Weber Grill Academy
The Chester Fields Grill Academy
Six years ago, when the Weber Grill Academies were launched in collaboration with cookery schools across the U.K. Brian Mellor’s Harthill Cookery School was one of the first to be signed up.
‘I’ve cooked professionally for over 30 years from large scale operations cooking fresh food daily for thousands through to private penthouses where I’ve cooked dinner for two. Weber have opened my eyes to what can be achieved on a grill. I cook outside all year now, smoking, roasting, searing, baking and more on the grills.’
2021 will see Brian in a new location at the picturesque Chester Fields country pub on the outskirts of the heritage city of Chester. Same great grilling tips, stories, barbecue techniques and flavours coupled with an award-winning pub and brilliant Hospitality.
As we get into the grilling there will be the opportunity to pair your favourite tipple with your creations. If you want to linger a little longer, the area is perfect for visiting the Roman city of Chester, its world-famous Zoo, Cheshire Oaks outlet village or a short hop into North Wales.

Brian is the soul of the cookery school and while most of the courses are run by him, he has enlisted the help of some great chefs that he has met throughout his career. Artisan producers, professors of food science, purchasing gurus, nutritionists, farmers, gamekeepers, preserve makers, foragers, horticulturists, chocolatiers and patissiers - they all work to enhance your learning experience and inspire you.
