RECIPES & NEWS

Spatchcock harissa chicken with bulghur wheat salad and a tahini yoghurt dressing

BARBECUE / MAIN DISH / MEAT & GAME / THREE WAYS WITH / SUMMER

This recipe is perfect for a crowd, feeding up to 6 people and requiring very little attention once the chicken is on the barbecue. We always make our own harissa paste in The Cookery School, it is so much more vibrant and flavourful than shop bought. You will only need half of the harissa for […]

Cedar-planked mustard glazed salmon with crushed new potatoes en cocotte

BARBECUE / MAIN DISH / MEAT & GAME / SEAFOOD / THREE WAYS WITH / SUMMER

Cooking over charcoal is something we love to teach throughout the summer months at the COOKERY SCHOOL, using ingredients picked straight from our organic Market Garden. Our guests often arrive a little daunted at the prospect of cooking over coals but once armed with our simple techniques and principles, guests will leave confident about mastering not […]

Miso-glazed aubergine with pickled radish and sesame seeds

BARBECUE / MAIN DISH / MEAT & GAME / THREE WAYS WITH / VEGETABLES / SUMMER

A real favourite on our Vegetarian bbq course this delicious recipe hails from japan “Nasu Dengaku” and can be made in the oven but will not have the same smoky tones that you achieve on the barbecue. The pickled radish is a good foil to the sweet, charred aubergine and works with many other vegetables too!

flavoured-butter

GRILLED CORN WITH FLAVOURED BUTTERS

BARBECUE / SALADS & SIDES / VEGETABLES / SUMMER

A stash of flavoured butters in the fridge is a sure-fire way to transform your summer barbecues and lunches into a truly special affair. Cut neatly and serve on a dish for bread, smother over barbecued sweetcorn with lashings of pepper, stir through fresh greens or drop on top of a succulent steak just before serving. These two recipes are […]

chamomile-and-honeycomb-ice-cream

CHAMOMILE & HONEYCOMB ICE CREAM

DESSERT / FRUIT / PUDDING / SPRING / SUMMER

This gently fragrant ice cream is sweetened with Daylesford Honey from our own Beehives. Special enough to be served as a stand-alone dessert, dusted with crushed honeycomb, it is also heavenly alongside grilled summer peaches, lightly poached apricots or freshly hulled strawberries. Join us for our Mastering Patisserie course to learn more delicious dessert recipes like this.  find out more
