With cookery courses to suit all levels, every taste and even classes just for men, Bridge 67 Cookery School caters for just about the lot. Conveniently situated in the heart of the Midlands with the majority of its cookery courses ran as one-day affairs on a Saturday, there really is little excuse not to expand your culinary prowess, here in Leicestershire.
Set in a idyllic farm surroundings, where the basic cookery school began back in 2006, Bridge 67 now boasts its own purpose-built dual-floor school-house, thanks in part to an EDMA grant enabling the recent expansion of the business which sees cookery courses every Saturday with a liberal sprinkling of one-off courses mid-week throughout the year (2012 – Sat 7th Jan – Sat 8th Dec inclusive).
Using the original farmhouse backdrop, Jill Vickers began teaching the absolute basics of learning to cook (and before you say it, that’s not necessarily the ethos of the ‘Just for Men’ cookery class that will be showcased four times this year!). Through a deserved reputation of quality teaching, a real farm setting and, judging by the many testimonials of delighted customers on their site from over the years, a very large emphasis endorsing that learning to cook should be fun, the cookery school is now able to bring you many culinary experiences at differing levels to suit your ability.
As it mentions on their home page, it matters not whether you’re a novice and need instruction at level one basis (okay – the men’s class is pitched there) or need more refined skills through levels two and three, the cookery courses are made available to incorporate that requirement. There is even a specialist Italian class one Thursday in every month (except June and December) dedicated to cooking with Firenze and seasonal one-day events for advanced dinner parties to coincide with whichever season we happen to find ourselves.
There are spaces for the majority of the cookery classes left to run this year, all bookable through their online form; if there’s someone you know who’d benefit from the courses, you can even buy a voucher tailored to the specific event (I was going to say for a Valentine’s Day gift, but you’d have to be dead certain that sort of present was given and received in the right light!).
There’s far too much information to go into the details of the courses in one article, there are that many, so check back here tomorrow where we’ll go into the specifics of the best on offer to give you a taste of the menu they’re cooking up every week at Bridge 67 Cookery School.
p.s. the title of this article will be explained tomorrow, also…intrigued?
