Feathered and Furred has won the Best 1 Day Cookery Course at the UK & Ireland Cookery School Awards.
“This course is so thoughtfully crafted – even the name Feathered and Furred piques your interest and the course is gripping from start to finish. It comprises active forays in the Dorset countryside, hands-on acquisition of new skills back in the kitchen and is rounded off with a true field-to-fork meal.”
