Redfearns, Cafe, Restaurant, Cook School on South Street, Wincanton

Local chef Geoff Redfearn, having established his quality Thai restaurant in Wincanton, is now taking the next step in his business plan by opening his own Cook School. The programme launches on Wednesday 18th March.

Geoff’s Cook School will offer his students the chance to learn how to cook dishes they have previously enjoyed in his restaurant. Students who sign up for the courses will work in Geoff’s kitchen, under the direction of the man himself.

Moving to Wincanton to open Redfearns, Geoff brought a lot of top end experience with him. He taught in some of London’s top cookery schools before making the move to Wincanton. He was Chef/Director at the Michel Roux Jr Cookery School, part of the BBC’s Saturday Kitchen Studio Complex. Geoff has been in the catering industry for over 30 years, amassing a wealth of experience to share with his students. He’s an accomplished coach, mentor and teacher. For all who are interested in learning how to cook Thai food, the programme will be as follows.

Students will arrive before 7.00pm for a welcome coffee or tea. After a short introduction and demonstration, the students will get hands-on cooking tuition, working in pairs. After the tuition is complete the students will sit down to eat the fruits of their labours, with a complementary glass of wine.
