20% discount off a cookery day at Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s famous River Cottage. Treat yourself or give the perfect gift to the foodie in your life.


Here’s a chance to improve your cookery skills or give a fantastic gift to the foodie in your life, with a cookery course at Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage.

We have joined forced with Virgin Experience Days to help you make the most of 2021.  They take the pain out of gift buying or just treating yourself with their fantastic range of experiences. Even better, they are offering High50 subscribers a 20% discount on most of their 2021 experiences, including this One Day Cookery School at River Cottage.

Your exciting day at Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage will begin with a tractor ride up to the seventeenth century farmhouse where you will join the accomplished chefs for a fun and informal day of cooking. Upon your arrival you will enjoy a cup of tea or coffee along with River Cottage treats before taking part in five practical sessions focussing on key skills for making things like bread – where you will create your very own farmhouse loaf, and meat – where you look at the River Cottage philosophy of eating everything from nose-to-tail.

You will also enjoy a demo session where you watch the chefs prepare a delicious yet quick fish dish, before you put all your new skills together to create a mouth-watering three-course meal to indulge in after all your hard work. After your one day cookery school is complete you can relax and chat with the other attendees before jumping back on the tractor having learnt a host of different culinary ideas and techniques.

The package includes:

  • Welcome and introduction
  • One day cookery course including five practical sessions and one demo session
  • Samples, tastings and snacks throughout the day
  • Three-course meal
  • An informal chat with other participants and members of the team
