ABOUT

THE SCHOOL

We believe at The Arches we are a bit different from other cookery schools. For a start, we are based in a converted barn at Grinkle Park Farm on my brother Richards working farm, the farm also accomadates my sister Paddy,s successful Eventing yard and not forgetting mum who grows all our vegetables and herbs we use in the cookery school.
