Christmas Parties

Menu Options

Menus can be tailored to fit with dietary requirements, likes and dislikes or we can specially design a menu for you.

Incorporated into each session is a range of challenging techniques, so that everyone takes away with them a sense of achievement and the ability to replicate the dishes at home again. If you would like to add a competitive element to your event ask us about a special Christmas bake off style event.

Items in brackets are for the Gold package only.

Wine tasting add on

Our wine expert joins your session to do the wine tasting.  We will tailor the tasting to your team so if there is a specific area of wine you want to know about, please do let us know.  For a general introduction to wine, we usually select several wines to taste, some of which will be used to taste against the menu you have chosen.

Adds an extra 1.5 hours to your event, cost is an additional £60 +VAT per person.

Chocolate add on

The group all taste and compare a variety of high quality chocolate, learn how to temper chocolate, make chocolate discs, white truffles, milk truffles and dark truffles – all using wonderful Valrhona chocolate. The session is great fun and everyone gets to take home their own box of Cookery School chocolates.
