Cook with celebrity chefs in Dorset


Share in Lesley Waters' and Mark Hix's kitchen secrets.

Deep in the heart of the rural Dorset countryside in a stunningly renovated 18th Century Farm is Abbots Hill Cookery School run by Lesley Waters. Here, you can unleash your inner chef and book on to a variety of exciting workshops and courses, all taught by Lesley herself using local ingredients.

Head to the coast and you'll find Mark Hix's Kitchen Table. Join Mark at his Charmouth home where he will demonstrate and cook a stunning array of dishes based on the best of the season’s ingredients. There will be plenty of time to steal tips from Mark as he creates a British seasonal feast in front of your eyes which is then served as part of a four-course lunch with wines to match each course.

Masterchef winner Mat Follas has moved his restaurant to 41 Cheap Street in Sherborne, and also runs popular wild food foraging courses.

Come and see why so many celebrity chefs flock to Dorset and try their creations first hand.
