Basic ingredients: Expect to find a few Nordic influences in the dishes at this school run by Swedish-born Tine Roche. Located not far from the centre of the university town, the school offers hands-on classes in Italian and French cuisine, as well as bread making, fish cookery and stress-free entertaining. The focus is on simplicity and seasonality and there are courses for kids, students and singles suppers.
They say: Our team of talented professional chefs are passionate about quality ingredients and inspired teaching. Learning how to reduce waste, and shop and cook in a more sustainable and healthy way are central to our approach.
We say: The modern kitchen is very cool and is set in a beautiful garden. It has stylish Finnish kitchenware and room enough for 36 students.
