Simply Summer

...a lovely new collection of very easy, delicious and elegant recipes to enjoy with friends and family over the summer months.

Most of the recipes can be prepared in advance and there will be plenty of tips and shortcuts along the way, with suggestions for presenting them beautifully – all with the aim of making cooking as stress-free and enjoyable as possible, so that you can join in the fun too!

HOW THE MORNING WORKS…The demonstration will start promptly at 10.00am with coffee served from 9.30am onwards (not before!) and last for approximately 2½ - 3 hours. The format is an informal morning when I demonstrate a variety of different recipes. The small size of the group encourages cookery queries that I hope I can answer!

All the food that is cooked is eaten amongst the group and suffices as a light lunch. Everyone will receive a folder of the recipes to take away and (hopefully!) lots of shortcuts, tricks and tips for the future, for both experienced and less confident cooks alike.

If you would prefer to book by telephone please kindly ring Karen or Jane on 01668 215 200 (MONDAY - FRIDAY DURING NORMAL OFFICE HOURS please), with card details.

Demonstration location

Langley Mill

Telephone : 07831 833 778 (on the day)


From Charlbury: Follow signs for Burford (this road takes you past the station on your left). Follow the road for approx 4 miles (ignoring the road on the right signed Ascott-under-Wychwood) wiggling down and up the hill, then just after a wiggle and some trees (easy to miss) take the unsigned lane on the right. Go down the lane past a small farm on the left. At the T- junction at the bottom, Langley Mill drive is directly opposite. There is a stone shed with a green tin roof at the beginning of the drive. Go down the drive past a cream house and Langley Mill is at the end.

From Chipping Norton: Head towards Burford. After about 4 miles turn left, signed Ascott-under-Wychwood. Go down and over railway line and turn immediately right into Shipton Road. Wiggle through village past the Swan Pub on your right. Drive on all the way out of the village (round sharp left and right bends). Langley Mill is quarter of a mile out of the village on the right hand side.  There is a stone shed with a green tin roof at the beginning of the drive. Go down the drive past a cream house and Langley Mill is at the end. 

N.B. SAT NAV will take you to the wrong house!
