Our longer 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. They have been carefully designed to help you develop all the skills and confidence required to become a competent cook, capable of dealing with all culinary situations, and of course, producing delicious food.

Here is what to expect on our longer courses:

  • Small and informal classes. 6 students maximum
  • Course starts at 10am and ends around 4pm
  • 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
  • Recipes Folders provided
  • Aprons and all equipment provided

You just need to bring yourself and a good appetite!

After the initial booking we will contact you to confirm the booking and then be back in contact in good time before the course starts to confirm all the arrangements.
