Hands-on Cookery & Meal

You’ll enjoy 75% practical hands-on cookery, learning to make a recipe of your choice, all taught by our team of professional chef tutors. It’s a great chance to learn new culinary skills, enjoy a glass of wine and have some fun!

The event will start with light refreshments, a demonstration and guidance from our professional chef tutors about how to make the recipe, with tips and tricks to help you. The team will then start cooking. You can choose to do this in pairs, and each person gets a workstation to chop, prepare and cook their dish. We then finish the event with a sit-down meal together, enjoying the food the team has cooked. A great chance to relax with a chilled drink or glass of wine, and unwind away from the office.

We have space for up to 14 people for a hands-on cookery session. Prices start from £75 per head.

Cookery Demonstration & Tasters

If you would prefer to get away from the office but not get your hands dirty, we also offer the chance to watch live cookery demonstrations from our professional chef tutors, followed by tasters of what’s been made. We have a large demonstration theatre with overhead mirror so you can see exactly what’s going on and pick up tricks of the trade and learn how to make new recipes.

We start the event with some light refreshments. Enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and a freshly baked biscuit, and then take a seat at our cookery demonstration theatre. Browse your recipe pack to see what’s being cooked, then sit back, relax and enjoy the live demonstrations. We finish the event with tastings of the recipes that have been cooked, and a chance for any questions you might have.

We can accommodate up to 30 people for a cookery demonstration & tasters session. Prices start from £30 per head.

  • Blindfolded Taste Test – Enjoy a tasting sample and guess the dish.
  • Cookery Competition with Prizes – Test everyone’s competitiveness with a prize for the best cooked recipe.
