Private Classes, Learn At Home Events and Demonstrations.

Manna Group

Spend time with family, friends or colleagues improving your skills  with expert tuition.  Choose your own course content and your own menu.


If you are a work group, hen party, a book club, a college reunion, or just friends wanting to learn together, we can create a class to fit your exact requirements. Just call or email and we’ll start planning.


All workshops will be custom built to suit your needs.  Classes can take place here at the cooking school or in your own home or work premises if facilities allow.


Here’s just a taste of the private sessions we have recently provided:

Pizza Party: A local book club used our venue as a meeting place for their discussion then enjoyed a session making their own pizzas.


Demo & Lunch: A Women’s Institute Group joined us at the school for a vegetarian cooking demonstration followed by lunch.
Professional Chef Training: David has visited a restaurant in Yorkshire and Essex to spend two days teaching the in house chefs how to get the best from their newly installed woodfired ovens.


Private Woodfired Classes: We have run woodfired classes at customers own premises in Somerset, Surrey, Norfolk and many other venues.
Canadian Celebration: Holly and David flew to British Columbia, Canada, for three days teaching a group of family and friends as part of a large family celebration.


Family Bread-making Class: A mother and her two daughters came to the school for a one day bread making class and a nice girls’ day out.
Team Tapas: An NHS team from Devon NHS Trust spent a half day making and eating a selection of tapas.


Corporate Walk & Cook: David took a small corporate group for a guided walk on the nearby coast path followed by an afternoon team cooking experience.
Morso Forno Classes: David has delivered private training using Morso Forno Ovens in Wandsworth, Oxfordshire, Mevagissey and at the school. Pizza Professionals: We have run several two-day professional woodfired classes for pizza masterclasses for new businesses and restaurants.



All private events are individually costed after discussion of the format and content.

Events at premises other than the cooking school will incur travel and possibly accommodation costs.
