Our courses are not demonstrations: you will be hosted by our own barbecue chefs Andrew Dickens and Joe Nesbitt-Larking, who will make sure you are “hands-on”, creating delicious food that you can replicate at home. Each 4-hour Barbecue Course is limited to 30 guests and you will use a selection of top-of-the-range gas, electric and charcoal barbecues. The 4-hour Barbecue Course cover grilling, roasting, smoking and baking as well as the use of professional temperature probes to ensure the food is cooked safely and just the way you like it!
You will get to try new and exciting flavours thanks to the introduction of various types of wood smoke and the many rubs and sauces in which Riverside specialises. Our guests will also learn which types of fuel to use for what purpose, how to get the most out of their fuel while controlling the temperatures of their barbecues and, of course, our guests get to eat everything they cook! The menu will always include meat, fish, vegetables and desserts and varies according to the season and theme of the course. Each course will develop your barbecue skills for life. Included in the course is tea, coffee, soft drinks and two beers or glasses of wine, as well as a free “Absolutely Fantastic” Riverside Barbecue School apron. You are free to purchase additional beer, wine or cans of soft drinks throughout the course. Bring a notepad and pen for your own notes, but we will send all the recipes and notes by email directly after the course.
