Overview

Take your cooking to a new level whilst enjoying the Yorkshire Wolds landscape. The Yorkshire Wolds Cookery School, 6 miles from Driffield, aims to show you how to make superb food and have fun. The School has been finished to a very high specification with the latest appliances and equipment. There is no need to share on our day classes, we have plenty of blenders for everyone! There are four island cooking stations each with a Falcon Rangemaster induction hob and double oven. One of the stations can be lowered to accommodate people who may prefer to sit. We offer bespoke cookery days where you can hire the school and, as an option, stay with us in one of our nine 4* Bed & Breakfast rooms. This experience is ideal for parties, families or business groups wanting the pleasure of cooking and eating together.

Another enjoyable day at the cookery school improving my new found skills! Alison's patience ensured all my courses turned out to be impressive, to the extent our friends who were invited over for dinner the following evening left only clean plates!!
