I hope it doesn’t seem strange to you that one of the most popular foodie experiences in England is that of learning how to create Indian dishes. Because for many years now, Indian food  has been the most popular cuisine in the UK. (Did you know that Queen Victoria was a devotee and employed Indian chefs?)

If you’re based in the UK, or are visiting, this is your chance to combine the joys of two cultures – the fabulous English countryside and our favourite style of eating.

The course is held at the Seasoned  Cookery School which is located in Catton Park near the village of Walton-on-Trent and in the grounds of the rural Catton Hall – a large country house built in 1745. You’ll experience English heritage plus learn how to create fabulous meals, taught to you by specialist chefs.

You’ll be in a small group (fourteen people max) so you’ll receive personal attention as you experience the flavours, techniques and methodology of traditional and contemporary Asian dishes. And you’ll have plenty of time to make the most of it as the course lasts for six hours.

Beginners and experienced cooks are welcome – and all abilities in between. FIND OUT MORE HERE.

You’ll see that you can also purchase the course as a gift – what a wonderful gift idea! See the school in action in the video below.


As you can see from the map below, the classes at Catton Park are located in central England. You’ll find that the journey from London takes about an hour and a half by car. There are regular trains too. Walton-on-Trent is an ideal base for exploring the local area.
