"Thank you - I had a wonderful day, really enjoyable, very friendly, making learning very easy and interesting. The class has given me lots of ideas for both simple evening dinners but also dinner parties. Its really opened up a whole new style of cooking for me. Brilliant - highly recommended" Steen Riisberg
"I recently attended your one day Indian cookery class and I wanted to let you how much I enjoyed it. I had to say I didn't quite know what to expect but the whole day was enjoyable, friendly group and teacher, very approachable (I had loads of questions - I've obviously been doing wrong so far). Most impressive was the spice trail and the knowledge of the teacher, and the information was relayed in such a practical way so that we can act on it. I've been to India and I have to say the most authentic food outside of India - thanks for keeping it real! Good luck" Nick Timms
"Hi Kumud, Thanks again for a lovely day yesterday, I have to say I don't often rave about things, so Lindsay - my wife was surprised and pleased as it was her gift to me, that I came back so enthused by the day. I have surprised myself with how much I got out of the day and how much I am looking forward to re creating the dishes. Well done! You have a gift!" Don Booth
"Even when I follow a recipe it doesn't work out, so having hand on experience was a great way to learn to cook. I actually found it very relaxing and good fun! I'd go again to get some more recipes!" Rupen Chudasama
"I gave the cokery class to my husband with trepidation but I was over the moon to see how much he enjoyed it and was motivated to come home and cook - he wants to come back for the advanced class." Kerry Castello
"A Brilliant cookery class - completely hands on, thorough explanations and great pace all day. Couldn't have been more enjoyable. Thank you" Judith Wootton

The Home of Cookery - The Cooking Academy

The Cooking Academy is dedicated to teaching people, in a fun and enjoyable way, how to prepare and cook delicious and nutritious food. We place great emphasis on creating tasty and flavoursome dishes for every occasion and for every level of cookery.

Cooking Classes That Cross Continents

In each of our cookery classes we take you on a culinary journey that crosses continents. Our extensive range of classes transcends boundaries and encompasses a huge range of tastes, textures, flavours and sensations. In our classes you'll learn to cook using all of your senses, creating dishes that are exciting to the mind, joyful to the palette and satisfying to the soul.

From Beginner to Advanced

We teach people regardless of ability: from those that don’t know how to fry an egg through to some of the UK’s top chefs, we offer courses that are ideal for you. Our fundamental principle is that our cookery classes are small (max 6 people), entirely hands on, so that you can easily recreate the dishes at home in your own environment.

We dispel the myth that cooking is complicated by making it fun and practical with lots of helpful hints and tips about food management, storage, knife skills and practical shopping.

Whether you choose a one to one method of learning or group classes the experience will be entirely practical, no jargon or knowledge assumed with printed and electronic notes and recipes; we provide all the ingredients and equipment.

Just as important, it’ll be fun enjoyable and very tasty!
