Back to school for top chef

Not content heading up one of the North East’s most acclaimed dining pubs, Rhian Cradock, chef/patron of The Feathers Inn at Hedley on the Hill, Northumberland, is about to pass on his skills and experience at a new cookery school.

Courses and classes are taking place throughout February and March (Mondays 6.30-9pm) at Ovingham Middle School. Courses and classes are taught by professional chefs who are working or have worked in the Feathers kitchen – all are hands-on, designed to develop the skills and confidence to make the dishes at home.

“All ingredients are provided,” says Rhian. “We have a demonstration kitchen and participants have their own work spaces with all the equipment needed – and the type you will find at home. You will be amazed how much you can learn.”

Speciality classes include bread, fish, pies, ferment and pickle; cheese, butter and yoghurt, and cooking vegan. Joining Rhian are expert tutors Pip Pedley and Phil Carr. And the best part? Every session involves tasting.
