The Cooking Academy is led by head chef, Richard Mason, who is in his second year here at Lusty Glaze. Richard brings with him a wealth of experience as a food lover and a chef and is passionate about everything he cooks.

Having worked throughout the United Kingdom for the last 17 years Richard has now come back home to Cornwall. Making sure that we are using the very best ingredients, cooking simply and producing maximum flavour in all of our recipes.

His passion for sharing his knowledge and skills to others is what inspired the idea of setting up his own school.


Winter Masterclass

Next Masterclass – Date Coming Soon

This course provides practical and demonstration cookery sessions where you’ll be able to watch our skilled head chef in action and then get hands-on with the cooking yourselves. We’ll provide everything you need for the morning including recipes, ingredients, aprons, teas, coffees and a glass, or two, of wine throughout the session.

At the end of the morning you will get to eat some of the dishes you have cooked and, depending on the course, we may also provide a few extra dishes for lunch.

Please arrive 30 minutes before your course starts to give you a chance to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee, meet the head chef and your classmates.

You’ll be on your feet for most of the morning, so we recommend you wear comfortable shoes.

* This exclusive course only has 12 spaces available to guarantee that you gain some personal and attentive tuition from the chef.

Morning course: 9.30am – 12.30pm
Course capacity: 12 people
Tickets: £50 per person

With so much to see and do here, you might want to spend more than a morning with us. Should you need somewhere to stay, we will be glad to suggest options, including our own beautiful cottage and chalet (subject to availability).

Karen Pyne “Brilliant day. So much fun combined with practical advice and information. Would thoroughly recommend doing this day to experienced cooks or the complete novice.”
