We are delighted to announce a new range of cooking classes for 2018 at a select number of Hillier Garden Centres.

This flavoursome pickles and preserves class will give you everything you need to know to go home and create a whole range of wonderfully sweet and savoury accompaniments. Perfect for homemade gifts, these will mature with age and will taste even better by Christmas!

No matter your experience, if you’re looking for a fun and informal way to gain some confidence in making your own pickles and preserves, our relaxed and creative classes are the perfect match.

“I am emailing to say how brilliant we thought last night’s summer cooking class was … It was evident that an enormous amount of work had gone into preparing for our arrival – equipment, ingredients, recipes, tastefully laid up table. Nothing had been forgotten.”

– Guest, Hillier Chichester

“It was an absolutely first class evening. I learned a lot and thoroughly enjoyed myself.”
