Food, glorious food

No guesses for what Tastes Divine specialise in. But what you might not expect is that they aren’t a typical restaurant. What they offer is a bespoke private dining experience in their beautiful Buttercrambe premises – and you can even get involved with the cooking.

Karen Manley set up the company in January 2005, and works alongside her daughter Becky. Together, their family business is the perfect addition to anyone’s event – from weddings to corporate lunches, and everything in between. 

One of Tastes Divine’s most popular services is their Cookery School. Fancy yourself as a bit of an Ainsley Harriott, or the next Nigella? Well, here’s your chance to prove your worth. With both day and evening, and even kids classes, there are fantastic opportunities to create your own delicious and beautiful dishes to take home and show off to your friends and families. Just be warned – you may turn into the resident chef!

Or maybe you’d rather leave the cooking to the professionals and instead enjoy a relaxing and unique private dining experience. There are plenty of options to choose for your bespoke menu – including:


Carpaccio of salmon with a fennel, baby leaf and grapefruit salad 

Mini fish pies with pea soup shots

Parmesan crème brulee with cured meats and pickles


Mushroom risotto served with Parmesan crisps

Melting lamb shanks slow cooked in a rich red wine and mint jus served with garlic mashed potatoes and baby vegetables

Pesto and baby plum tomato risotto served with oven baked salmon and garlic cream drizzle


Basil Pannacotta with white chocolate noodles, lemon curd and pine nut streusel    

‘Eggs and Soldiers’ a.k.a. lemon brulee, mango coulis and shortbread fingers

Chocolate orange tart with chocolate swirl

There are more. Many more. But we’ll have to stop now because our mouths are watering.

Don’t deny it – we know we’ve whet your appetite. So, visit and choose your destiny. Whichever option you pick, you know it’s going to taste divine. #cheeseandbiscuits
