    • You will be fully capable of creating a Woodspeen classic starter, main course and dessert
    • Discuss what makes up great taste in a dish
    • Where possible they’ll be using produce from our own vegetable plots to start to create some of the classics
    • Enjoy your starter with your fellow cooks around The Chef's Table for lunch, The tutor will masterclass the main-course for you to re-create at home, and the main course you have made will be packed up for you to serve at home.

    To take away: Main course and Dessert made on the day and all notes and recipes.
