Cookery School at Little Portland Street is one of London’s leading cooking schools. With a focus on sustainability and education, we endeavour to demystify cooking, removing jargon and celebrating good home cooking skills. Our kitchen is run with the environment in mind, so we only use high quality, sustainable, primarily organic ingredients and equipment that can be found in most home kitchens.



At Cookery School it has always been about the food. It is not about using famous chefs but rather using the best teachers who understand the Cookery School way of teaching and make learning how to cook good food with confidence as accessible as possible. We feel very strongly that proper cookery teaching can enthuse even the most unconfident cook.

We offer a wide range of day and evening cooking classes and courses here at Cookery School, and with over 20 years of experience we know how to enable students to make honest, homely, delicious food. Teaching classic, simple home cooking has been our ethos from the start and remains one of our main principles today.

There is always plenty of opportunity to ask questions in every cookery class and every session involves tasting all the food that has been made, further enhancing your ability to become a skilled home cook.

We can adapt many of our classes to suit special dietary requirements, so if you are gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian, vegan, or halal, please let us know and we will do our best to provide alternatives.

As London’s most sustainable cooking school, we are dedicated to a sustainable approach in all that we do. Even prior to the inception of Cookery School, the school’s founder, Rosalind, has been fervently passionate about sustainability. Sustainability is not just a buzzword but runs through the veins of Cookery School, from sourcing top quality, seasonal, mostly organic ingredients, to running the kitchens on renewable energy, the school does everything possible to minimise its impact on the planet.
