    This five day intensive cooking course is perfect for teenagers on summer holidays wanting to gain confidence in the kitchen. You will learn the essential basics of cooking and walk away with a large amount of varied, easy and enjoyable recipes that can be enjoyed every night of the week.

    Arrive daily to a Cookery School breakfast of freshly baked morning goods and hot chocolate, tea or coffee to set you up for a good cooking session. Each day at lunch time you will sit down around the Cookery School table to enjoy tasting the dishes that you have made. Every afternoon there will be activities – from cooking challenges to tasting tours of our favourite London food places, such as Soho and Chinatown.

    You are promised a most memorable week but, best of all, you will leave us filled with the confidence that you can cook well for yourself and replicate the dishes that you have learnt at home.
