Honesty Cookery School

Whilst our cookery school has been closed throughout the covid pandemic, we are in the process of reopening. We are now taking bookings for our experience days and courses from September.

The Cookery School

Our courses take place in The Barn at North Sydmonton House. The barn was constructed in late 2013 using traditional methods and design. Its large green oak beams are an impressive sight and the stone floor, contemporary kitchen and interior design make it a great atmosphere for learning.  The views across the Hampshire countryside are stunning, making The Barn the perfect place to immerse yourself in the world of food and wine.

Our tutors come from all walks of life, but all have one thing in common: they are passionate about food.  We are passionate about encouraging people to try something new and enjoy the pleasures of home cooked food made from scratch.  We keep our class sizes small to allow for relaxed, friendly and hands on courses. They make great gifts!

The school is owned by cookery writer Romilla Arber, who wanted to create a place that people could come into and widen their horizons and present opportunities around food and drink that some might not have explored before and to meet like-minded people.  The school can also be used for team building events and meetings. It is an inspirational space that works well for a relaxed get together be it with or without cooking!

The Facility

The Honesty Cookery School is equipped with all you need to learn about cooking. There are two large ovens and all necessary modern cooking appliances. The stove is a large induction hob. We don’t pack our classes with participants as we feel that people learn more in a happy, intimate environment where experiences can be shared. Most classes are for no more than 8 people so you really do get hands on experience.

All equipment is provided so you just bring yourself and your enthusiasm.

The barn is available for professional private hire. It is a good venue for private meetings, small conferences and presentations. It has a state of the art audio visual system for videos and presentations. Lunch and refreshments can be provided.
