Start by learning how to cook with East Lothian's renowned pork, known for its tenderness and flavor.

You'll also work with a selection of locally grown vegetables, including celeriac, red cabbage, and suede, each bringing a unique taste and texture to your culinary creations. Our instructors will share tips and techniques for handling these ingredients, from preparation to cooking methods.

As a special treat, you'll create a dessert using foraged elderflower to make a creamy panna cotta. This delightful and fragrant dessert captures the essence of East Lothian's wild countryside, adding a unique touch to the experience.
