I recently attended the gluten free cooking and baking course at The Cookery School at Little Portland Street. The day was well taught, organised, accessible and not too foodie or aimed at the overly health conscious. The teachers were knowledgable and friendly and the food was delicious. I now have a range of recipes that allow me to meet my own health needs, entertain friends and cook for a young family without cooking different food for each of us. I would highly recommend the course to those wishing to increase their knowledge or just e pedis cd a thoroughly enjoyable day out.

This one-day course delivers all it promises and more. Although I have been cooking curries for more than 40 years this was a real learning experience and at the same time enjoyable. The facilities and staff showed an extremely professional approach in al aspects. Mumud Shah gave the course in an enthusiastic and knowledgeable way which really inspired the group to perform well together. This may seem expensive at first look but it is well worth the price. I attended with my daughter and we both found the experience very worthwhile. Highly recommended.

I have just completed the 6 week cook's course with The Cookery School, and it was superb!

The class is limited to 12 students, with great space for prep etc. Each day you are faced with a unique set of recipes, each revolving around a theme. The classes follow a similar flow day-to-day, with an expert teacher taking you through each session, with other members of the Cookery School team always on hand for advice etc. I felt very secure and in good hands, where the tuition we were receiving was excellent. If there was ever a question, the teacher was always more than happy to fully explain the problem, addressing the entire class, so you really do learn as a group. There is a huge emphasis on sustainability and the importance of sourcing good ingredients, as well as cooking safety and hygiene.

I can't quite begin to explain the vast array of dishes that are prepared, spanning all genres of cooking and from all around the globe! Cakes, roasts, fish, breads, biscuits, chocolate, sweet and savoury sauces, Thai, Mexican, Indian, custards, many different types of pastry - to name a few! My personal favourite being the Middle Eastern themed class.

You are continually assessed as the course proceeds. As an extra, you are set time challenges through the course to get you to a standard that is expected in professional kitchens.

I went from a very inexperienced cook to confidently taking on complex 3 course meals, as well as advanced skills that I could never of dreamed of doing! I learnt a tonne and met some truly awesome people on the course. Huge thanks to Ros, Khalid, Lucy & John for the excellent tuition, as well as all the awesome rest of the team at The Cookery School for everything!!!

Dear Raad, Thank you for your lovely review.

I am sure that your housemates are loving you more than ever. I am thrilled to see how much you are doing as that is the very best way of consolidating what you have learnt. You will soon build up a repertoire of dishes that you will do with ease.

Keep us posted on how your kitchen work experience goes. We also look forward to hearing of your further cooking exploits – you have the makings of a really excellent cook as the passion is there. Just remember to always keep it simple and good.

Best wishes
Rosalind

We organised a corporate evening to celebrate two important birthdays and a retirement. The whole evening was great fun. The cooks amongst us learned some tricks of the trade, and the non-cooks were energised by the joys of making fresh pasta. The whole evening was seamlessly put together allowing enough time for cooking, eating and catching trains home. The wine served was also excellent! Thank you to all involved.
