Dudwell School


Dudwell School is set in the heart of the Mendip Hills in Somerset. It is run by Caroline Waldegrave,  the founding Principal, and former Managing Director and co- owner of Leiths School of Food and Wine, on whose board she remains. Caroline is the author of many cookery books including the Leiths Cookery Bible which was written with Prue Leith.

Dudwell Field Farm is the Waldegrave family home which boasts a purpose built brand new professional kitchen for a week’s learning how to cook for pleasure. The course runs for five days and is designed both for guests with little cookery experience and for those who wish to refresh or develop their cooking skills. You will learn the basic techniques and how to use them to produce a range of interesting and delicious recipes.

We also offer short bespoke courses as requested. These can be for a group wanting to learn a specific skill such as game cookery, working with chocolate, fish, sauces or knife skills. They can be for anything from a morning through to 5 days and can take place during the week or at weekends. Simply e-mail Caroline to discuss your ideas.

Recipe packs, aprons and all equipment will be provided.
