Somerset Cottage

All year round

Small, intimate cooking classes which require nothing from participants beyond an enthusiasm for good food.

The classes are held in the morning, in the restaurant kitchen. Guests sit and watch while owner Rick prepares the dishes and co-owner Anne explains the process (and stirs the occasional pot!) After all the food has been created – usually 2 hours or thereabouts – you head out to the restaurant to a lunch table where you get to eat and drink and chat. The conviviality and exchange of ideas never ceases to astound! The classes for the current series are always posted on the website.

Each class within a series is a repeat of the same subject matter, so the idea is, that you choose the date that works for you, and book via the website. If you’d like advance notification of when the dates are going to be listed, sign up for the newsletter, or follow the Facebook or Instagram page, and you’ll be alerted. A beautiful studio is a wonderful accommodation option also.
