Owner description: Much more than a cookery school, this is a full-on culinary experience. Come join us in the kitchen for an amazing feast that you cook. Bring your own group or meet new cuisine-savvy friends as the wine flows and the kitchen heats up. The perfect alternative to another boring London attraction.

“cookery experience”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

I had a great cooking experience learning new skills on the Spanish Tapas course. The other attendees were a great crowd, fun and made me feel part of the team. The whole evening feels like a total experience not just a cooking class. The recipes were easy to make (with John's instructions), the ingredients were top quality, the wine abundant, the conversation flowed. I'd definately do it again.

“Flavours of Italy 28th June”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

What a perfect way to spend a day. Learning, doing, making, and finally eating the feast you have made yourself. I can't imagine a better cookery course, and we we would like to thank John, Josie, and the whole team for making it such a special day. We will definitely be back for more lessons in other cuisines, and hope there evolves a Flavours of Italy 2 course in future.

This is fun, friendly and thoroughly recommended

“Excellent venue - not your typical corporate venue”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Attend a corporate away day her with a small group of ten colleagues. We were able to use the upstairs space for some work in the morning. There were sofas and two areas we could work in and the team were happy for us to bring along things (boring stuff like flip charts etc).

Then we headed downstairs where we spend a few hours cooking delicious Spanish lunch and drinking plenty of wine. John was patient, helpful and encouraging. The instructions were simple and you really could get as involved as you wanted to be. Learnt some new skills and enjoyed doing something sociable with colleagues.

Kitchen was a great space - really felt like you were in someone's house. None of the stainless steel soulless work space I have seen elsewhere.

Overall an excellent day - good space, lovely food, great people running it.

“FLAVOURS OF ITALY”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

Today has been amazing. I had a fabulous day at Food at 52. Location was excellent and easy to find. This course is excellent. John the tutor was superb throughout the day along with Josie and not to forget the lady who we saw washing many pots and pans up throughout the time we were there. The morning was started off with a lovely pot of coffee. Introductions made and everyone was so, so friendly. New cuisine and skills taught (good to be able to use these new skills at home - especially how to use a knife properly). Wine started flowing at 11.30ish yum. By the time we looked at the clock it was soon time to come home, went so quick there. Would thoroughly recommend this course and definitely be going back soon. Thanks again for a fab day Jo and Aren x
