Whether your family are all foodies, keen cooks or simply enjoy the simple pleasures in life, Manna from Devon Cooking School offers the perfect serve for your Christmas turkey

It may go slightly against tradition but your entire Christmas meal can be prepared this way, adding an essence of the outdoors to your festive day, via this primal-yet-versatile cooking style.

Wood Fired cooking is on fire and your Christmas guests will see why after tasting a variety of traditional side dishes cooked alongside the main turkey. You may even inspire them; it’s easy to understand why people have acquired a taste for the smokey delicacies wood fired ovens produce, and are increasingly opting to install wood fired ovens at home.

Everything can be cooked in these spacious ovens, from sprouts to stuffing, giving you a truly unique, sociable experience. No more Christmas kitchen meltdowns!

Established in 2006, Manna from Devon Cooking School is run by Holly and David Jones who teach cooking skills to small groups in the relaxed environment of their Victorian home, positioned in an area of outstanding natural beauty in Kingswear, South Devon.

The stylishly decorated, homely kitchen and the recently revamped and extended outdoor decking overlook simply stunning views across the Dart estuary to Dartmouth.

Manna run regular cooking courses and they have also released a cookbook to give you some inspiration in your own kitchen.

Commenting on a wood fired Christmas turkey, David enthuses: “Not only is it a dramatic and fun cooking experience but the flavour of the food is exceptional.”

“Many people associate outdoor cooking with the summer but the warmth of the oven keeps you toasty: I can’t think of a more inspiring and enjoyable way to cook, particularly on Christmas Day!”
