It’s all about time in the kitchen with this glorious selection of food-inspired lessons. The lucky food-lover will get to choose from two different types of cookery class: a fun and dynamic demonstration where you can sit back and watch a professional chef work their magic to create a mouth-watering dish that you can learn to make at home. The other option is a more practical approach to hands-on cookery lessons. Here you will learn how to add those professional touches to your everyday dishes under the watchful eye of a pro.

Whatever your preference, this selection of cookery classes is sure to ignite your passion for the world of culinary delights!

Cookery Demonstration

Description

Anyone who has watched the professionals whipping up a delicious dish on television and wished that they had the skills to make magic in the kitchen will love the opportunity to learn from a professional with a cookery demonstration. Your day will include demonstrations from a professional chef and plenty of opportunities to ask any questions you may have about how to ensure that every dish you prepare has a little flair. Whether it’s learning the essential skills you need to prepare food perfectly, finding out how to combine flavours and textures to give you the confidence to get creative with your cooking, or just the chance to learn the tricks of the trade from someone in the know.

Upon arrival your experience will typically start with a warm welcome complimented with refreshments. A qualified chef will then provide you with a cookery demonstration in a fun atmosphere where you will witness the cooking of several dishes in the theme of the lesson. Depending on the location, your demonstration will take place in a purpose built cookery school or the more intimate surroundings of a professional's home. You will either get to taste food along the way or sit down to a meal at the end, comprising of the dishes that were cooked in front of you.

Themes will vary throughout the year at each school. To give you a flavour of what's available, themes may include canapes, baking, pastries and desserts, Mediterranean, vegetarian dishes or curries and side dishes. Please check themes and dates on booking.

Hands-on Cookery Class

Description

Whilst some people find cooking enjoyable and therapeutic, there are also those who lack the confidence to throw themselves into preparing a meal without plenty of preparation. This half day cookery lesson is a great chance to learn everything about the essential skills needed to prepare great food, but also to learn everything you could hope to know so that you feel at ease when it comes to tackling a new recipe. A lesson with a professional chef is the perfect opportunity to ask any questions that you might have about the secrets of preparing fool-proof dishes, how to ensure that you aren’t too heavy handed with your seasoning and hints and tips on making fantastic food to impress your family and friends.

After a warm welcome on arrival you will meet your expert cookery teacher who will talk you through the day's programme and what you will be cooking during your lesson. Then it will be your turn to get your apron on and get cooking. At the end you will either be able to sit down and sample what you have made over a relaxed meal with the other attendees or take it away to enjoy later. Depending on the location, your class will take place in a purpose built cookery school, a professional’s home or even the more intimate surroundings of your own home. The exact format varies depending on the cookery school and class chosen.

Themes will vary throughout the year at each school. To give you a flavour of what's available, they may include bread making, baking cakes, Mediterranean, vegetarian dishes, curries or even sushi making. Please check themes and dates on booking.
