A Course at Philleigh Way Cookery School
For a Christmas gift with a real difference, why not book your loved one in on a cookery course at Philleigh Way? Sometimes an experience is just as special, if not moreso, than a product.

Set on a beautiful farm on the Roseland, this cookery school takes place in a huge contemporary kitchen and usually involves trying sample dishes and enjoying a glass of something special during the course. You can book your family, friend or partner straight on to a specific course, or you can purchase a gift voucher for them to choose and spend as they wish. Head to their website for more information and to start shopping.
