In view of the government requirement for all schools, cafes, restaurants, pub and leisure facilities to close in order to help limit the spread of the corona virus, all of our classes are suspended until further notice. At this point we anticipate that will be the end of June.
Anyone who has booked and paid for sessions during this period will be contacted individually and we will discuss options for rescheduling or a credit voucher. We are currently working on getting as much of the Autumn/Winter programme on the website - and for early 2021.
Our premises are now closed but the staff team can still be contacted by phone or email between 10am and 4pm Monday to Friday so, if you have any concerns or questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch. We also will be very happy to process bookings for future sessions or for vouchers, which will now have an 18 month ‘shelf life’.
Please check our website for any updates and our social media platforms, where we will remain active and keep you entertained!

Thursday 7.00pm- 9.30pm | Led by Peter Vaughan
Having had a classical French culinary training through the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts, then working in fine dining and Michelin star restaurants before opening his own restaurant, The Bistro, Devizes, Peter Vaughan knows that the most popular choice on a restaurant menu is steak. Many people people say that they just can't seem to cook it properly at home. This session is on the programme by popular demand and you will learn all the tips and tricks that go towards creating this favourite dish with delicious accompaniments.
In this session you will learn:
- The difference between forequarters and hindquarters and what cuts make a great steak (not necessarily the expensive ones)
- What can go wrong (or pointers to success!)
- Sauces: wine reduction; peppercorn sauce plus variations
- Garnishes & presentation skills
The class is a busy hands-on session. All ingredients, equipment and aprons will be supplied PLUS we will do the washing up!
The small group size (maximum 10) enables you to get plenty of attention, whether you want to be helped or stretched. You will be working in a friendly and sociable environment.
The evening will finish with supper (including wine).
This session is not suitable for vegetarians, vegans and people who don't eat red meat.
