Simply Cooking’ in Harmony House, now in its 10th year, is ideal for a day of learning to master dishes you always wished you could accomplish. Our cookery activity workshops are designed for you to come as a private group of between 4 and 12 persons and you will cook together around a large central island in a homely and relaxed atmosphere. The activity workshops can cover specific themes such as baking pastry and bread making which you will take home, or can be meals in minutes, novice, Curries and Chinese, pasta making and Italian, vegetarian or men’s cookery which you can eat together as a buffet or take home. You can also choose a variety of dishes yourself. Workshops last approximately 3 hours and include all ingredients and light refreshments. 

You can also book a cookery session at Harmony House for a   children’s party, hen or stag day, business away day or work with us and personal development company for a management leadership event.   Home tuition is also available for one to one or groups at a venue of your choice.  

Hilary Finney was trained at the Cordon Bleu School of Cookery in London and has over 30 years’ experience of cooking for others. The kitchen itself is homely yet practical, lending perfectly to Hilary's approach to cooking; the recipes you'll learn can be easily tweaked and adapted to produce stylish food that is deceptively easy to cook for both everyday meals and fine dining at home. 

Harmony House is situated in a small rural village 6 miles south of York where you will find the perfect antidote to City life. You can choose your own date, time, fellow students and dishes to cook. You can either eat the food together in our conservatory or take it home to eat later. Weekday classes only have a minimum of 4 persons and weekends 6 persons. 

Make the most of your cookery day and stay with us in our bed & breakfast then stay on for a day or two and visit the many attractions and festivals in the nearby historic city of York.
