The previous dessert ‘Posh Nosh’ masterclass in February was a resounding success with a great flurry of artistic expertise. “We all had great fun at this workshop and learnt some new tricks, including myself” said resident chef Richard. “Not least, just how many desserts you could put whisky in, thanks to attendee Bill’s top tips! It was lovely to see how the attendees developed their skills throughout the session to a personalised finish incorporating their individual style and taste.”

Elaine Hayes, Chief Executive of Ferne Animal Sanctuary said, “We’re delighted at how popular our ‘Learn at Ferne’ cookery sessions are becoming. It’s a great opportunity for us to not only get involved with the local community, but also to help raise funds for the vital upkeep of unwanted domestic pets and farm animals, either before re-homing or for their long-term care at Ferne.”
