Overview

A short ‘n’ sweet version of our One Day Italian Cooking class.

You’ll receive the same attention to detail and personalised tutoring. This is perfect for those who want to learn the basics of Italian cooking in just a few hours.

Start by exploring all the specific fresh herbs used in Italian cuisine, why they are used as well as the significance of seasonal ingredients to create authentic Italian cuisine.

 

This class is entirely hands-on, so you will be rolling up your sleeves and will make your own fresh dishes such as:

  • Fresh Pasta: Learn how to make homemade pasta from scratch using flour, eggs, and a little bit of elbow grease. How to knead and roll the dough and cut it into your desired shape.
  • Red Chilli Pesto: Discover the secrets to making this spicy and flavourful sauce that’s perfect for adding to pasta or spreading on a slice of bread.
  • Sauce Pizzaiola: Master the art of creating this classic tomato-based sauce that’s perfect for topping pasta or pizza. Learn how to balance the flavours and adjust the seasoning to your liking.
  • Pizza in a Pan: Learn how to make a delicious and crispy pizza in a pan without needing a pizza stone or a wood-fired oven. You’ll start by making the dough from scratch and then adding your favourite toppings before baking it to perfection.

No previous cooking knowledge is needed, just a desire to cook and learn! We will include alternative recipes for any dietary needs.

Our half-day Italian cooking class is suitable for vegetarians, vegans and those with gluten intolerance. Check all the range of  Italian Cooking Classes!

Faqs (16)

Can I bring a spectator with me?

I’m afraid not. All attendees must be paying participants in the class.

I am allergic to certain foods/ I have a special dietary requirement. Will this cause a problem?

We try our best to accommodate for special dietary requirements. Please notify us of your dietary requirements within 24 hours of booking. Please email us cook@thecookingacademy.co.uk or call us on 01923 778880 if you would like to know whether your allergy can be accommodated on a particular course at least 28 days prior to the class. It is the customer’s responsibility to inform us of any dietary requirements at the time of booking for your health and well being.

Do you have facilities to purchase equipment on the day?

You will be able to purchase a good selection of equipment that you use in our classes, as well as a variety of spices.

I am an experienced cook, are all the courses suitable for me?

All courses are suitable for all levels as the classes are based more specifically on the cuisine rather than skill. The Chef will ensure that you have the assistance required to enjoy the day and really develop your cooking skills. If you are an experienced cook, you may particularly enjoy our Advanced classes. Please contact us if you would like further guidance.

I can’t handle spicy food; will your classes be too hot for me?

In our cookery classes, you get to make your own food to suit your own palate, so although we provide guidelines, you can adapt each recipe to suit your taste, as spicy or as not spicy as you’d like.

I’m a complete beginner, what class should I do?

Our cookery classes are not based on skill as such; they are all hands on and taught by an expert chef who can lead you through the cooking processes so even a beginner should be fine on our classes. However, if you want to start at the very beginning, and develop an understanding of food hygiene, knife skills and safety in the kitchen, our beginner’s cookery class would be the one for you.

I’m gluten intolerant, what classes can I attend?

Our Indian, Thai, and Nutritional classes can be easily altered and tailored to suit a gluten free diet. Please just ensure you make us aware of this at the time of booking.

If I purchase this cookery class voucher can the recipient exchange it for another class of their preference?

Yes, vouchers can be exchange for other classes, if there is a short-fall in the value, they can pay the difference. If the voucher is for a greater amount they will be able to make purchases on the day to use up the full value of the voucher. Alternatively, you can purchase an open voucher that can be redeemed against any class of the equivalent value.

Is lunch provided in this class?

Yes, lunch is provided (and cooked by you!). If you have any special dietary requirement please make those known to us at the time of your booking.

Is there anything I need to bring to the class?

Yes, you will need to bring some Tupperware/plastic containers (quantity will be specified in your booking confirmation letter sent via email) with you to take home some of the delicious recipes you will cook on the day. This will also be highlighted in your booking confirmation letter. Everything else, including an apron will be provided.

Is there parking available on site?

Yes, there is ample car parking available on site – free of charge.

What is the minimum age to attend a class?

Anyone from the age of 13+ can attend our cookery classes, if you’re not sure which class would be best please do call us on 01923 778880 so we can help.

What should I wear/take with me to the course?

Please wear comfortable clothes and comfortable shoes (no flip-flops or open toed shoes). We will provide you with everything you need for the day, all we ask for you to bring are tupperware containers.

Will I eat the food I make?

There will be an opportunity to eat all the dishes that you make. All participants sit down together for lunch to enjoy the food they have made in the morning, and will be able to take home the food you make in the afternoon to share with family or friends.

Will I have food left over to take home with me?

Yes! On most of our classes, you will be able to take a selection of the delicious food you have made home with you. This does not apply to the half day Indian class.

Will I have my own cooker and cook my own recipes?

Yes, you will be cooking on your own hob and will be making the recipes individually tailored to your personal palate and preference.
