Kick-start kitchen confidence

Designed for complete novices in the kitchen, as well as those who cook but crave a more solid basis. The class is a little longer than our standard classes, and puts in place key skills and an understanding of how essential cooking works. Don’t be ashamed to admit this course is for you even if you have cooked for decades – many of us end up in a rut and feel that we lack essential skills to underpin our activities in the kitchen. This class is informative, friendly, fun and utterly hands on.

We cover eggs, such as perfect 5 second scramble and fool proof poached eggs; we make a super simple but fool proof sponge cake;  fluffy, buttery mash; perfect rice and al dente pasta; we move on to how to cook steak, make a decent Bolognese, a Green Thai Curry made from scratch and a seriously good crumble with custard.

The class culminates with a sit-down meal with wine and, as usual, guests leave with full recipe packs as well as full stomachs.

We are aware that this is quite a long class, which comes at the end of the working day for most guests so we recommend that you do not arrive starving, even if we start with some of the egg dishes, so as not to flag half way through!

We are found at the very end of Purbeck Road (off Hills Rd by the sixth form centre) where you turn left by Abbey college and then carry straight on for about 60m to the white awnings you will see ahead.

Please note that there is some parking on site during evenings.
