I attended the demo and dine steak night with a friend and this was the first time I had been at the Cook School. I believe the steak night is the only demo and dine night where you do a small bit of cooking (you cook your own steak, the chefs cook everything else) so it is slightly more expensive but do not be put off by the price of any of the nights, I found this one great value for money.
The night was run by chefs Bernie and Mikey, they were informative, funny and really interesting. You can see their love for food and cooking and they offer tips and suggestions as they go along and also encourage questions.
We all met in the dining area then moved through to the demonstration kitchen where we all sat around the chefs' work station. They talked through how to cook chicken wings and ribs and we got plates of these to eat (5 chicken wings and 4 HUGE ribs). They also demonstrated 3 different kinds of sauces, some vegetable accompaniments, the steak itself and dessert. We then moved to the work stations to cook our own steak following their instructions while Bernie and Mikey went round with some of the accompaniments to put on our plates. Once the steaks were cooked we all moved through to the dining room to eat. Dessert was served afterwards.
The food was fabulous!! Really good quality fillet steak which would cost you £25-30 in a restaurant (without accompaniments in some!), two starters, choice of sauces, 3 veg accompaniments and dessert. You also get around 4 drinks (red/white/rose wine, beer, orange juice or water. You can also buy more drinks once those included in the price are done, some people bought bottles of wine.) and you keep your apron and are given a copy of the recipes for the dishes demonstrated. All for £55.
You could go to these nights on your own, as a couple or as a group and it is really sociable, everyone eats together so even if you are on your own you won't feel awkward. The evening started at 6pm and I think we left around 9.15pm.
It's a good idea for a 'different' kind of night out and I will definitely be back!
p.s. their cook book is also great!
