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; how to make a good sponge cake; how to make fluffy, buttery mash and roast potatoes, al dente pasta; how to cook steak, make a decent Bolognese and a whole Roast chicken. We also make a quick but delicious crumble.

We cook green beans to perfection and make a simple salad dressing, ie a Vinaigrette, for a green salad.

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 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.

This class starts 30 min earlier than other classes as we pack in rather a lot for this class. We suggest you arrive refreshed by a cup or tea or coffee and a light snack, as dinner is not served until after 9pm. We work at pace, but expect no previous knowledge from guests!

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