A busy morning getting to grips with the principles of traditional AGA cookery.
You may be moving to your forever home complete with a pre-loved AGA or perhaps you have saved hard for a new kitchen and would love to purchase a cast-iron cooker for the first time.
Whatever your circumstances, you are keen to maximise the potential of your new AGA and would love to learn within an inspiring and non-competitive environment.
This four hour session is the perfect opportunity to find your way around the stove, includes some ‘hands on’ cookery as well as learn the fundamental rules of making the most of your valuable new asset.
We will share lots of hints and tips, explain the AGA rules and why it helps to follow them, as well as give you the chance to hone some cookery skills.
How the day works:
Prior to your visit there will be an exchange of emails, so that we are fully aware of your expectations. As soon as you arrive, we will spend ten minutes chatting on an overview of the cookery session.
Please arrive at 11 am. The kettle will be on and there will be freshly ground coffee or a pot of tea waiting ready to be poured.
Next it is time to get our aprons on and start cooking. Most of the preparation will already be taken care of and we will show you around our 30 amp AGA and explain how it works and the benefits of cooking with a cast-iron oven.
We will spend the whole session cooking together in the farmhouse kitchen. All of the traditional AGA rules will be fully explained during this personal class.
Our philosophy is to teach skills rather than recipes, so we will also share tips on how dishes can be adjusted to take account of the seasons and your store cupboard.
What you will make during the class:
Classic Swiss roll or Savoiardi biscuits to take home (please bring a cake tin).
Cheese scones to serve with coffee
English Muffins or a batch of morning rolls to enjoy with lunch
Seasonal light vegetarian lunch
At the end of a busy morning you will take home a file full of useful recipes, tips and information and we will send electronic copies of your recipes too. If there are any questions that arise after your time with us, Lisa promises that you can contact her at any time for help and advice over the phone or email.
Following an AGA cooked lunch that we will enjoy together, giving you extra time to ask any questions from the four hour cookery class.
The tuition will draw to a close by 3.15 pm.
Your AGA is perfect for making the most of a busy family kitchen and for entertaining and this four hour introductory course will enable you to understand the rules of AGA cookery and to be able to convert all conventional recipes to AGA methods.

‘Yesterday’s Beef Stew was a rip roaring success with my son…..in his words restaurant standard! Mustard mash and vegetables all perfect too.l cheated on a chocolate cake homemade from a local cafe but not great, hence a baking class with you on my return. Lisa I can’t thank you enough for giving me confidence again to feel I can do it.’
