Welcome To Good Taste Home Of Peter Sidwell

Peter Sidwell lives and works in the beautiful Lake District, a popular location in the UK for short breaks and family holidays with over 12 million visitors each year. He enjoys re writing the rule book for local produce, reinventing British recipes that are centred around a fantastic ingredient. Peter’s enthusiasm and passion for simply good food is demonstrated in his TV work, restaurant, cookery school, recipes apps, books and magazine features. You may have seen Peter on TV as one of the judges on ITV’s hit series Britain’s Best Bakery and was also the chef presenter of this own successful cookery show Lakes on a Plate on Channel 4 in partnership with Lakeland. His passion for baking has been a continual influence on his food, having learnt to make his first loaf of bread at school aged 14. Peter is right in the mix of British food as he continues to push the boundaries of cooking and baking. He is constantly coming up with fantastic flavour combinations that have not been seen before, all built on a foundation of great baking and cooking techniques.

Birthday present for a friend. Went to a full day Italian cooking class. Absolutely brilliant. Removed the inhibitions about making bread and pasta. Relaxed unpressured atmosphere, lots of opportunity to ask questions and great tips. Oh – and a full tea to take home. We’ll be back!

Attended the spices course back at the beginning of November. Peter not only was a great tutor with lots of patience but big on ideas and and really made us feel welcome. Would without hesitation recommend his courses.
