No shouting in this kitchen, just oodles of fun while you learn how to impress with your cooking under the guidance of Head Chef Stuart Phillips. Action packed day, learning lots of new skills, enjoy lunch and you get to take away what you have cooked.

See the video below to get a flavour for how the kitchen works at The Hundred House Hotel. You’ll also see how Stuart collects local ingredients for his recipes.



Stuart aims to pass on experience, knowledge and interesting ideas to anybody of any ability. As long as you can tie an apron, you’re in !

Commercial kitchens are hot, dangerous and stressful places – but they also hum with drama and passion.
