What we do

The Cooking Academy teaches people how to prepare and cook food from around the world in a professional, enthusiastic, creative and enjoyable way.  We are unique in our approach to cookery by putting ingredients and their beneficial health properties at the heart of everything we teach.

We run a wide range of publicly available classes, social events for families and groups of friends.  We also have an extensive corporate client-base for whom we provide team-building events as well as corporate entertainment & hospitality events.

Our cookery school classes are entirely hands-on and taught by expert chefs in a home-from-home kitchen environment.  Our ethos is to explain the chemical composition, Ayurvedic and herbal values of food so that recipes are nutritionally rich, look visually appealing, and taste divine.  Our cookery classes and corporate events will change your perspective of food with a teaching methodology that makes no assumptions of your starting position, but rather takes you by the hand on a journey of discovery, peppered with lots of hints and tips to give a technical understanding of why certain processes are necessary in cooking to broaden your knowledge.

Our recipes are straightforward to replicate at home and we always use fresh, ethically-sourced ingredients.  We work in small groups so that the personal relationship with your chef and your fellow students can add to the richness of the day, whilst ensuring that everyone receives the right amount of one-to-one tutoring and the full attention of the chef taking the class.

We aim to be second to none in our marketplace, where you truly have a wonderful experience as well as learn skills that you can use for many years to come.

Reviews

“The tutor was really knowledgeable about food of every kind. I’ve learnt so much in one day it’s incredible. Thank you for your encouragement and humour – I’ve had a really fun day. Can’t wait to do another day.”  Christine Wagner

“I just wanted to say thanks for a lovely experience today. It has sparked a much-needed bit of inspiration that I have been lacking. The presentation, the information and background and the recipes were all perfect!! I can’t wait to get my spices and start delighting my family and friends.”  Lynn Coleman

“I would like to thank you for a hugely enjoyable and informative day. My family really enjoyed the food I prepared; even my son Arthur who is autistic and very particular about food absolutely loved it. My wife who is pregnant thought the food was amazing. I don’t know if it was my cooking or your expert tuition, probably a bit of both, and thank you for your kind comments regarding my cooking. I’d be very interested to come back for one of your Thai courses and will be giving polite hints to relatives on the approach to Xmas and my birthday. Hope to see you again soon.”  Dave Stern
