As promised, we’re back in the Midlands today at Bridge 67 Cookery School with a more in depth look at the vast array of one-day cookery courses available in their purpose-built cooking school.
Here on cookerycourses.co.uk, we try and cover a bit of everything and that sentiment has obviously been adopted by Bridge 67, also. Everything from cooking bread and kitchen basics to learning to prepare advanced dinner parties to suit the season it’s covered here on the farm at Smeeton Westerby (you’d almost expect Jane Marple or Tom Barnaby to be learning to cook next to you at one of the cookery school‘s six Falcon range cookers, wouldn’t you?).
As well as a wide choice of cookery classes, the school also caters for all types of customer, too. There are lessons for the amateur and the advanced chef, hands-on family days and even a cookery lesson for ‘Men in the Kitchen‘, which in itself covers eight fantastic courses, guaranteed to impress the inlaws, prospective girlfriend or even the boss and their partner, should the occasion arise.
The cookery courses are not only for the family or individual. Over winter, team building exercises in the outdoors are never really appreciated, especially when it means sacrificing a couple of days over the weekend for the pleasure of humiliating yourself in a pool of freezing mud in front of you underlings.
There is a move in the market for this type of corporate event to move from the assault course into the safe and warm of the kitchen – the results are similar, working with unfamiliar ingredients to produce a team result but there is something tangible as well as psychological to take from the combined effort and something practical you can take home.
Bridge 67 offer just this type of corporate cooking class. Whereas the focus for the individual cookery classes is very much just that, small groups with close individual attention from their professional chefs, the corporate event can cater for up to twenty hopeful chefs, with plenty of room in the 24-seat dining room above the cooking school kitchen to claim bragging rights after the event. However, being on the farm whence the cookery class began in 2006, I’m sure they could arrange a dip into the mud if you were truly missing out on that aspect of the team-building exercise!
Join us on Monday when we explore the individual lessons in more detail, and the promised explanation of the title of the last article. On our home page you’ll find more cookery courses to choose from if Leicestershire’s a bit too much of a trek.
