Learn to cook award-winning dishes in Ventnor

Foodies visiting the Isle of Wight in the coming weeks will not want to miss out on the chance to learn new cooking skills at award-winning restaurant The Hambrough.

On selected dates between now (October 28th) and March 5th 2014, you can find out all the best culinary tricks in the kitchen at the Ventnor fine dining establishment.

Head chef Darren Beevers has organised various masterclasses designed to equip amateurs with the knowledge they need to impress their friends and family back home.

The next workshop is taking place on October 30th and is entitled From Farm to Plate. As you can imagine, this will see participants discover how to prepare meat ahead of cooking, and will be run by Mr Beevers alongside his sous chef Danny Perjesi.

In the coming months, the pair are also set to host classes on cooking and preparing local fish and seafood, breadmaking, producing the perfect pasta dish and giving the classic Christmas dinner a modern twist.

If you're unsure about how to work with pastry but would love to find out, then the Sweet Treats session taking place in February is ideal for you.

All the masterclasses cost £65 per person to join and are held between 10.30am and 1pm. Anyone who attends is invited to join the chef and sous chef for lunch afterwards, where they can pick their brains for the very best cookery tips.

Perhaps someone you love is passionate about food - why not treat them to a place on one of the courses as a Christmas gift? Each class takes just eight people, so it is best to book as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

While you're in Ventor, you should also take the opportunity to explore the seaside resort, which is famous for its glorious beach, beautiful Cascade Gardens and plethora of fantastic cafes, restaurants and pubs that line the esplanade.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801654227-ADNFCR
