Adventure Gourmet

Adventure Gourmet offers rare master classes where, within a relaxed, intimate teaching environment, chefs at the top of their game share their secrets on a range of relevant topics, from how to create time-honoured recipes to honing complex cooking techniques.

Watch as world-class chefs, some household names, turn their expertise and experience to a number of themes, including world cuisine, making the most out of seasonal produce, cooking with spices and the heights and delights of pastry.

These monthly, half-day sessions followed by a 2-course lunch take place at Café Spice Namaste’s Pradhan Room.

Adventure Gourmet is perfect for professional chefs and would-be chefs or any food lover who wishes to cook and learn from some of the best talents in the industry, including Michelin-starred chef-restaurateurs and executive chefs. Our confirmed chef line up includes Cyrus Todiwala OBE, Brian Turner CBE, Ben Tisch, Simon Hulstone, John Feeney, Francesco Mazzei, and John Williams MBE.

Discounts available to Umbrella Apprentices.
