Course Marks Partnership Between Cooking Schools

Since 1995 Ashburton Cookery School has been setting exceptional standards in teaching, cooking and using local produce. These are also the reasons why Ashburton is offering its customers in the North of England an opportunity to learn at The Cooking School at Dean Clough who will be partnering with Ashburton to deliver its 5 day intermediate cooking course later this year.

Darrin Hosegrove, Chef Director at Ashburton Cookery School said, “The Cooking School at Dean Clough is the only place in the North of England that this course could be delivered. They have experienced and talented chefs, who share our values and will deliver to our exacting standards.”

From 17 September The Cooking School will teach enthusiastic home cooks who want to learn a broad range of cookery skills and modern recipes with a focus on professional presentation. The Intermediate Cooking Course is a perfect way to hone skills and has been taken by individuals looking to set up their own business. The course can also be taken as a cookery holiday, or for personal development.

Local hotels in Calderdale are also offering special rates for visitors to the area for the Ashburton course, which could bring in a boost to local tourism is the area.

Matthew Benson-Smith, Director of the Cooking School said, “This is a very strong course developed by Ashburton. In these 5 days we’ll cover everything from soup, bread, fish, meat, vegetable dishes to chocolate, creams and custard. We can assure anyone taking the course they will complete the course a far better cook.”

The course marks a fantastic new partnership between Ashburton Cookery School and The Cooking School at Dean Clough. For more information or to book your place visit or
