Cookery classes

See what we get up to in our kitchen
We run a regular programme of cookery classes in the Community Kitchen covering everything from patisserie to fermentation, Indian street food to dim sum, & much more. To be the first to know about future classes, you can sign-up to our email newsletter. See our COVID-19 update here.

Any profits from our cookery classes go towards funding our Community Cookery courses. All classes are ticketed events lasting from 2-4 hrs and typically include a shared meal (often with food to take home as well). Costs for adult class places start from £35 or £20 concessions. View class types above, or see the full listings by date here.

We are always talking to new chefs about future Masterclasses – sign-up to be the first to hear about new chef announcements!

We run a range of cookery courses offering you the opportunity to learn exciting new recipes and techniques, get to grips with cuisines you’ve never attempted before or just brush up on your existing culinary skills. And we work with some of the city’s top chefs, food businesses and cookery teachers who lead our classes with skill, imagination and passion. Above all, our classes are fun and relaxed. All culminate in a sit-down meal around our long dining table to share the food created.
