Market Day Cookery

Join us on a trip to a local farmers market to meet producers and learn about there produce. Here we will buy ingredients to take back to the kitchen (via a speciality drinks shop) for an afternoon of relaxed cooking, eating and drinking.

  • Visit one of Aberdeenshires finest farmers markets
  • Stop at a speciality drinks shop to purchase and learn about locally produced drinks
  • A hands on cookery class, where you will produce a 3 course meal using the best of local seasonal produce

The monthly “Market Day Cookery Class” is a cookery class with a difference. With a maximum group of 8, we will meet in Aberdeen in the morning for a brief introduction before we take a short drive out to one of the many fantastic local Farmer’s Markets which Aberdeenshire has to offer.

Here we will get a chance to chat with producers and learn about seasonality and what makes their product so special. As a group we will decide, based on seasonality and availability, what to buy for our cookery class. We will have time for a quick bite, coffee and a yap before we head back to the bus.

Before we head back to Aberdeen we will stop at a speciality drinks shop and choose some wine, beer or soft drinks to go with our meal. We will then arrive back at the cook school where we will meet our fun and talented chef. Using a good balance of hands on cookery and chef’s demos we will produce a three-course locally sourced meal to enjoy with some drinks.

Expect a fun, informative casual day out where we will meet hard working producers, hear their stories and get hands on with some of the finest produce on offer. All this for just £115pp for a morning trip to the market, cookery class and a 3 course meal (drinks not included).

This is a full day tour with pick up in Aberdeen at 9am and we will expect to be finished up around 5pm in Aberdeen.
