Smoky Jo’s at the Wild Boar

November 8th, 2010

On Sunday we returned from the Wild Boar Inn, Windermere having completed our first “away fixture”.

It was brilliant!

Smoky Geo and I really enjoyed ourselves – and that tends to be a good sign.  All the participants seemed to have a wonderful time.  It is hard not to have a smile on your face at the Wild Boar – the warm and helpful staff immediately put you at ease and nothing seems too much trouble.  It was important to us that we  worked without getting in the way of the day to day running of the hotel;  I’m sure working around a busy, professional  kitchen we were in the way on occasion but all the staff went out of the way to make it as easy for us as possible, ensuring we could present the course comfortably.

We only have one more course there this year, then one each in February March and April.  If you would like to learn to smoke your own food and have it served to you with a professional flourish at a four star inn in the Lake District, look no further…
