Coldsmoking food courses. We regularly host one day practical courses on food smoking. On this course you will learn the basics of smoking your own food. We cover both the practical and theoretical aspects of this wonderful craft. The one day course includes how to make and use a cold smoker, hot smoking, sourcing wood, brining & salting, Health & Safety, producing smoke and smoking food. During the day we will be smoking up to eight different kinds of food from cheese to fish and from olives to eggs. We also host a range of other classes including Sausage Making, Meat Curing & Charcuterie and Cheese making. For future course dates please visit the website for details.

What an excellent day, although it was a cold day and I thought hot smoking could be a better option, Turan soon squashed that idea! So much food to choose from, fish was expected, along with meat, but eggs! yes it does work. The day was busy, both indoors and out, and a lot to take in, but Turan made... More

This is my second course run by Turan ( the first was Charcuterie) and I really enjoyed the day. Turan and Alison were really helpful as I wasn't fully mobile. The course content was just right for me , as I'm taking my first steps in smoking food. Nice to see that this can be achieved with only a moderate... More

Really friendly, interesting course. We learnt all the stages of sausage making, it's certainly got a knack to it! Came away with some of our produce, which was delicious. Would love to do another course in the future.

I have attended two courses led by Turan (sausage making and charcuterie). They are informative and clear and you can be as hands on as you want to be. Turan is inspirational in his approach - really keen to enable his students to take up an enjoyable new hobby. The pace is well-balanced with plenty of time for questions (and... More

I have been on a cold smoking course and also a meat curing course. Both were brilliant and worth every penny. Turan and his wife Alison were very friendly and also had a wealth of knowledge. Turan's enthusiasm for the subjects soon rubs off on you and you are wanting to learn more. I am going to start my smoking... More

I am really hard to buy a gift for but this was something special.The fact that the course was on my birthday made it even better. Over the last few months I have been curing my own bacon and wanted to take it one step further so this course with a step by step on cold smoking was ideal. First... More

I love traditional cooking methods and am already an avid smoker (not the tobacco kind) and have made some bacon using you tube as guidance. I found however that you could see several methods all contradicting each other. I booked this with some friends and am already hocked with several meaty projects underway. The best thing is that you do... More

Wonderful day. Interesting, inspirational and informative with a great tutor, Turan. If you are interested in food this could be an exciting new venture as it is for me. Thanks Turan. Can't wait to join another course.
