The River Cottage Cooking Diploma
Collection of 12 courses
River Cottage's Head Gardener, Adam Crofts, takes you behind the scenes at the River Cottage garden and teaches you how to create your own kitchen garden, make your own fertiliser and grow veg, fruit and herbs to cook with all year round.
At River Cottage we believe growing your own veg has the power to change your life. In these times of intensive farming, reliance on harmful pesticides and the detrimental effect it has on our environment, we now more than ever need to be more reliant on locally grown and sustainable food systems.
From propagation and tools, which veg varieties to grow and how to nurture them, you'll learn a range of skills and techniques focusing on organic vegetable growing.
Once you’ve got to grips with growing your veggies, Gelf Alderson (Executive Chef at River Cottage) will show you how you can get them from plot to plate. Using your home-grown produce, you will learn a range of skills and techniques so that you can fully embrace all kinds of veg in your cooking.
This course has been approved by the Independent Cookery Schools Association (ICSA), recognising the highest standards of training.
Every student is different but in general we think the whole course will take around 14 hours 10 minutes to complete including:
Your lesson notes will include the full details of the ingredients you'll need for cooking, and you'll need standard kitchen equipment. Adam will also be teaching you practical gardening projects, so you'll need some seeds to grow and seed trays, and if you want to have a go at making your own fertiliser you'll need kitchen scraps, a bucket, muslin cloth, sieve, metal bowl, a brick, hessian, pestle and mortar, jars, a box or crate, and scales.
Just add the course to your basket above - choose the 'Expert' option for personal feedback from Adam on your vegetable gardening assignments.
