Welcome to Peppercorn Kitchen

We give you the Peppercorn experience. From the moment you enter the door you are welcome - we offer the flavours of the Middle-East, North-Africa and of the Mediterranean in dishes made with our daily deliveries of fruit and veg. For the sweet of tooth we have towers of giant rosewater meringues, homemade cakes & puddings and freshly brewed coffee all to be enjoyed by our cosy woodburner on those Cornish weather days, or in our terraced garden overlooking the gorgeous Cornish coastline in summer.

Over January 2015 we are running Peppercorn Kitchen Cook School Sessions. In order to do this, we will be closing Peppercorn Kitchen Café, Monday – Thursday (inc), and will be open as usual on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays 10am – 3pm (last food order 2.30pm).

If you’d like to book for any of the Cook School sessions (see below for course details), please telephone Lisa or Jenni on 01736 719584 or e mail us at: contact@peppercornkitchen.co.uk

There’ll be discount of 10% for anyone booking 3 or more sessions. You may also buy Cook school vouchers as a gift for someone if you wish.

And here are the Cook School events for February... February Cook School

Dear lovely folk – Lisa and I had originally planned to offer only demonstrations in February and not to offer the full Cook School morning where we take you through cooking the dish yourselves after you’ve seen the demo – HOWEVER – it seems that many of you would like the full half day Cook School as well as the demo. Therefore we have decided that if you would like it – then you shall have it! If you could let us know if you’d like to book up for the Cook School (which will be 9-30am until 1-00pm ) we shall be delighted to oblige.
