Easy Dinner Party One Day Course

Preparing a dinner party for friends or family can be a stressful and frustrating experience. Our one day Dinner Party course is perfect for learning how to reduce the stress of dinner party cooking without sacrificing the high standards we all like to attain. This is achieved through teaching and demonstration of techniques together with tips and shortcuts.

A range of dinner party dishes will be prepared and cooked during the day and you will be given a folder containing all the relevant information plus the chosen recipes. We believe that the most essential ingredients in the preparing and serving of dinner party food are enthusiasm, planning, care and fun and we try to pass these traits onto our students.

On the Dinner Party programme you could well be cooking the following:- 

  • Cream of Carrot & Orange Soup
  • Roasted Rump of Lamb
  • Balsamic Onions
  • Cheese & Herb Pate with Melba Toast
  • Chicken Tagine with Dates and Honey
  • Almond Coriander Cous Cous
  • Strawberry Custard Cake
  • and much, much more...
The Dinner Party Course is suitable for students who have a basic to intermediate level of cooking skills.

 The pace of the course was just right for our group and help was always available for anyone who was struggling - Lynn K


Dinner Party Schedule

The dinner party day starts at 10:00 am with morning coffee and biscuits. This will give you the opportunity to meet up with your fellow participants. You will then be taken to our purpose built, fully equipped kitchen where there is plenty of working space for each student. There will be a run through of the dinner party menu plan for the day and tuition for the selected dishes. You will then prepare and cook your dishes sampling as you go. Finally a sit down meal will be served with wine in the afternoon. We aim to finish the course at 4:00 pm.

We hope we have tempted you to join our Dinner Party Course and look forward to welcoming you to our school situated in the beautiful countryside of South Gloucestershire.

 Graham and I both really loved the day and took away a lot of tips and information with us. It was a terrific day and the group we were
with were fantastic. Well worth the money and I have passed on the brochure I brought home with me to a colleague at work here.


 I also wanted to mention how good the booking arrangements & course materials were, it felt seamless & so professional. - Sarah B
