Root Camp in Suffolk – Week 1

17th July - 22nd July

Price: £725.00 (not including train fare*)

Teacher Chef: Sylvain Jamois (English, French and Italian speaker)
Assistant Chef: Hayley North

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 7 Italian students joining the course this is perfect for all GCSE students of Italian! This week presents a great opportunity way to improve your language skills while cooking, eating and working together in the field. However, do not be deterred if you do not know or are not learning Italian. It will run in the same way as our other courses – with our focus on cooking and field activities.

We will spend half our time preparing delicious meals 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.. Activities will include some of the following : foraging, working in the kitchen garden making sausages, curing and smoking meat, carving, butchery, beekeeping, chocolate tasting, building a hob oven. We will include a range of ‘supper talks’ from foodie-experts and have access to the lovely swimming pool at Cottage Farm.

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.
