Our Christmas Cookery day is perfect for anyone who wants to make special vegetarian dishes and crowd pleasing creations for celebrating with friends and family.

Course Details

Each Christmas, we come up with a completely new menu.

We will cook a selection of savoury nibbles, appetisers, main dishes and puddings, which you can mix and match to cover the variety of meals over the festive days.

We will help you to plan and create the perfect main course with delicious side dishes as well as canapés, rich puddings and sweet treats.

The day will include making dishes that can be cooked ahead, freezing guides and tips for how to save time in the kitchen.

The day will involve lots of hands on cooking as well as demonstrations and knife skills.

There will be several breaks for tasting and we will finish the day with a pre-Christmas meal that we have made during the day accompanied with organic wines or juices.

The day will end at 4.30, leaving you plenty of time to experience the delights of the famous Bath Christmas Market which closes at 9pm.

At the end of the day you will be given a pack of recipes to take home so that you can create the perfect stress free Christmas at home.

It was fantastic, all brilliant. So wonderful to have Rachel and Lydia’s experience, insight and invaluable tips. A joy!

I am so proud of my mince pies – they are the most delicious mince pies I’ve had, in fact I don’t remember better ones! I can’t wait to start practising and making more!

I’ve been celebrating the class via social media!
