Cookery Lessons at River Cottage
We tried out the cookery lessons at River Cottage and spent the whole day in delightful surroundings making new friends and learning a thing or two. This was more than a cookery class, this was a social event. We adored every minute of the nose to tail class and think all mums will adore it too regardless of cooking ability. There are so many classes to choose from and you get to take your creations home from each one. You also taste, sample and eat throughout the entire day making it an indulgent feast from morning til dusk. We attended in the winter but can imagine just how much more beautiful this idyllic place is in the summer.
You may even bump into Hugh Fernley-Whittingstall while you’ll be able to have a good look around River Cottage itself. We came home brimming with ideas not just for the kitchen but for the garden as well. We loved it and can’t rate it highly enough. You could follow up with….

From a producer with over 25 years experience, this gluten and dairy free spread can be used in pizza and pasta sauce or spread over ciabatta or crostini. Only the best meat from the shoulder and foreleg is used to make the paste, as well as a small amount of fat from under the belly.

This is cooked and concentrated after being selected from defined Lambrusco and Trebbiano grapevines vinegar, aged for at least 10 years, is added as well as a percentage of fresh wine vinegar.
Lupetta Semi Dried Tomatoes: The bright red Sicilian semi dried cherry tomatoes from Lupetta are full bodied and rich tasting thanks to the mineral rich Sicilian soil
“Enchanted Forest takes its inspiration from the woodlands that surrounded my Grandparent’s house on the Isle of Arran. The woodlands were wild, unpredictable and scary! I love the playful way children see the world, as if through a wonderful lens that turns the mundane magical. In Enchanted Forest, tree stumps become curious little dwellings, rivers flow into treasure laden caves and at the heart of every forest lies an enchanted castle!” – Johanna Basford
Johanna Basford is the award-winning British designer behind the internationally-bestselling title, Secret Garden: An Inky Treasure Hunt and Colouring Book. In this eagerly anticipated follow-up, Enchanted Forest: An Inky Quest & Colouring Book, Johanna takes readers on a new adventure, through a spell-binding labyrinth of over 60 illustrations, to find the secrets hidden the depths of the Enchanted Forest.
