Swinton Cookery School is a relaxed, open demonstration kitchen housed in a converted Georgian stable wing adjacent to Swinton Park hotel, excellent for the preparation and skillful handling of great food and fine wine.
The Swinton Estate team, on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, are passionate about using sustainable local produce throughout the four seasons.
The four-acre walled garden behind the hotel is planted with fruit, vegetables and herbs, providing a ready source of fresh seasonal ingredients for the cookery school kitchen, alongside estate venison, rabbit, smoked trout and game, a few examples of the local ingredients sourced from the wider estate.
The Cookery School runs a busy program of half day and full day hands-on, practical cookery classes throughout the year.
Courses can be either residential or non residential and are available for all ages and ability levels, including children’s cookery lessons.
From classic baking and Sunday roasts to Sushi and Thai, there’s a course to suit everyone. So if you are beginner with a keen interest or a professional, broadening their knowledge, join us at Swinton and fall in love with cooking all over again.
