Get back to basics with an alfresco day in North Somerset where you’ll learn to cook delicious fresh food, in a rustic stripped-back style.

Learn the skills needed to cook outside in a variety of ways and about the range of wood on offer, its individual qualities and how it can contribute to the final flavour of the food you cook.

Cook your own breakfast and then get to grips with trussing lamb for asado roasting, tending it in true Argentinian-style during, as well as roasting, smoking and cooking fish in clay for a sumptuous supper at the end of the day.
