Cornish Foodie Getaway

Cornish Foodie Getaway

Learn new culinary skills, fall in love with artisan ingredients and sample the best flavours of the south west with our weekend Cornish Foodie Getaway.

Discover the taste of Cornwall and brush up on your culinary skills with our ultimate Cornish Foodie Getaway weekends. The Alverton Hotel have teamed up with Truro School Cookery to encourage creativity in the kitchen. Whether you love fine dining or trying your hand at a new skill, this city break experience will leave you with a flavour for excellent Cornish cuisine. Your stay will include:


One or two nights at our four-star hotel in the heart of Truro for two people

Hearty Cornish breakfasts each morning of your stay

A choice of one of Truro School Cookery's courses (a five minute walk from The Alverton!)

Add a three-course meal for you to sample our head chef Simon's mouth-watering menu - an extra £50 for you both, giving you each an allocation of £35 towards the menu


Each weekend the cookery courses have an exciting, flavour-packed theme:

Fridays from 7pm - 9.30pm are 'FRIDAY NIGHT IS...' classes - an engaging dining experience where you can learn a new dish (pad thai, lobster, or banging burgers to name a few) before settling down to an evening of social dining and drinks (our break for two people including this course is from £143 for one night or from £232 for two nights)

Saturdays from 10am - 3pm are all about 'FEASTS FOR FOUR' - an interactive day where you will whip up a show-stopping three or four course meal, ready to store (we'll take care of this for you!) and take home when you check out (our break for two people including this course is from £235 for one night or from £324 for two nights)

Saturdays from 10am - 4pm it's time to improve your culinary skills with an ultimate 'SKILLS DAY' - taught by former Rick Stein sous chef AJ Turner alongside Maria Taylor in an informal, hands-on and creative environment (our break for two people including this course is from £251 for one night or from £340 for two nights)

A treat to take home: Why not add a Cornish hamper full of goodies to take home, prepared for you by AJ and Maria at Truro School Cookery?

Tea for two? Or upgrade your stay to include our Alverton afternoon tea for £30 - take to the terrace and tuck in.
