'I heard about Sara Ward and Hen Corner through Chiswick Out & About magazine and thought I would sign up for one of her cooking courses, after enjoying creating a recipe she provided for the magazine. I was not disappointed - what an absolutely fantastic day I had! The day started at 10am with Sara warmly greeting us to her lovely house in West London. Delicious coffee and homemade biscuits were served (baked by Sara that morning) before we got started at learning how to mix, knead and prove our organic dough for baking and prepare our Seville oranges for marmalade making. We spent the day in Sara's pretty conservatory overlooking her garden, admiring the chickens as we kneaded our dough and prepared the oranges. In between there was lots of lovely coffee and inspirational chat with Sara and the other course attendees about all sorts of things, mainly organic! In between various stages, we were treated to a delicious lunch of homemade soup and organic bread (yes baked that morning too!) along with divine homemade green tomato & chilli chutney and delicious cheese. Later we were further treated to organic homemade chilli & chocolate cake equally divine! Taking time in good company to create delicious bread & marmalade I found not only instructive and fun but incredibly therapeutic in our otherwise busy daily lives and Sara sent us all home with a goodie bag crammed with a pot of marmalade beautifully wrapped, our perfect cooked organic loaf and an extra treat of some eggs from her lovely chickens at Hen Corner! I shared the bread with my family that evening - all said how delicious it was and the toast with marmalade the following morning was just ... well absolutely sublime! Will definitely be booking on to the preserving course in the Autumn! Many thanks Sara - you are an inspirational lady!' 5 Stars - Justine, January '14
When & Where
Sara Ward, Hen Corner
‘Since moving into her West London home a few years ago, Sara Ward and her husband Andy have industriously set up Hen Corner, where they now have a stunning kitchen garden – with raised beds full of seasonal crops – fruit and nut trees, a flock of clucking hens and a beehive with busy bees hard at work making honey.’ Michele Jameson, Country Living Magazine
We are Hen Corner.
We love the bee keepers, the veggie bed diggers, the jam makers and cider drinkers, the chicken fanciers and the real bread bakers.
But not just in the deepest darkest countryside or the far, far away villages but right here in our cities and towns.
So, come on a course and join us on the journey…
