A day at Davonport Interiors at Aga Cookery School!

So what a lovely day Jane and I have had today. Sitting in THE most beautiful Kitchen show room, Davonport Interiors #swoon – I thought I’d gone to heaven! My dream kitchen was right there and do you know what I’ll do my best to get it – one of these days ;-). At Davonport they understand the importance of your kitchen and the crucial role it plays in day to day life. It forms the background for a lifetime of memories and it’s for this reason they believe your kitchen should be designed specifically for you; tailored to meet your individual needs and suit your personal style and taste. The best kitchen is the one that reflects the life you lead; at Davonport this is their priority.

Their approach means that every kitchen they make is truly bespoke. All their kitchen cabinets and other furniture is  custom-built, handmade in there workshops on the Essex and Suffolk border (I got a sneaky peak behind the scenes) , where their skilled craftsmen apply their decades of experience in exquisite bespoke interiors and kitchens. Using only the highest quality raw materials, every piece of furniture Davonport produces is made to an exacting standard and finish. I shall dream on…. in the meantime go check them out by following the link above!

So what happened when we got there? Well a lovely chap called Mark who runs a cookery school called The Cooking Experience   greeted us with a wonderful baked breakfast – all in one tin – in the Aga! Now that’s true easypeasylemonsqueezy style! and it was delicious (late up so skipped breakfast – naughty easypeasylemonsqueezy)  Marks ethos ‘ the inspirational relaxed way to cook’ and yes it was relaxed and we had so much fun and very hands on, check out his site if you fancy a few courses!

And then the food kept coming. I don’t have an Aga and my experience is limited, somewhat an Aga virgin I guess and it all seemed a bit scary. But boy I learnt a lot,  I learnt some really cool and easy stuff, so much so I now WANT an Aga too ha ha! I’ll be posting some of Marks lovely recipes soon so stayed tuned.

So off we went …..

First up an easy toastie – and this baking paper – wipeable, this is now on my shopping list (no Aga required) How easy to make a toastie? Straight on the plate!
