At Cookery School we focus on demystifying cooking, removing jargon and bringing back good home cooking skills at our school in Central London. At Cookery School the atmosphere is fun and informal. We provide the skills necessary to become a confident and independent cook and all our classes have a very high proportion of hands on practice. We use only high quality, sustainable and primarily organic ingredients and are proud to be the only London cookery school awarded the maximum 3 Stars for sustainability from the SRA. With day and evening classes and courses, corporate events and private kitchen hire, there is something for everyone. Winner of "The Best City Cookery School 2013" and runners -up for "Most Sustainable Cookery School 2014" in the UK Cookery School Awards.

Our chef Carolina was easy to learn from, a great teacher and has a great personality! The food was organically sourced and the kitchen was clean. I've never attended a cooking class before but will be back to learn more! Thanks Cookery School for a lovely Saturday evening!

This was my second class at The Cookery School.. this time, 'Winter Comforts'. It certainly delivered! The chef, Carolina, was really knowledgeable about the food and methodology behind the food and cooking. She was also really funny and had everyone at ease during the class. No matter your skill level you will be able to participate. When you walk in... More

We arranged a corporate event with the team at the cookery school. From start to finish the team were a delight to work with and everything ran seamlessly. The event was a great success and we have had such fantastic feedback. The chefs were fantastic at getting the participants involved and teaching them new skills.

Nine of us turned up on time and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It was very well organised and everyone thought it was a lovely idea for my wife's birthday. Chef Lucy did a wonderful job of keeping us all organised and on track and Olga was excellent whisking things away and washing up almost before we'd put things down.... More

We held a corporate outing at the Cookery School in January 2017. We think it was our best outing yet, and we plan team-building events all the time! We had about 23 employees participate in a cooking competition. We chose the Italian menu because we thought tortellini, lamb, and profiteroles with chocolate would be good choices. We were right! After... More

I attended the knife skills course in December and can definitely recommend it to everyone. The staff and instructor were brilliant - the course itself has helped improve my preparation skills, giving me the confidence to attempt creating a wider range of dishes. The course is very enjoyable, relaxed and having the opportunity to sample the results of our work... More

I was given this session as a birthday present and was appalled at the course. All we did for 4 hours was chop vegetables and I learnt nothing. If you want to know how to chop an onion then this is the place for you, but if you have any aspirations about flavours, or anything remotely exciting that you may... More

This is the 2nd year running we have been to The Cookery School for our team Christmas work do. There were 19 of us this year and everyone had such a great time. It really is well worth doing. You'll leave stuffed to the brim with delicious food and with a few new cookery skills up your sleeve too! Excellent!
