COOK’S CERTIFICATE – WEEK FOUR

Reflections on week four of Cook’s Certificate by Will P.

Another amazing week on the Cook’s Certificate course passes and it hits me just how fast its gone and how much fun we’ve all been having. Only two weeks left until it finishes and I know I’m going to miss all the cooking, the other students and all the great teachers. One thing I’ve loved about the course is the variety of experts that come in and teach us –

COOK’S CERTIFICATE – WEEK THREE

Reflections on week three of Cook’s Certificate by Will P.

Now the course is well under way, I am getting more used to its intensity, which at first was a bit overwhelming. The sheer amount of what we are learning was initially a bit of a shock, but now we have all settled into it it’s getting clearer just how much I am getting from the course – it’s great to know I’ll have these new skills for life so I can share them with friends,

COOK’S CERTIFICATE – WEEK TWO

Reflections on week two of Cook’s Certificate by Will P.

After the course got off to an amazing start in week one, where we learnt soups and stews, cake making, how to make the perfect roast and how to make amazing salads, I was really excited to be starting week two. I have to say I was very tired after week one and thoroughly needed to catch my breath over the weekend, but now I knew what level of work was expected and I was more used to the pace of learning,

COOK’S CERTIFICATE – WEEK ONE

Reflections on Week One of Cook’s Certificate by Will P.

Following the excitement of Day One (written about in the previous post) I knew there was much to look forward to in the ensuing days. We were told Tuesday would be soups and stews, Wednesday we would learn a variety of roasts and Thursday would be “cake day”. Friday was to be a theory day dedicated to a food hygiene course where we learnt essential and mandatory food hygiene practices.

COOK’S CERTIFICATE – DAY ONE

Day One on the Cook’s Certificate Course by Will P.

I was extremely excited and a little bit nervous about starting this 6 week intensive cooking course; having looked at the syllabus of what will be covered I was amazed at how much I would learn in the coming weeks. I don’t have plans on becoming a professional chef, I just thought doing the course would be time very well spent as it would equip me with cooking skills I would have for the rest of my life.

We’ve had a makeover!

Some of you have been asking why we’ve changed colour! So here’s a bit about why we’ve rebranded…

CSLOGO_WHITE_PRINT

We’ve gone green! In fact, we’ve always been “green” here at Cookery School but we now have a brand new look to reflect this. Since we started Cookery School we’ve always tried to be as sustainable as possible even before it was ‘cool’ to be so.
