Our Kitchen Classics classes focus on skills which underpin and inform successful cooking and which are essential – as well as hugely rewarding – for any home cook with ambitions to reach further than everyday cooking with its hits and misses.

Learning how to handle a knife safely and efficiently is one of the most fundamental and useful skills in the kitchen. This hands-on class will take you through which types of knives to use for different tasks, what is worth paying for (and not) and how to sharpen. You will learn how to dice and slice various vegetables to create juliennes, batons and mire-poix as well as how to cross-chop and chiffonade herbs. We then move on to jointing whole, free-range chicken, and proceed to make, cook and sit down to enjoy with a few glasses of wine:

Summer Rolls 

Chicken stock

Tom Yum soup

Filled chicken breast with Tarragon sauce

Pomegranate Chicken salad

You will leave with best part of a jointed, organic chicken as well as some of the vegetables you prepared.

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 limited parking on site. We recommend the multi storey at the Leisure Centre less than 10min walk away or the Babraham Park & Ride which stops on Hills Road, very close to Purbeck Rd.
