Teaching classic, simple cooking has been our ethos from the start and remains one of our main principles today. Our courses are designed to give you the tools, skills and confidence to cook at home and in professional kitchens. Learning by principle, you will build upon techniques and topics and use repetition and reinforcement to become a competent cook.

Jazz Reeves with Schnebelhorn



We launched an insightful series of monthly panel events on food around topics that are close to our hearts at Cookery School.

For our most recent event on Monday 20th May – 6pm-8.30pm we bought together a fascinating panel with a wide range of experience in cheesemaking and cheese retailing.

Our panel for the evening included writer & cheese podcaster Jenny Linford whose feature during lockdown was instrumental to the survival of many British producers, Mary Quicke – award winning 4th generational cheesemaker (Quickes was established in 1540) widely considered the Godmother of British cheese and to provide an alternative view on “cheese” there will be tastings from La Fauxmagerie – UK’s first plant based cheese monger & award winning producer of British plant based vegan cheese. Also on the panel were affineur Jazz Reeves from Paxton & Whitfield and cheese buyer Emily Parkinson from Fortnum & Masons.
