From the glorious surroundings to the infectious enthusiasm of our team, we passionately believe The Cookery School at Daylesford is a unique place to spend quality time with friends and colleagues.
Our private classes are perfect for team bonding, away days and staff rewards – get your hands dirty, engage in a little competition with workmates or simply sit back and let our team cook a celebratory meal from scratch, right in front of you.
Private classes are also a wonderful way to spend some quality time with friends and loved ones – create delicious seasonal dishes, let each person choose a recipe, get the young cooking for their elders, or just simply enjoy cooking together.
On your chosen day, the cookery school will be yours for the day, together with the undivided attention of The Cookery School team. We will create a menu based on the things you’d like to cook, or an area of particular interest such as butchery, quick and simple suppers, desserts or even The Perfect Summer Barbecue. Alternatively, you can leave it up to us to surprise you with seasonal delights from our farm and market garden.
We can host up to 48 guests in The Cookery School and as well as cooking activities can include a variety of activities such as time spent in our Haybarn Spa, floristry classes, cheese and wine tasting or foraging on the Daylesford organic farm.
