We are delighted to invite PENNY ZAKO to join our list of AGA demonstrators. Penny is a renowned food writer and restaurant critic, and is known as the ‘AGA QUEEN’ columnist in the popular ‘My Shrewsbury’ magazine.

She develops her own recipes and travels the country teaching people of all ages how to cook. Penny runs hands-on courses at Eckington Manor for AGA enthusiasts.

Her festive recipes reflect the on-trend Nordic style cuisine of ‘honest cooking’ which focuses on pure food, clean flavours, texture and colour all of which are enhanced when cooked in the moist cast iron ovens of the Aga.

The demonstration will be themed for CHRISTMAS ENTERTAINING and Tickets are £30 per person to include AGA tasting after the demonstration.

Below you will find a list of various regular demonstrations that we hold in our lovely showrooms here at Twyford Cookers. Not only do we offer AGA demonstrations on Total Control, Dual Control and the City60 but we also feature a variety of different events showcasing the talents of some of the region’s best cooks. We have several ‘live’ Range cookers here in the showroom from Rangemaster to Mercury and La Cornue. Having such a lovely space here really lends itself to some very interesting, fun and relaxed demonstrations. There really is something for everyone.

'How to use your AGA' Demonstrations


It can be a hugely daunting decision for some and for others there is no other choice. It used to be much easier too… the only choice between models was 2 or 4 oven and the fuel type. Now there is an AGA for every situation and all delivering the very best cooking experience. You will be amazed at the way your food tastes and is cooked… especially you carnivores.

But what if you’ve never cooked on an AGA before? What if you have moved and inherited an AGA cooker? Isn’t it hugely complicated? No… it’s simplicity itself and to prove that to you we run small cooking demos for new AGA owners, and those people who are seriously considering becoming one, in our showrooms here in Leominster. After the demonstration, a member of our sales team will be available to come and talk to you about the various different models and help you come to an informed decision about which AGA will best fit into your life. (Please note these demonstrations are NOT for experienced AGA cooks…you already know what I will be teaching!)

Demonstrations start at 11am and last 2-3 hours. Below is a list of upcoming date
