Harts Barn Cookery School - Family Cooking Session

We've just got home from a really fun day at the Harts Barn Cookery School. 

We booked a family session for 4 hours where us and other families would be cooking a 3 course meal. 

It was great fun from start to finish.  The lady running it was really friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

We made a watercress soup for starters with flatbreads.  I was dubious about the soup as I'm definitely a tomato soup person but it was delicious.  The flatbreads were great and so simple to make.  Our main course was frittata; we did a veggie one and a meat one to please everyone.  Unfortunately these went wrong and to be honest were awful.  Libby did a mean salad though.  Desserts was meringues which we made and we could decorate how we wanted.  I have to say ours which were a bit of a play on a strawberry shortcake were divine. 

The whole day went really well.  The booking was simple and easy, the teacher was lovely, the lady doing the tidying was helpful and the facilities were lovely (apart from the blow torch which broke oops).  The setting of the cookery school is lovely in the heart of the Forest of Dean and due to lovely weather we ate everything outside.

I cannot recommend this highly enough and we will be back.
