Cambridge Cookery is an independent cookery school offering award-winning hands-on culinary experiences led by inspiring and highly experienced chefs in a stunning, contemporary kitchen.

We use the finest, locally sourced, seasonal and sustainable ingredients for our hands-on classes and courses. We teach in small numbers to ensure the best experience and results.

Hands-on for everyone

No matter your level of experience, age or particular area of interest, we are here to share our skills with you! We run classes and courses in a range of culinary traditions and themes, and we always teach in small, intimate groups. Our classes are always very hands-on, and very fun. See the list of classes and courses here.

Team events, entertaining and parties

Treat your team to an unforgettable experience with us or let us arrange a unique Hen Party, birthday party or special occasion get-together. We can create a bespoke, fun and hands-on private class for you, no matter your group size or requirements. Find out about corporate events here, and about hen parties and birthday parties here.

Stunning kitchen

Our top quality kitchen has been described as second-to-none. Equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, your cooking experience will be unrivalled. All our events lead up to a wonderful shared meal served on our trademark Scandinavian tableware and enjoyed with a glass of wine. Cambridge Cookery is an entirely independent cookery school.

Culinary trips

Join us on a culinary trip in one of our homes away from home! The Marche region of Italy; small, beautiful and mountainous with exquisite wines and produce, and Stockholm, where we dive deep into indigenous traditions such as foraging for wild mushrooms, baking in wood fired ovens, and of course, enjoying ‘Fika’!
