The Country Estate Carlton Towers in Yorkshire is launching ‘Cooks’ – its very own School of Food

Food loves and budding chefs will see the doors open to them at a prestigious location in Yorkshire for the launch of a new cookery school in Yorkshire.

The 17th century Country Estate Carlton Towers will open in Spring 2014 and promises to offer the chance to discover the art of traditional cooking, while keeping an eye on the future for contemporary cooking methods.

All ages and abilities can attend the classes in the original kitchens of the Grade I-listed building, home to Lord and Lady Gerald Fitzala Howard and their three children, and students will get the chance to use traditional features such as range agas and the butler’s pantry, alongside state of the art facilities and furniture from Yorkshire-based The Main Furniture Company.

Cookery School Manager at Carlton Towers, Nicola Shann said: “We are thrilled to be launching Cooks in the magnificent setting of Carlton Towers next year. There has been a revival of traditional cooking methods over the last several years and we hope 2014 is going to be the year that Cooks makes its mark as a unique School of Food”.

Cooks classes will be available for up to 12 guests and prices for non-residential classes will start from £145. Residential packages will be available at special rates for guests attending The Carlton School of Food.
