New Year New You

05-01-2010 Brand new healthy eating cookery courses on the Isle of Wight just £295 per person through Red Funnel Holidays.

After the indulgence of Christmas, Red Funnel Holidays is offering the perfect antidote with brand new healthy eating cookery courses at the Four Seasons Cookery Academy in Fishbourne on the Isle of Wight.  The new two-night residential courses are offered from Friday to Sunday on three weekends in early 2010 and cost just £295 per person, including all accommodation, tuition, meals, plus fresh Isle of Wight produce and guide books.

Held in an informal setting, the new weekends offer the chance to learn healthy eating cookery techniques and recipes with academy owner Michele, as well as time to explore the Isle of Wight, itself famed for fresh local produce.  Commencing with a one-pot supper on the Friday night, guests then come together to cook both lunch and a three-course dinner on the Saturday, with free time on Saturday afternoon to see the Island.  Sunday lessons focus on a brunch menu, leaving guests free to leave any time after this, or stay on for further sightseeing.

Accommodation is offered at one of two holiday cottages in Fishbourne and with limited places, those interested should book early for the confirmed dates of 15-17 January, 22-24 January and 5-7 February 2010.

Travelling to the Isle of Wight is easy with Red Funnel. Vehicle ferries run regularly around the clock from Southampton, which is within easy reach of the M3 and M27 and return ferry travel for a car and up to six passengers starts from just £32. Visitors wanting to stay longer can purchase period return tickets for £34.
