Manna from Devon

Specialities

The first thing that demands your attention when arriving at David and Holly Jones’s idyllic Dartmouth-based cooking school is the brace of pizza ovens standing tall on the terrace. Who isn’t mesmerised by the prospect of cooking with wood at frighteningly hot temperatures? It’s not just about pizza, either; Manna’s students learn to master other styles of wood-oven cooking, such as bread baking and roasting – all delivered in a easygoing, down-to-earth atmosphere. There are cuisine-specific courses that include southern Indian and Asian street food, family courses for holiday bonding, and classes that focus on cooking fish, as seems appropriate for a cookery school with a vertiginous panorama of the Dart estuary. The school has two B&B rooms on site for anyone  who wants to make a break of it and, perhaps uniquely for a British cookery school, Manna from Devon also runs classes in Spain, which sounds like as good an excuse to visit the Sierra Nevada as any.

Wood-fired oven cooking: £175
Wood-fired pizza and flatbreads: £150
Artisan bread-making weekend: £275
Fabulous fish: £165
