Cookery Courses

After almost 20 years I’ve stopped teaching my four-week “Cooking With Rosie” courses at Penny’s Mill. Very occasionally indeed, however, I can be persuaded to run short Recreational courses, or “Masterclasses” for experienced cooks – often former students – who want to top up their skills in one or two areas

This works best and is most cost-effective for a small group, and of course much depends on whether accommodation is available

There’s no doubt these occasions can be gently competitive, but even in the case of soufflés, size isn’t everything…

The Joy of Food

Whatever your age, a short cookery course is a great way to gain a new life skill, develop your confidence in the kitchen, and have huge amounts of fun at the same time

Being with your friends doing something completely different from everyday life is a real luxury, you’ll be so glad you found the time

You could learn to plan your menus and your shopping, eat better for less money and maybe eat more healthily as well – though that will depend on what you choose to cook!

Feedback

“It was ‘life changing’. Truly was – and thanks to Chef for the preparation, organisation, unending patience, teaching excellence, enthusiasm and endurance in the face of five elder children determined to absorb some culinary excellence and prove that it could be real fun – albeit occasionally teetering over the edge into exultant mania…” Eddie (pictured right)

“Binned Delia, put Rosie’s file in the gap… That was one fantastic week” Nigel

"Cooking with Rosie"

We had a lot of fun on these courses, and I still hear from many of the students I taught at Penny’s Mill over almost 20 years… Sadly those days are over but the vegetable garden is still flourishing! Check out the Raspberry jam at breakfast
