We were delighted to win the award for Best City Cookery School in the UK Cookery School of the Year Awards in 2013.

We strive for a warm and welcoming atmosphere here at Cookery School and everyone is encouraged to leave us feeling enabled and having had a good experience.

We believe that home cooking skills can be brought into the 21st century. Our teaching and easy to follow recipes have already helped thousands of people that thought that they could not cook, realise that they can and have set them on a path of enjoyable and proficient home cooking. We provide a range of different classes that cover basic cooking skills through to more complex ones as well as a large range of regional classes from around the globe.

Cookery School was originally started in response to a university student who was unable to find a place on a cookery course and ever since we have catered for a range of ages and people of different abilities always with the main thrust of making cooking accessible to them. Our oldest pupil was 84 and our youngest 5!

“ .. Cookery School, in Central London, where Rosalind Rathouse and her team are resourceful, enthusiastic about all the right things – they are genuine champions of sustainable cooking and ethical eating – and constantly striving to innovate. This year they introduced a fast track Food and Wine certificate over six weeks, offering an affordable entry point for wannabe chefs.” The UK Cookery School Awards, Looking to Cook.
