Farmhouse cookery school, Philleigh Way have a series of Christmas courses taking place this festive season to get you in the Christmas spirit.
First on the list is a new Christmas cake decorating course with regular guest tutor, Christine Hawker. Trained at the prestigious Denman College, Christine has a passion for baking and sugar-craft and plenty of ideas to inspire students to really go to town with their Christmas cake this year. During this fun, hands-on course students will master a variety of different decorating skills and techniques to produce their own beautifully decorated Christmas cake. The end result is guaranteed to impress family and friends. The course takes place on November 28, runs from 9.30am to 1.30pm and costs £80.00.
There will also be a full-day Christmas cookery course. Kicking off with some European family favourites, resident chef George will teach students how to bake Christmas classics such as German Stollen and Italian Panettone. He’ll also demonstrate a selection of easy party canapés to impress guests, share ideas to jazz up the traditional roast and share tips and tricks on how to make the most of Christmas leftovers. Not only that, there will be a mixologist on hand to teach students a couple of festive cocktails designed to get the Christmas party started! The Christmas cookery course takes place on Saturday December, 5 from 10.00am-16.00pm and costs £150.00pp, which includes a delicious Philleigh Way lunch and drinks.
Resident chef and fifth generation at Philleigh Way’s Court Farm, George Pascoe, said: “It’s easy to start feeling the pressure in the kitchen at this time of year, when really we should all be focused on celebrating food, family and friends. We hope that our series of Christmas courses will not only help to keep Christmas cooks more relaxed this year, but also encourage people to have some fun and perhaps try some new recipes and techniques. Above all, we’ll get you inspired for a fabulously festive Christmas!”
Philleigh Way runs a wide range of day cookery and lifestyle courses throughout the year, starting from £60.00. The focus is always on sharing knowledge and skills handed down through the generations and inspiring people to cook creatively with local, seasonal ingredients. Philleigh Way are offering 20% off all courses and gift vouchers purchased before Christmas so why not treat that special person.
