fire makingYour "Gourmet Bushcraft Event" starts at the farm with a scrumptious breakfast prepared and cooked by The Angel Cookery Academy's Cordon Bleu Chef Zoe Morley.

Cooking for Zoe is the most natural thing in the world and she even dreams about food when she sleeps! Like in your jobs where the only focus is excellence her role as chef can be very demanding, exhausting and incredibly stressful at times but she still loves it as much as the day when she first started 11 years ago.

Cooking is an essential life skill and we can not think of a better way to learn to cook than in a beautiful and inspirational environment using only the best quality, freshest and ripest of seasonal produce which really is at the heart of successfully cooking stunning gourmet food. Zoe aims to give you the opportunity to grasp simple modern day cookery techniques in an exceptionally beautiful and inspirational location and to help you develop a life long passion and appreciation for good food. We would like to share with you the sense of fulfilment that cooking has brought to her life and share some fantastic recipes.

What better way is there to start your Gourmet Bushcraft Day than with freshly filtered coffee in the open air accompanied with a delicious breakfast. Some examples of what's on the gourmet camps morning menu include:-

  • Banana maple porridge with buttered fresh fruit.
  • Homemade Danish pastries.
  • Freshly made crumpets with blackberry butter.
  • Roasted mushrooms with thyme, garlic spinach and poached eggs.
