Tucked away down one of Devon’s winding country lanes and overlooking seemingly endless fields lies the unique Cornish Delicacies, where you can experience farmhouse cooking and a rustic cottage getaway
Vicky Yeo has spent most of her career in the catering industry – in France, Cornwall and London – and in 2000 returned to her home town of Launceston to open a deli. The endeavour evolved into providing outside catering services for foodies in nearby holiday accommodation as well as cooking restaurant-style in homes.
Vicky’s much-admired culinary clout landed her the role of go-to woman for friends and family wanting the low-down on cooking tips, recipes and techniques. Her response? To set up Cornish Delicacies cookery school.
Still a newbie on the South West cookery school scene, Vicky’s venture is a hidden gem waiting to be discovered. Dinner parties, sustainability, fave local dishes, seafood, sauces and student basics are just a taste of the topics covered.
It’s also a school with a difference: staying true to its rural location, the courses are an intimate affair, taking place in the farmhouse kitchen with a maximum of four people at a time.
There’s lots of one-to-one attention from Vicky and her colleague so it’s an opportunity to truly hone your skills. Homegrown herbs and veg feature in dishes that’ll delight your friends and family once you’re home. And if that Devon sunshine makes an appearance you can relish the results of all your hard work in the lush outdoor space.
After gastronomic greatness has been achieved and stomachs are sated, sleep it off in the wooden-floored, beamed holiday cottage and complete your gourmet getaway in rustic luxury.
