Last year we again ran Root Camps in the intimate and magical setting of Cottage Farm, Little Blakenham. We’re really excited to return to Suffolk with another group from Westminster School.

We will spend half our time cooking in our beautiful barn kitchen with one of our inspirational chefs. 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 set of kitchen skills to underpin their enthusiasm for cooking, as well as a booklet of all the recipes they have made.

The other half 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. We will include a range of ‘supper talks’ from foodie-experts, and if last years courses are anything to go by, these are going to be great.

The programme is work in progress. In the meantime if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us:
