Waitrose Cookery School

Region:  •  Type: , ,  •  Cost:

Basic ingredients: Based above  the handsome Art Deco Waitrose store in Finchley Road, the first Waitrose cookery school has ash blonde wooden floors and is kitted out with John Lewis gear and stacks of Le Creuset pots and pans. It has a large eating/relaxing area with a bar and shelves of cookery books. The kitchen has 12 individual stations, each with its own fridge, oven, hob and Joseph Joseph colour coded chopping boards. There’s space for 24 students per course – with demos in a hi-tech theatre. Day and evening courses proving popular so far include Michelin star, Thai, knife skills, and cocktail making.

They say: We have a strong team of professional chefs several of whom have worked in Michelin-starred kitchens. We want to inspire people to move from just watching cookery programmes to actually cooking and experimenting with ingredients.

We say: As you might expect from Waitrose, this new cookery school raises the bar. The taught courses follow a “demo – taste – cook – taste again” formula that works well. Strong on seafood and fish courses. The school at Finchley Road remains the flagship, but check out Waitrose’s new cookery schools in Salisbury and at London’s King’s Cross.

  1. I would love to book a suitable course for my son’s birthday it is such a pity the only way I seem to be able to view the courses is to go into each separate day. this is time consuming Is it possible to have an overview of all the courses.

    Yesterday I attended a Persian feast cookery course. Our tutor was Leyli. I have come back completely inspired and ready to cook all the amazing dishes we made under her guidance. Thank you Waitrose Cookery School and thanks so much to Leyli.
    A great day and fun too!
