Sure, you could book a nice restaurant for Valentine’s Day – but why not do something a bit different and get in the kitchen together? At cookery school Daylesford, you and your Valentine will be guided through cooking a series of romantic recipes to produce an intimate feast to share. Begin with an introduction over freshly made coffee and tea, followed by a series of demonstrations and hands-on cooking sessions. You’ll of course get the chance to try everything you make, along with a glass (or two) of wine from Daylesford’s sister estate in Provence, Chateau Leoube. Be sure to visit the on-site Farmshop while you’re there too so you can take home some organic treats, or the ingredients to re-create the dishes you’ve made at home – guests of the Cookery School receive a 25% discount to use.
Daylesford’s story began over 40 years ago when founder Carole Bamford decided to turn her family’s farmland into sustainable organic farming, first in Staffordshire and then in the Cotswolds. It is now known as one of the UK’s most sustainable farms, producing meat and poultry, fruit and vegetables and dairy products. They also have have a number of restaurants, shops and cafes across the country, plus a Cookery School at their idyllic Cotswolds farm.
