The cookery school will be headed up by Rob Cottam who joined Chewton Glen in August, working in association with James Martin to deliver bespoke courses and demonstrations.
It will offer 12 professionally equipped cooking stations and groups will be able to harvest ingredients for their classes straight from the greenhouse and garden.
In addition to the cookery school, The Kitchen will also feature a 40-seater informal restaurant, with an open-plan kitchen with pizza oven, chef’s table for private dining and celebrations and an informal lounge with an outside seating area and private parking.
It will also be home to the Chewton Glen bakery that will be producing a range of artisan breads and pastries for hotel guests and visitors.
