Tuck into a delicious culinary experience in Bakewell, home of the world-famous Pudding, and hone your hands-on skills on a specialist cookery course.
Bakewell is a charming market town in the heart of the Peak District that’s famous for its sweet and sticky Bakewell Pudding. The flakey, jam-filled pastry topped with egg and almond paste was made by accident in the early 19th century, and its recipe is a closely guarded secret in Bakewell’s top bakeries.
This culinary hotspot is also home to one of the best farmers’ markets in the country. On the last Saturday of every month delve into a staggering array of local produce, from honey and cheese to piles of farm-fresh vegetables and golden baked goods. Your own kitchen skills can be perfected at specialist courses run by Bakewell’s prestigious Hartingtons School of Food, with expert tutors giving masterclasses in everything from beer brewing to cheese making inside a beautiful converted mill.
Bakewell is 3 hours north of London by both car and train.
