The Cooking Experience, Hadleigh
Situated in the bustling and historic market town of Hadleigh, near Ipswich, Suffolk, The Cooking Experience is the brainchild of Mark and Annie David who set it up in their own home 11 years ago. Mark started his career as a trainee chef in a hot sweaty hotel kitchen in Leeds where he learned professional cookery skills over a very hot range! He eventually moved out front to be nearer the customers! His further career included 3 years at Waltons restaurant Chelsea, followed by 3 years with the legendary Egon Ronay and then Restaurant Manager for Robert Carrier in Suffolk. He now cooks with small groups in his bright, cheerful kitchen complete with 2 AGA cookers.
The Cooking Experience offers day courses, all hands-on and brimming with recipes to add to your repertoire! All comers are welcome whether they have an AGA or not, so whilst we cook on the AGA cookers and conventional ovens, the recipes are designed for all cookers.
- Quick, Easy and Impressive Entertaining
- Italian, Seafood, French Provincial
- Indian, Oriental
- Canapes and Party Food
- Baking and Delicious Desserts
- Christmas Without Tears and others
The atmosphere is relaxed and informal at The Cooking Experience, and there is plenty of time for chat and questions. All ages welcome and ability is not measured!
Gift Vouchers are available all year round, a day course makes a great gift for anyone.
Mark David is a seasoned AGA and General Cookery Demonstrator and operates a Home Service. If you have a decent size kitchen, and you can whistle up a group of, say 6–7 friends, then Mark will spend the day with you planning and preparing a dinner party for that evening. You will then cook the meal together and create other delicious dishes. Ideas flow, and you are left exhausted but with a new set of recipes!
