Hotels with cooking schools Hotels with cooking schools: from seafood masterclasses to barbecuing skills For many, food is not simply something to be enjoyed when dining in superb restaurants, but also something that's a joy to create. With hotels across the UK recognising cookery as both an art form and a valuable part of our wellbeing, many have chosen to share their foodie finesse by giving guests the opportunity to learn in their own cookery schools. Available in intimate as well as more formal style, hotels such as Chewton Glen and The Nare have turned cooking into a fusion of entertainment and education. Classes are offered in the form of themed and seasonal opportunities. Perhaps you are interested to learn the art of French Cuisine in a flavours of France experience or take your barbecuing skills to new heights in a grilling masterclass at Chewton Glen. You might be inspired to try a full day's cookery course followed by a well deserved four course dinner at Scotland's Blackaddie House. Or maybe the elegance of the Beech House & Olive Branch in Rutland will tempt you to try their Kitchen Masterclasses. They give you hands-on experience and tuition being a butcher, baker or fishmonger as well as sampling local wares in a five course tasting lunch, as well as peppering the day with plenty of pastries and coffees.
