Six alternative cookery schools

18 January 2012, 8.32 am

Here is a bunch of cookery schools that we’ve stumbled upon in the course of our duties at Looking to Cook but haven’t had a chance to properly check out yet. We think they look rather interesting. And as such they’re on our radar.

Have you been to any of them? tell us about your experience in the comments box below.

Fresh from 77

A Hampshire based catering company that runs its own one-to-one mobile cookery school. If the food’s as good as the website’s pictures then this business knows how to deliver.

Cookaway Food Breaks

Gain confidence in the kitchen and learn to cook to a budget on of these culinary retreats in a smart barn in Herefordshire on the Welsh Borders.

Clare’s Cuisine

A personalised cookery teaching service in a country cottage in Hampshire with a great looking ‘shop-front’ website.

Wholefood Heaven

Vegetarian catering specialists who run popular vegan and raw food workshops in Camden, North London.

Occombe Farm

From sausages to bread making, simple, fun and affordable cookery classes in the Devon countryside.

Marmalade Cookery School

We love this culinary outfit located in Swansea for its name and retro-styled website. It also offers bespoke cookery lessons at the Monkey Cafe or in the comfort of your home.

  1. Please be careful before recommending Marmalade. Whether they are any good is impossible to say but reliability is not their forte. I booked a taster course as a gift for my father. The location was in St Clears around 30 miles from Swansea. He turned up but Marmalade did not. They had cancelled the course. When I complained the attitude was simply to say they had already arranged reimbursement of the course. No mention of the 60 mile round trip wasted and disappointment. No offer to replace the course. Nothing. It’s a shame really – it could be a great little business but needs to care more about its customers.

  2. Nonny’s Kitchen offers Asian cookery courses in Hampshire, specialising in Thai cuisine. We provided private cookery lessons for individuals or groups. We also run scheduled classes each week and cooking demonstrations for corporate events.

    Our cookery courses are suitable for all levels from beginners to experts. Our sessions are not run by professional chefs, but by an experienced cook who has a passion for cooking. We will teach you the cookery skills you need and do everything from scratch. This will give you the confidence to cook by yourself after the lessons.
