Cambridge Cookery is an award-winning cookery school and neighbourhood bistro & café.

History

Cambridge Cookery was founded as Cambridge Cookery School in 2008 by chef and food writer Tine Roche. In 2010 chef Elizabeth Young joined Tine as business partner and head chef. In 2015 Cambridge Cookery School expanded and took over the former Rattee and Kett printing warehouse on Purbeck Road, Cambridge, opening a bistro and café. In 2017, the business was relaunched as Cambridge Cookery, comprising both the school and the bistro-café.

Culinary Experiences

Since 2008, Cambridge Cookery School has been running award winning cookery courses covering a broad range of culinary traditions and cuisines. Our passionate team of experienced and friendly chefs offer inspiring and enjoyable classes for every age and level of cook, in our stunning, contemporary kitchen. We offer high quality Culinary Trips, giving participants an insight into regions we are highly familiar with, working with suppliers and producers with whom we’ve built strong relationships. We are approved Duke of Edinburgh course providers, offer school holiday classes for budding young chefs, and ‘Cook for Uni’ classes for those about to leave the nest. We work with prestigious chalet companies providing training for Chalet Chefs. Our cookery school operates from a large, contemporary kitchen, brilliantly equipped with the best quality equipment, and using only the finest ingredients. We offer great corporate team activities, regularly welcome hen and birthday party groups, and offer private dining and outside catering services, tailoring our service for each event.

Bistro & Café

Since 2015, Cambridge Cookery has been welcoming customers into its relaxing neighbourhood bistro & café. The bistro & café uses the finest, locally sourced, sustainable ingredients. Our dishes are lovingly handmade, with a strong Scandinavian and Italian influence, by our team of passionate, highly trained and experienced chefs. Cambridge Cookery Bistro & Café is a neighbourhood meeting place, a relaxing hub of seriously good food, coffee and wine, handmade and selected from the finest suppliers. Join us Tuesday – Sunday for breakfast, brunch, lunch and all day coffee and handmade pastries and cakes, and in our relaxing wine bar and restaurant, where we serve a weekly changing set-menu, on Saturday evenings.

Ethos

We believe in slow food, sustainable ingredients and know all of our suppliers well. Everything we serve is handmade on our premises. We’re also big dog fans and welcome your furry friends into our café!
