Bramble kitchen cook club

Mary Cadogan's cookery workshopsWelcome to my Cook Club where I will be hosting a series of relaxed and informative cookery workshops  over the year ahead. Classes are held in  my cosy country kitchen and are for a maximum of four guests so plenty of time for questions and discussion.

Course fees include a folder of recipes, all ingredients, plus tea, coffee and home made biscuits.

You will come away with new kitchen skills, extra confidence, a clutch of good tips and tricks. This is not chefs food, but good home cooking at it’s best- I hope you will join me soon.

Our Cook and Dine sessions add something extra. They involve plenty of hands-on cooking and give you the opportunity to invite a friend or partner to join us in the evening to share what we have cooked with a glass of wine or two in our candlelit salon.

Make your own edible gifts

Spend a happy afternoon making some very special edible gifts including raspberry and rosewater macarons, chocolate salami, orange confit, and festive florentines. We will then prettily package all we have made and you will take home a sample of each.

Where we are

Croscombe is a charming Somerset village just 2 miles from the historic city of Wells.
Should you wish to make a weekend of it there is plenty to see and do in the area including the Bishops palace and Cathedral in Wells, also Vicarage close, the oldest inhabited street in Europe. There is a great Farmers market on Saturday mornings and some good pubs and restaurants in the surrounding villages. Click here for more information about Wells


There are several good b&b’s in our village, all just a short walk from our cottage:

Hill View Cottage

The Cross

Paradise House

Alternatively, if you would like to stay in a self catering cottage just over the road, let us know and we can arrange it for you.
