Courses at the Simply Good Taste Cookery School cover everything from bread-making and preparing and cooking fish to mastering knife skills and baking without gluten, all designed to make you a whizz in the kitchen.

Classes are run from the Rheged Visitor Centre in Penrith, whose grass-covered roof fits in perfectly with the surrounding hills of Cumbria’s countryside. Rheged’s ethos of sourcing produce from nearby farms echoes the TV chef’s own love of cooking with local ingredients.

Pete also hosts bespoke cooking and baking days for group bookings which can be combined with dinner and a live broadcast of theatre, ballet or opera – a great excuse to get some friends together on a group holiday.
