Our short Cookery Courses are a great way to learn new skills and flavour ideas in a fun and relaxed atmosphere at our Perthshire cookery school. They are suitable for all levels, from the complete beginner, to someone who is looking to broaden their culinary repertoire.

Here is what to expect on the one day courses:

  • Small and informal classes.
  • Coffee and Home Baking on arrival.
  • Mixture of demonstrations & practical sessions; we believe that you can’t really get to grips with something unless you get your hands dirty!
  • All ingredients are weighed out for you in advance, giving you more time to spend on cooking.
  • All washing up done
  • A chance to eat your creations with a well deserved glass of wine. Or a light lunch will be provided if we have not cooked a meal.
  • Any dishes not eaten can be taken away - download our Storage & Reheat Guide:

    Storage & Reheat Guide Storage & Reheat Guide (107 KB)

  • A recipe booklet to take home with you.
  • Aprons provided.

We will be in contact with you the week before the course starts and will let you know if you need to bring any containers to take home some of the dishes you have prepared.

The classes make great presents. Please call or email to ask about gift vouchers or you can now buy a voucher online. For more information on any of the one day courses, please do call or email.
