Adding garnishes like juniper berries and cardamom pods add intriguing fruity, peppery, spicy notes. We serve this drink in our cafés using our organic fig leaf gin, which is hand-crafted and distilled using traditional methods.

Everybody loves a Lazy Brunch and this fun half-day course at the Cookery School lets you enjoy tasting delicious dishes, while learning some great ideas and getting hands-on with new recipes to repeat on many relaxed mornings to come.
Sustainable Seafood is one of our most popular skills based course, allowing our guests to gain a real insight into an area of cookery which can sometimes be a little tricky to master. Even though fish and shellfish are a firm favourite for many on restaurant menus, the preparation and cooking of these delicious, delicate ingredients can be a little intimidating.
Our signature Chef Experience - Skills Masterclass runs every first Sunday of each month, designed to give anyone with an interest in cookery the chance to learn invaluable skills to elevate their cooking to new heights.
There is nothing that feeds our souls more than gathering friends and family around the table, or cooking something satisfying simply for ourselves. Over the year we gather inspiration from our farm and kitchens to share recipes that reflect our commitment to seasonal, nutritious food that is full of flavour.
With parmesan cheese & parsley oil.
Risotto is one of the most comforting foods, especially during colder months. It is worth sourcing the different mushrooms stipulated in this recipe so you get a variety of textures and flavours in every bite. The mushroom purée adds a velvety creaminess while the parsley oil lifts the dish and adds colour.
With braised red onions, pickled chillies, rocket & yoghurt dressing.
This vibrant seasonal dish packs enough flavour to be served as a standalone dish, or would make a great accompaniment to roast chicken or lamb. The pickled chillies give a peppery heat to the dish, balanced by the yogurt dressing.
This creamy tart balances sweet, mellow leeks with the punch of our semi-soft Adlestrop cheese and the decadence of truffles.
This recipe is inspired by a dish served in our cafés. Discover more seasonal recipes and cooking skills at our Cookery School.
This is one of the first dishes we served when Daylesford first opened 20 years ago. The recipe is so popular we also sell pouches of carrot and ginger soup in our farmshops and online. Made in small batches on the farm with organic ingredients, the pouches are ready for customers to take home and gently heat through – easy, convenient and delicious.
This simple yet sophisticated dish would be ideal for a celebratory dinner party or as part of a festive spread. The fresh herb and citrus flavours in the crème fraiche and dressing complement the omega-3 rich salmon beautifully and you can impress your guests by carving slices from the whole side of salmon to serve at the table.
A recipe from our tutors at the Cookery School to celebrate the seasons throughout the year.
The scone-like topping works just as well with stewed cinnamon pears in winter or ripe stone fruit in summer. In the autumn months, chopped apples and blackberries are lovely and you could even swap the almonds for seasonal cobnuts.
Taken from the brilliant cookbook ‘Land and Sea’ by ALEXANDRA DUDLEY this is just the dish for a hearty Meat Free Monday supper.
Fabulous Seasonal Dinner Party Course
"I absolutely loved the Seasonal Dinner Party course. Steve and James were both brilliant - the recipes were delicious and can definitely be tried at home. Their love of food and cooking is infectious! I would definitely do another course."
Great Seasonal Dinner Party day!
"We spent a great day learning how to create a Seasonal Dinner Party along with various tips like knife skills and cooking techniques - James and James and their team were very informative, patient and relaxed and we came away with cookery confidence (and full tummies!)! It was lovely looking round the farm a little too! Thank you everyone!"
The Perfect Evening!
"Excellent evening at the Daylesford Cookery School, where James, Ione and Sophie hosted our family dinner to celebrate Dad’s 60th. Food was fabulous and great to see the chefs prepare it in front of us. Outstanding presentation and flavours, James really facilitated our enjoyment and was very engaging, explaining each dish and the paired wine, he’s a master of his trade. I’d highly recommend the chefs table experience for anyone wanting to celebrate; a very memorable and lovely time. Thanks James, Ione and Sophie."
Can't wait to come back
"I was finally able to do the Artisan Bread Course at Daylesford yesterday and it was so worth the wait!
I can’t believe how much we made, how much we ate and drank and how much we learnt. James is so knowledgeable and I learnt so many new kneading techniques and tips about bread making. Just ordered myself many kilos of their preferred flour and can’t wait to get on with some bread at home.
Honestly I would recommend their courses to anyone. It’s a highly enjoyable day and I can’t wait to book another."
