This two-day advanced cookery course will fire up your imagination and help you to become a better cook by taking your culinary skills to the next level. You’ll learn to cook and present dishes to a fine dining standard with new techniques and recipes that will give you creative confidence in the kitchen.
Our chefs come with a wealth of knowledge and experience, and they can help you to create exciting menus full of mouth-watering dishes that are guaranteed to wow at your next dinner party. The first day will be devoted to savoury dishes and the second day you will concentrate on desserts.
All courses are taught by our chefs, Jake Pinn and David Frear. Our school is positioned in Abinger Hammer, a delightful and picturesque village in the heart of the Surrey Hills. The school provides each student with a fully equipped kitchen and all necessary ingredients and equipment. We believe in hands-on, practical teaching – so be prepared to roll up your sleeves!
