Bistro Cooking

Bistro cooking is good old-fashioned home cooking done brilliantly, evoking childhood memories and comforting evenings in the kitchen. This course is inspired by great pubs around the country, and by our very own Mariners Public House.

You will learn how even the humblest of dishes can be elevated with a few well-chosen ingredients and that all-important cooking know-how. This course will help you to cook fantastic dishes at home for family and friends with the ease of a professional. The world is your oyster on this course or ‘mussel’ as the case as you could be making Porthilly doom bar mussels, a crab and prawn bruschetta or maybe a steamed treacle pudding with proper custard!

Throughout the day you will cook a starter, main course and a dessert – one of which will be part of your well-deserved lunch, which will be served by the team at Paul Ainsworth at No.6.

All courses are created using fresh ingredients, so each day will vary. Lunch is served with wine personally selected by our sommelier to complement your dishes, or if you prefer you can choose our homemade lemonade or another soft drink.
