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.

Saffron, one of the most famous and valuable of spices, has a very fascinating history. 🏺Originating in Greece where it was valued for its medicinal properties, saffron is a powerful antioxidant.
It flavours food across the world. Superb in the risotto we had last Saturday and in traditional Swedish saffron buns in December!
We just love it! 😋❤

The risotto was 😋

Our fully booked Prosecco Celebration night was such a wonderful opportunity for us to welcome our new house Prosecco: the Treviso DOC Sene’ 2018!

Made from 100% Glera grapes and manually harvested, this Prosecco has real personality and is the perfect accompaniment for any meal. Slightly sweet, fresh, pleasant and easy to drink. Perfect for hot and sunny days!

Oh Gail - how boring our days -and evenings -would be without you!!! Thank you for being such a regular and for bringing your unique style and sense of humour

Can confirm that it is delicious and easy to drink!

Food is not 'just food' and dinner is not 'only food'. At Cambridge Cookery we know that.
Food is culture and identity, what we cook is what we are. It's a way to preserve cultural traditions. Food keeps us connected, eating together we build relationships and share memories, we learn to care and respect, we learn diplomacy, we learn empathy. Food is about community and about creating values in a community.
Prosecco celebration was a fantastic excuse to celebrate all that. Thank you for sharing your Saturday night with us and see you soon! •
