Come to The Cook School Bewdley to discover the secrets of cooking with fire and smoke. These most ancient of artisan cooking techniques will be shared with you as you discover how to cook a range of delicious dishes over charcoal.
During this course all BBQ myths will be dispelled as we share with you all easy methods to ensure you never burn another banger! You will learn how to prepare a selection of meat, fish and vegetable recipes and watch them being cooked to perfection on our monolith grill. You’ll find out how to get the best out of your BBQ and any previous charred offerings will become a distant memory. In addition, you will learn how to create delicious marinades and scented dry rubs designed to complement your choice of meat or fish.
By the time you finish the course you will be filled with the confidence and inspiration to be able to replicate the dishes at home as well as being equipped with a clear understanding of how best to prepare and cook different cuts of meat. As the evening comes to a close we will send you home knowing that friends and family will receive your newly honed outdoor cooking skills with applause when you entertain with flair and flame at home.
Finally, you will enjoy all the dishes prepared and cooked for you for your dinner knowing that they have been carefully paired with a selection of Craft Beers and Wines. If the weather is kind you will be able to sit on the balcony or in the beautiful Kitchen garden overlooking the Wyre Forest and talk to Daren and your fellow students about what you have learnt until the sun goes down.
