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.
Set in the North Yorks Moors National Park and based close to Whitby and a spectacular coastline, surrounded by a wonderful rural landscape full of ancient woodland and heather moorland.
Our local suppliers will be delivering your ingredients and telling us what’s happening in their world at that particular moment. I am the one who will be doing the teaching. We don’t employ outside executive chefs to do the courses. It will be me, working with you .The courses I have created are influenced by my globetrotting cooking adventures from Britain, Europe,The Pacific Rim ,Japan ,South and North America and Australia . My recipes are modern inspired and imaginative using the best produce North Yorkshire has to offer. We offer full hands on courses for all cooking abilities , learning new skills,cooking methods,unusual ingredients and creating and presenting fantastic dishes .
Please call me if you have any questions at all about a visit to The Arches or contact me directly through the website.
