Northcote opens cookery school

Northcote in Langho, Lancashire, is opening a cookery school next month as part of its ambition to become one of the top 10 luxury hotels within the UK.

Northcote Cookery School will offer a variety of half- and full-day courses at all levels, led by head tutor Michael Vanhese, formerly of Bettys Cookery School.

Ranging in price from £95 for a half-day session up to £250 for a full-day course, all tuition will take place at the Chef's Table, within a kitchen that features equipment from Stuart Frazer Kitchens, SieMatic, Gaggenau and Goodfellow & Goodfellow. Recipes will be supplied on iPads with chef patron Nigel Haworth and head chef Lisa Allen also delivering courses.

All tuition will include morning tea and coffee with pastries followed by a two-course lunch with wine, while the full-day courses will also serve afternoon tea and scones.

Some £7m is currently being invested in upgrading and expanding the 14-bedroom Northcote, which will see it growing to 28-bedrooms with a new 85-cover restaurant and 45-cover Louis Roederer Private Dining Suite.
