Can thoroughly recommend food at 52 for an instructive, entertaining and fun class with a great atmosphere. Can't wait to do make a second visit and experience another of their wide... More

Book the place for my friend's birthday - we are 7 girls so it turned out to be a great night. The teacher Val is lovely, she got us a Vietnamese dinner menu and we had so much fun learning and cooking them! Can't wait for another amazing experience soon with Val!

A fun evening in a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere. This well thought out venue had everything for your comfort. Come comfortably dressed and enjoy the quirky furniture and décor. Drink some wine and then be prepared to learn how to cook the dinner yourself. Chef showed us step by step and we cooked a delicious Italian meal worthy of any restaurant.... More

We did the Vietnamese Cooking class, and right from the start you knew it was going to be fun. From interesting ingredients, booming funny instructions and a good crowd of people. We shared the cooking with another couple opposite us. The mix of teaching, doing and just chatting with some wine was just perfect. We learned some stuff, but it... More

My partner and I took this Thai class, and it exceeded our expectations. It works on so many levels; social, creative, picking up tips, learning some cooking fundamentals, and of course, learning some new dishes. We used good quality ingredients (important to me) and the wine was free-flowing (also important to me!). I can see this even working for any... More

Took our 30 year old Son for the Thai Cooking Course as a surprise birthday present. All of us despite the age differences could not fault the experience. A lovely friendly, educational, relaxing, fun, and informative day. Rachel, Val and the team made it an incredibly enjoyable and memorable day. Made friends, laughed lots and got to make and eat...

My husband and I took the Italian cousine class last last weekend at Food at 52. We both thoroughly enjoyed it. The course covered simple and basic but crucial cooking techniques as well as advanced cooking. Our instructors Val and Rachel was great, so was the other attendees. It was a lovely Saturday with full of cooking, eating and drinking.... More
