Private Cookery Lesson

Glenapp Castle is nestled in 110 acres of beautiful gardens and local woodland, where much homegrown produce finds its way from the garden to plate. Capitalising upon our location, this experience includes a tour of our wonderful gardens where we grow our own fruit, vegetables & herbs.

Chef will walk you through the gardens, picking herbs and the very best fresh Scottish produce before heading back to the kitchen.

This is where the magic happens! Working with Chef, you will learn all the secret tips and culinary skills to cook up a fabulous feast. With the ultimate aim of preparing a new and magnificent dish of your own, this activity is perfect for everyone, whether you are a beginner or just keen to take your cooking skills to the next level!
