We've been thinking about introducing cookery holidays into our programme for a long time, and we've decided that 2014 is going to be the year!
As we speak, Hamish Scott-Brown, our photographer tutor, is in Puglia on a reccy for both photography and cookery locations. He has discovered a two hundred year old trulli, traditional stone building specific to the region, in which we can learn to cook with 'Mama'. Perfect for keeping your foodstuffs cold inside the shaded, dark and cool stone building.
Here are some of the images he has sent to us......and if that doesn't make you want to join us; nothing will!
To launch our new venture, we've teamed up with local celebrity chefs The Fabulous Baker Brothers, who have just opened a new cookery school in Gloucestershire, near our offices. They have offered our competition winners a days cookery course (Chocolate Workshop!) and a signed copy of their brand new cookbook! We hope this entices you to enter our competition on Facebook and join up to our cookery holiday mailing list - we will be able to keep you up to date with our new discoveries, trips and finds - and of course, our long awaited Cookery Holidays 2014!
We can't wait.....
