Harts Barn Cookery School is based in the Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire. While the school was opened by Adam Henson in June 2011, the site on which it stands dates back to 1068. Offering a variety of cooking classes, Harts Barn Cookery aims to make cooking knowledge widely available, and believes in the community-building power of social activity around the act of making and enjoying food. Besides cooking events, Harts Barn Cookery organises events, pop-up restaurants, a hire-a-chef service, demonstrations, parties, and large group packages. The Barn has an earth oven and courtyard area for outdoor cooking experiences on location. Harts Barn is home to craftspeople and artists who sell their jewellery, wood carvings, modern art, and vintage homeware in the shops on site. It features a lake, picnic area, and a tea room for those that want to extend their day of cooking beyond the kitchen.
