JSR, one of the UK's largest, family-owned farming businesses, has
opened a brand new cookery school in Southburn near Driffield, as
part of its mission to improve the eating quality of meat. The
Yorkshire Wolds Cookery School will offer a variety of courses and
demonstrations to help students improve their skills and learn more
about the art of cooking.
The school's courses will be run by in-house Chef, Ali Bilton.
However local Chefs will also be able to hire the facilities to
teach their own master classes. In addition, the school can be used
to host corporate functions and team building events.
The Yorkshire Wolds cookery school is the only school of its
type in the East Yorkshire area and boasts high quality
accommodation for visitors, including six guest rooms and a three
bedroom holiday cottage at Highfield Farm.
The school's one day courses offer eight students the
opportunity to roll up their sleeves up and cook themselves. The
cookery demonstrations will be shorter in length and will allow
20-25 students to watch how dishes are made. Forthcoming cookery
demonstrations include canapés, Christmas treats and a curry night.
The number of students per course and demonstration are limited to
ensure each student can have one-to-one tuition time. Disabled
facilities are available both for the cookery courses and the
