Teaching you techniques and crucial knife skills to reduce any unnecessary waste, this class will greatly improve your efficiency and grow your confidence in the kitchen whether preparing a meal for one or the whole family.

Course Overview

  • Please arrive 15 minutes before the class begins for refreshments and registration to ensure the class begins on time.

  • Cookery classes include a mixture of hands on cooking and demonstrations to help you get the most out of your time with us.

  • Take a break in the middle of the day to enjoy the dishes you have made thus far, before going back into the school for the rest of your course. At the end of the class, you will again be seated around the Chef's Table to enjoy the further dishes you have created, accompanied with a refreshment to reward your hard work.

  • Any food that you have created that you do not wish to eat on the day can be packaged up for you to take home with you. We will provide you with containers to take food home and bags to carry them in, however in the interest of sustainability we encourage you to bring your own from home.

  • Take home your new found knowledge and skills from the class, along with The Kitchen Apron and Recipe Pack as a souvenir of your time at the cookery school!
