Much more than a cookery school, this is a full-on culinary experience. Come join us in the kitchen for an amazing feast that you cook. Bring your own group or meet new cuisine-savvy friends as the wine flows and the kitchen heats up. The perfect alternative to another boring London attraction.

Very sociable, relaxed & informative day. We cooked, chatted, listened, shared ideas then ate our fabulous food and drank plenty of good white white to go with it. John led the class at just the right pace, I felt. Thank you.
