Brompton Cookery School AKA Marcus Bean’s new gaff!

Earlier this month I was invited to the launch of the lovely Marcus Bean’s new cookery school and B&B – Brompton Cookery School and Bed and Breakfast. It is a beautiful farm conversion nestled into the stunning Shropshire countryside, with bed and breakfast accommodation, state of the art cookery school, kitchen gardens and incredible views across the surrounding National Trust estate. Of course, all this made so much better by Marcus Bean and his beautiful family at the helm, after recently purchasing the business.

The launch party was a great way to get a taste of the cookery school, along with delicious canapés and bubbles too! Marcus and one of his chefs, David Parker, talked us through the canapés and did a series of mini food demos throughout the evening.

The school has room for up to 16 students, with 4 large well equipped workstations to work from with a chef demonstration area up at the front. Courses and experiences vary with full and half days, couples, family and children focused cookery, demo and dine evenings, one on one tuition and guest chefs regularly appearing – so there should be something for all ages, experience and budgets!

Robert Swift, who runs the bread courses at the cookery school, was there with an incredible selection of breads to sample and happily to take home too!

We were treated to a grand tour of the beautiful Brompton House, which provides bed and breakfast accommodation. With stunning bedrooms, furnished and decorated to an exceptional standard, overlooking the gorgeous countryside, a beautiful lounge and breakfast room for guests and the warm welcome from Marcus and his family, this is the perfect place to stay, whether you are taking a course or not.

I hope you will join me in congratulating Marcus and his family on their purchase of the Brompton Cookery School and wish him all the luck for the future. I know I can’t wait to go on a course!

  1. Very best of luck with the new venture and if you need a ‘total foodie’ video company for any courses on DVD or to promote your business online we’d love to be involved … and see / taste what sounds like fabulous dishes!
