Expert Led Cookery Courses

Multi-session courses for beginners and experts

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.



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

We have teamed up with the Soil Association to host an evening on Monday 29th April from 6pm-8.30pm exploring how so many people, businesses and communities are managing to grow fresh fruit and vegetables in central London in public spaces, gardens, on window sills and roof-top gardens.

This month’s theme celebrates Plant & Share month which has been running for four years and encourages the nation to grow and share their produce with their community, school, family and friends.
