Root Camp in Suffolk – Week 1

17th July - 22nd July

Price: £725.00 (not including train fare*)

Chef: Sylvain Jamois (English and Italian speaker)

16 Participants Only!

Last year we ran a pioneering Root Camp week in the intimate and magical setting of Cottage Farm, Little Blakenham.

We loved it so much that we are heading back this summer and thanks to a group of 8 Italian students joining the course and our Founder Chef conveniently being fluent in Italian, this is perfect for all GCSE students! It will be an inspiring, truly interactive and engaging way to learn Italian. However, do not be deterred if you do not know or are not learning Italian. It will run the same as our other courses – with our focus on cooking and field activities.

We will spend half our time cooking in our beautiful barn kitchen with one of our founder chef, Sylvain. Recipes will be seasonal, economical and easy to replicate – and will include some more ambitious recipes to challenge and inspire! All Root Camp participants will go home with a clutch of kitchen skills to underpin their enthusiasm for cooking.

Half our time will be spent outside, working with some of our favourite local growers and producers. We are currently building on last year’s programme, and will include ferreting, foraging and working in the kitchen garden and storytelling. Additional activities may include: making sausages, curing and smoking meat, fishing and carving utensils. We will include a range of ‘supper talks’ from foodie-experts and have access to the lovely swimming pool at Cottage Farm.

The programme is work in progress. Further details will be announced at the end of February. In the meantime if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us:

*Root Camp will provide an escort from Liverpool Street Station, London – to Ipswich Station, Suffolk. A bus will meet the train and transfer the group to Cottage Farm.
