Just returned home after spending a day participating in a Modern British cookery class at Yorkshire Wolds Cookery School. Set in the beautiful surroundings of what is Highfield Farm near the picturesque village of Southburn, near Driffield.
The school has been operating since 2010. The school and bed and breakfast accommodation has been finished to the highest specification. The staff are extremely friendly and efficient and a pleasure to work with.
The tutor for the Modern British course was Ali Bilton, who has enjoyed an interesting and varied career within the catering industry. She is professionally trained and has spent time working in London , Spain and Hong Kong. Her teaching style is relaxed but very professional and has a great enthusiasm for her craft.
The course was a full day including lunch.
I had a very enjoyable time and would recommend this school to anyone who enjoys cooking . Also if anyone ever fancies a night bed and breakfast in the Yorkshire Wolds,you would go a long way before you found somewhere as good as Highfield Farm.
On the day we made: Chicken Liver Pate with pomegranate jelly
Pork Belly braised with spices served with Braised Lentils
Pear Almond and Chocolate tart
