Christmas in a Box

Get ahead this Christmas

Prepare a full and sumptuous three-course Christmas lunch for four people, ready to be finished on Christmas Day.

You will learn the techniques, then prepare white crab croquettes, confit duck and foie gras ballotine, with a spied plum puree and brioche; beef wellington (with all the trimmings) and a festively boozy Black Forest Gateau inspired dessert.

The classes take place in our stunning country kitchen with breathtaking views of Swinton Estate Grounds and Yorkshire Dales. We always encourage a hands on approach within the classes and all ingredients and equipment will be provided.
