Brian Mellor is an award winning Master Chef of Great Britain, former Head Chef at BBC and Executive Chef at Granada TV. He has been involved in almost everything to do with food from cooking privately for celebrities and royalty to overseeing dozens of chefs in busy restaurants.
Passionate about passing on skills, Brian has opened a cookery school in Cheshire, North-West in the old Harthill Village School, that was previously closed. It unlocked its doors as part of a rural regeneration project bringing this 150-year-old English building back to life.
The grade II listed building has been carefully renovated to retain its character and keep its place at the heart of the community: a place for learning, meeting artisans and discovering tastes. It is ideal for leisure cookery classes during weekends, team-building activities during the week and development days for chefs.
This Christmas, the calendar of cookery courses is vibrant- full of flavours and aromas of freshly baked breads, roasted meats, homemade sauces, relishes or patisserie.
Thoughtful Christmas Culinary Gifts
The cookery days at the school are relaxed, well paced and a great way to expand your culinary repertoire, meet foodie friends or take the first steps in the kitchen with friendly expert advice.
These culinary gifts are for all level courses, during weekends or during the week.
