Who we are
Cookery School’s approach to food is simple, modern and imaginative. We love sharing our ideas for delicious home-cooking and are constantly finding fresh sources of inspiration to bring to our classes, through our menus and our suppliers.
At Cookery School the atmosphere is fun and informal. We provide the skills necessary to become a confident and independent cook and all our classes have a very high proportion of hands on practice.
There is always plenty of opportunity to ask questions and gain understanding of supposedly demanding techniques. Every session involves tasting all the food that has been made, further enhancing your ability to become a skilled home cook.
Take a look at the Enfield rugby team as they learn how to cook a perfect stew; Steve, Wez and Richard – “men who love food but are scared to cook” – learn how to make bolognese, lamb tagine and chicken cacciatore.
Cookery School’s principal, Rosalind Rathouse, is obsessed with food. She has worked as a professional cook, run her own cookery business and taught cookery to both adults and children for many years. She feels very strongly that proper teaching can enthuse even the most unconfident cook by demystifying cookery techniques and jargon.
