Wild Italian Cookery
Immerse yourself in Italy’s culinary favourites with a twist, cooked over an open-fire and featuring seasonally and locally inspired British produce
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 Lombardy, Northern Italy, where she inherited a deep culinary appreciation for the country’s approach to quality, seasonal ingredients and the focus on shared dining.
