From preparing your oven to getting the correct temperature and generating smoke - this episode holds all you need to know about creating delicious smoked dishes. About Manna From Devon: Established in 2005, the Manna from Devon Cooking School and Bed and Breakfast is run by Holly and David Jones. They teach cooking skills to small groups in the relaxed environment of our Victorian home overlooking the beautiful River Dart in South Devon. They also have two beautiful bed and breakfast rooms. Holly and David believe that cooking should be free of stress or anxiety, and structure courses to emphasise hands-on practice of good, basic culinary techniques rather than slavishly following a particular recipe. In this way they hope to impart to their students the confidence to cook intuitively, to trust their senses, and to have fun while doing so!
