Basic ingredients: Situated in a large, purpose built school on the edge of Harrogate, Bettys Cookery School opened in 2001 and is a dynamic enterprise that builds on the success of the much loved café tea rooms of the same name. Core skills such as bread, chocolate making and baking lie at the heart of a wide range of demonstration and practical courses suitable for novices to aspiring chefs. Their junior classes are always popular, and they also work with local schools. For those seeking a comprehensive cooking experience the ten-day Bettys Certificate Course should suffice. Attendees are well looked after, with breakfast, elevenses and lunch included on the day courses, and a complimentary Bettys’ apron. Courses cost around £175 for a full day and classes can hold up to 24 people.
They say: What sets us apart is being able to draw upon the rich source of skills and expertise of the craftspeople within Bettys Bakery who, together with our school tutors, share with the delegates the secrets of cooking ‘the Bettys way’.
We say: An impressive school offering something for every occasion from Effortless Entertaining to Teatime Temptations. The attention to detail Bettys makes for a great cookery experience – no wonder their classes fill up so fast.
