Enjoy the ‘how to’ of cooking with the much-lauded and award-winning chef Christopher Stockdale. You’ll enjoy a four-course tasting menu and a splash of four delicious local wines. Gather with us in the beautiful Wallingford and its surrounds, collecting edible goodies from the garden, trufflery and farmland. You’ll help chop, bake, salt, fry, sauté, churn, braise and ‘fire and ice’ the produce in our pool house, all the while tasting the fruits of your prepared dalliances.
