Enjoy a Cooking Holiday in Devon with Exeter Cookery School
The beautiful county of Devon remains a firm favourite with tourists and has a special place in many visitors’ hearts.
Why a cooking holiday in Devon?
Devon is rightly famed for its mild climate, picturesque villages, historic towns and fantastic food, making it the go-to destination for learning to cook.
A popular tourist destination
With its undeniably bucolic charm, Devon is the most popular tourist destination in Britain after London. It is also the only county in the UK to have two coastlines from which come some of the freshest fish and seafood in the land.
Famous for its rolling hills and rich pastures, Devon produces some of the finest fruit, vegetables, meat and dairy to be found anywhere in Britain. It is also home to ward-winning wines, beer and cider.
Fantastic Devon produce
Cookery is at the very heart of Devon life. We have an abundance of great regional produce, some beloved dishes (everyone loves a Devon cream tea!) and a great pride in cooking.
Other dishes include Devon Splits (a kind of cream bun with local cream and jam), Pasties and Ambrosia Rice Pudding! Regional ingredients include clotted cream, butter, fish and rare-breed and free-range meats – making Devon the perfect place to experiment with great produce and learn to cook while on holiday.
If you’re thinking of coming on an extended cookery course in Devon you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to eating out. The region boasts no less than four Michelin starred restaurants and a plethora of high quality eateries that won’t break the bank.
A culinary school with great transport links
Our cookery courses are situated in Exeter, the Capital of Devon. A convenient network of rail links, motorways and airports ensure that we aren’t difficult to reach. But couple this with Devon’s laid back rural pace of life and you’ll find it a hard place to leave!
Exeter is well served by road, rail and plane: the M5 terminates here, we have four mainline rail stations and a busy international airport serving London, Manchester, Newcastle, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dublin.
This places Exeter in the perfect location to stay while in Devon, with easy access to Dartmoor and it’s little villages – Lustleigh, Widecombe-in-the-Moor, Ashburton & Princetown – as well as the English Rivera and stunning north coast, just a short car ride away.
So, come to Devon on a cookery course that celebrates all that is good about our lovely region.
