Course Details

Our Kitchen Skills Classes are a way to master a new skill or perfect one that needs a little help! The best way to improve you cookery and your diet is to improve your basic skills. If you can chop quickly and safely dishes take far less time to prepare and are less daunting. Successful pastry and bread making skills are essential if you want to cook your own rather than relying on shop bought goods. Even with the best cookery book nothing can compare to learning hands on and with our classes you will have an experienced chef to show you the tips and tricks of the trade.

There are 5 Kitchen Skills Classes to choose from: Knife Skills, Stocks and Sauces, Cooking with Grains, Pastry Making and Bread Making. Each class costs £65 and you can book them separately. If you book all five classes you will receive a 20% discount.
