confidently.
At the end of the day, we’ll send you home with our Fire Cookery Guide and Recipe Pack. You’ll also get the chance to stock up on Christmas Gifts, with 15% off our products on the day.
