A new cookery school is scheduled to open in March 2019 at The Grand, York.
Sessions will range from £65 for a half-day to £145 for a full day course led by expert tutors. Guests will learn how to prepare authentic dishes, with fresh local produce at the heart of each creation. Besides corporate days, there will be academy classes for those looking to advance their skills. Even kids will have an opportunity to get involved with bespoke classes during the holidays.
Philip Bolson, General Manager at The Grand says: ''The nation's love affair with cooking shows no sign of abating; our new cookery school promises to satiate the appetite with an array of courses, experiences and events to inspire and impress.”
With over 2500 square foot of space, the cookery school will have 16 workstations equipped with state-of-the-art induction hobs, electric ovens and premium cookery equipment. The purpose-built space will offer an adjoining meeting area with tea and coffee stations as well as a separate screening room for lectures, talks and non-cooking demonstrations. There will also be an external courtyard with herb garden and seating area. The space will be fully wheelchair accessible offering a station and place in the demo area with wheelchair-friendly heights, as well as step-free access throughout.
The project is one of the final stages of The Grand's £15 million expansion and refurbishment scheme, which includes 100 new luxury bedrooms and refurbishment of two restaurants.
