Cambridge Cookery is an independent cookery school offering hands-on culinary experiences that impart our passion and inspire you to learn to cook great food.

We use seasonal, locally sourced 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 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 – our bespoke team events allow you to come together with your team for a fun, motivational and inspiring session. With exclusive use of our huge, airy state-of-the-art kitchen, there’s plenty of space for you to cook at your own station, amongst your colleagues. We can also arrange a unique Hen Party, birthday party or special occasion get-together 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 huge, airy 5-star hygiene rated kitchen is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment to ensure that your cooking experience will be unrivalled. We have plenty of space for teams to cook together whilst maintaining safe distance. And what’s more, at the end of your session you’ll be able to enjoy the fruits of your labour, or take them home to enjoy later.

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’!

Cooking for young people!

Cambridge Cookery offers a range of courses teaching young people the basics of cooking, as well as instilling a passion for cooking in them. We currently offer our fantastic cooking for university courses, giving students the skills and confidence to cook healthy, delicious food for life. We also offer a shorter, 2-day cooking class for teens. See our full range of classes here.
