You’re never too old to learn a new cuisine

As we get older our diet becomes more important, not just from a health point of view but also because we have more time to enjoy preparing and eating good food.

At The Cooking Academy, we firmly believe that you’re never too old to learn and embrace a new skill or cuisine.

Our expert chefs teach small groups in a relaxed environment. Whether you want to learn to cook, master a new cuisine, add to your repertoire or rekindle an interest in cookery our friendly classes tick all of the boxes. The recipes we teach are nutritionally rich, look visually appealing and taste divine. With no more than 6-8 people per class – delegates receive plenty of personal one to one attention and encouragement from our tutors and enjoy a convivial day in the company of like-minded people.

We supply everything that you need for your cookery experience from aprons to ingredients. Our team of kitchen staff pre-prepare all of the necessary ingredients leaving you free to concentrate on cooking the dishes. We believe that the best way to learn is by cooking rather than watching thus each class is designed to be a fully hands on experience.

We all have to eat and cooking is such a great way to bring people together. Our recipes are designed to be straight forward to follow and we always use top quality ethically sourced ingredients. Whether you choose one of our half day or full day classes you will be guaranteed a wonderful experience peppered with useful hints and tips, a full recipe pack and plenty of delicious food to take home. The day will include a fabulous lunch, cooked by yourself, accompanied by a glass of wine or two! There’s no need for any washing up either as our delightful kitchen assistants take care of all of the clearing up as if by magic.

If all this sounds too tempting to resist why not also consider treating a friend or family member to one of our classes- it makes for an unforgettable gift. Class vouchers start from as little as £25.00 and we offer a comprehensive range of cuisines including fish cookery, introduction to cookery, Italian, Spanish, Thai and Indian to name but a few.  The vouchers make an ideal gift to anyone for any occasion.

All of our cookery classes are based at our main venue “Silverwood”, London Road, Rickmansworth, Herts, WD3 1JR.

Contact us today and enjoy giving and receiving the joy of cooking with The Cooking Academy.
