Our one and two day which can be purchased as a gift voucher, are the most popular. This is when you join in with others for a hands-on cookery course with a maximum of only four people per day.

Group courses begin at 9.30am with a welcome tea or coffee. You will then be seated for a demonstration of the first two courses of your three course menu, during which time there will be food tastings and time to ask questions.

Its then hands on into the kitchen to cook your own two course lunch to be enjoyed with a glass or two of good wine. During the final session it’s back to the kitchen to make at least four portions of a delicious dessert to take home.

The course will end around 5.30pm when you will take home your dessert, all course recipes together with fond memories of your day.



This is held during the early part of the week, when the day will be totally bespoke to the students requirements. These are ideal for adults of all ages who perhaps may have never cooked or somebody who wants to brush up on their skills or even somebody who fancies a career in catering.



These are a good introduction to Thackerys, when groups of four friends can come together for a fun filled day of demonstrations and food tastings with no hands on cooking (unless you want to help the chef).

Demonstration days begin at 10:00am and finish around 15:30pm. At the end of the demonstration you will all sit around the dinning table for a late lunch to enjoy the dishes demonstrated with a glass or two of good wine.

You'll get to take home all the recipes demonstrated so that you can try them out and impress your family and friends.



If you're already an avid cook but want to brush up on your knife skills, this is the workshop for you.

Graham will go through choosing the right knife for the job, the importance of knife sharpening and different knife techniques; all to get the most out of your time in the kitchen. These Workshops are the perfect way to gain confidence in the kitchen, and best of all, you get to eat a dish that Graham will demonstrate and cook with all of the ingredients you've lovingly prepared. 

These three hour courses are ideal for party bookings of four people and are available afternoons or evenings by prior arrangement.
