Essex: Braxted Park expands Cookery School venture

AN ESSEX cookery school has expanded its facilities with the completion of a new state-of-the-art kitchen.

The Cookery School at Braxted Park has now doubled in size since its launch two years ago, with the new facilities having been officially opened by Witham MP Priti Patel.

Designed by Colchester based company Davonport, the kitchen has been built to allow Braxted Park to continue to teach individuals who want to hone their culinary skills, as well as for businesses seeking a venue with a difference to host meetings, conferences or team building activities.

Since it first opened in 2009, the Cookery School has worked with a number of award-winning chefs to provide a diverse range of courses which are suitable for everyone from complete beginners up to budding master chefs. These courses include Daring Italian, Cooking for Beginners, Chocolate Heaven and Festive Entertaining.

Duncan Clark, estate owner and manager of Braxted Park, said: ”Since opening two years ago, the Cookery School has gone from strength to strength, and we now have some of the county’s top chefs helping people improve their culinary skills.
