We are seeing a cooking revolution in the UK of late, with cookery masterclasses across the UK becoming the new ‘spa days out’ for friends and family alike to meet up, improve their skills and enjoy delicious treats.

The Luxury Restaurant Guide’s Head of Marketing, Claire Robinson, recently attended a masterclass titled ‘Lets have some Fun-Ghi’ at The Spread Eagle Hotel by multi-award winning Executive Chef Martin Hadden.

“As a keen forager himself, Martin had some fantastic tips and advice on where and what to pick in the UK – along with how to prep the mushrooms. He not only showed us how to make the perfect risotto but also gave all sorts of ideas and hints – from best knife practices to preferred brands for rice and truffle oil.

The real treat for me was when Martin joined us in the courtyard for lunch. He was completely fascinating, talking not just about food and techniques, but his past experiences and own personal favourite chefs, restaurants and dishes. “

We have some great autumn classes advertised on our diary page at the moment – many with member offers. Get booked up now for yourself, or as perfect treat for friends or family – here is a selection below of what is coming up.
