10th Anniversary - Cookery Classes with Jean-Christophe Novelli at Alnwick's brand new Cookery School. 

Jean-Christophe Novelli is returning to our 10th Anniversary Festival and this year we are giving you an amazing opportunity to actually cook with him.

Outcook, Alnwick's brand new cookery school opened on the 1st February 2014 and they have a cookery class on Saturday 20th September in the afternoon and a class on Sunday morning. The cookery school is home-from-home and designed with elegance and comfort in mind. There are 8 workstations each with its own hob, cooker and equipment. Spaces are limited but you can book online if you love food and want to spend a couple of hours in the kitchen with a world famous chef don't miss out!

We are delighted that Outcook are hugely involved this year and would urge people to check their website to see all the classes available. The use of local produce is paramount and the classes are great fun and informal. There is something to suit everyone's taste and budget and they can even custom-build a class for a party of people or for team-building.

Stalls are nearly full and it is brilliant to see some new faces this year. We will have around 65 food stalls in the Market Place and there will also be the opportunity to take part in our cookery demonstrations.
