We attended a BBQ Cook & Lunch event at Swinton Park on 25 May 2014. We were escorted to our venue from the main hotel in a minibus and were warmly welcomed by our chef and tutor, Steve. The weather could have been better, but the actual BBQ equipment was under cover so not an issue. The food we were to cook was already prepared and I was very impressed with the different foods we were to cook. Even bread!! There was a relaxed yet informative atmosphere on the course. The Deerhouse where we ate our lunch "that we cooked ourselves" was lovely and quaint. It was beautifully laid out with linen tablecloths and proper crockery etc. Not the usual plastic outdoor equipment you get at BBQ's!! There were blankets and heaters already alight due to the weather, and a waiter from the main hotel was in attendance. Another great feature was that Steve ate with us and continued giving out great cooking tips and stories from his career. To top off an already impressive event, we were served dessert too. What more could you ask for? Steve's email address with a promise of recipes and advice perhaps? Consider it done. We are now looking for other courses to attend. Thanks a lot Steve!!
