Learn new recipes online

While we were waiting for the restrictions to relax enough for us to restart our range of Cookery workshops and courses, our chefs have been having a go at filming cookery demonstrations at home. So, if you fancy trying out a new recipe or learning a new skill, have a look at the films made by Renee and Ali and Alex. You can view recipes online or download them as pdfs – we will be adding more to the website in the coming weeks.

We are on the lookout for tutors to expand the range of classes we have on offer. If you are interested, please send a brief overview of what you’d like to teach and a little bit of background about you to
