We firmly believe that great cooking isn’t about recipes, it’s about techniques and you’ll work together with other students in a fun, hands-on environment led by our professional chef instructors. In every class, you will get hands-on experience throughout the class. For some dishes the chefs will have done some of the prep for you so that you can maximise your hands-on time with cooking and learning
We don’t give you a recipe print out during the class, as we want you enjoy the experience rather than simply following a recipe. We will email you the recipe pack after the class. Our chefs are always happy to answer any questions during and after the class.
At the end of your cookery experience, you can retire to the dining room to enjoy the fruits of your labour with a glass of wine/ soft drink. The class includes time to sit down and enjoy your culinary creations. However if you do wish to take any food that you have cooked home with you, please bring suitable containers. Please note – we are unable to accept any responsibility/liability for food taken out of the cookery school.
Full Day Class 10am-4pm
Please arrive 10 mins prior to the commencement of the class. On arrival you will be directed to our coffee lounge where you can meet the chef and chat about the class.
Please wear comfortable clothing and closed toe, non-slip footwear. An apron will be provided for you to use during the class.
See below for feedback from a previous Confidence for Beginners class:
“Was on the beginner’s course this weekend. Wasn’t sure what it was going to cover. Haven’t cooked a meal in thirty years of marriage – so really was a novice.Well what a fantastic day! Couldn’t believe how much we covered in four hours. The chef was excellent making it all seem so easy. Tonight I told my wife I would prepare the dessert. She nearly dropped dead with shock when I produced poached pear (fanned) and a red wine sauce. Life is not going to be the same again!!! Thanks to the school-fantastic!”
