Festive Vegetarian Cookery, from field to fork

After popular demand, our Field to Fork Cookery days (for adults) are back, and this time we're cooking up a festive feast!

Award winning chef and cookery tutor, Jo Ingleby, will be sharing her latest and greatest vegetarian recipes for Christmas. During the day we will harvest a range of organic produce from the fields at The Community Farm which we will transform into light bites for lunch and a main meal which we will share at the end of the course. In addition to learning some tasty new festive recipes, Jo will be teaching knife skills and we'll also be making some edible gifts for you to take away.

We'll spend the day on the beautiful fields at The Community Farm, with views over Chew Valley Lake and in the farm's cosy yurt with log burning fire!

If you're after some inspiration for Christmas dinner and foodie gifts then this is a fantastic opportunity to do just that.

Places are limited to just ten people so make sure to book early to avoid disappointment.


Our Cookery Days are held at The Community Farm, a beautiful Organic farm South of Bristol, over-looking Chew Valley Lake. Click here for a map.

Past feedback

"I've been to three vegetarian cookery courses over the last few years at The Community Farm...The atmosphere throughout the day is lovely, we all share the work and get stuck into lots of recipes...What is really special is going out onto the farm to harvest the food we cook - it makes you really appreciate locally grown produce. Can't wait to come back."    Emma
