We report on how Yorkshire chef Michaela Hanna has launched a series of food and activity retreats in the back of beyond.

Former MasterChef The Professional contestant Michaela Hanna is combining her two great loves – cooking and Yorkshire – with the launch of an exciting new business, With M.
Alongside learning how to cook delicious food, Michaela’s countryside retreats offer an immersive getaway experience with activities such as cycling, running and walking, all guided by professional coaches.
Based in North Yorkshire, With M also offers private and group cooking lessons, bespoke events and retreats, corporate away days, masterclasses and demonstrations.
Michaela launched With M last year having seen the potential to bring her love of cooking and outdoor activities together, and provide guests with the ultimate active gourmet getaway.
Her innovative experiences provide a range of escapes in beautiful, secluded locations across the Yorkshire Dales, allowing guests to truly switch off and get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life, whilst enjoying some of their favourite activities alongside a delicious culinary journey.
Throughout 2022, Michaela will be running her gourmet food and activity retreats, where she cooks delicious meals for guests and provides cooking demonstrations that guests can make requests for when booking their place. Michaela said: “I want to showcase the beauty and hidden gems of Yorkshire, that even locals don’t always get to experience and allow people to combine their favourite activities with a masterclass in cooking.”
