Nigel holds these exclusive classes in his very own cookery school kitchen so you can enjoy the pleasure of cooking in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. All the equipment we use is similar to what you will find in domestic kitchens up and down the country so whatever you learn you can recreate in your own home.
We limit our class size to a maximum of 8 so it doesn't matter whether you're an accomplished cook or can only switch on a kettle, we have the time to teach everyone some new skills and give you the individual attention you deserve.
All our courses, whether it be a half day session or a full day course with lunch, are fully hands-on and at the end of the class you can take your dishes to enjoy at home.
As our classes are very small they book up very quickly. Book online now to guarantee your place.
With the exception of our Kids Cookery Course you must be over 16 to participate at The Academy. Don't forget to bring your camera if you would like us to take photos of you while you work. Our classes are designed to be friendly and fun so leave your nerves at home and unleash your creative tendancies!
You are welcome to wear whatever clothing you feel comfortable in, however, please remember that our courses are hands-on in the kitchen so if you're the kind of person who eats and wears their dinner then your best white t-shirt is probably not a great idea! Additionally, sharp knives and open toes are not a great match so sensible footwear is ideal as we will not accept liability for bodily injury or damaged clothing - although we do have a box of sticky plasters for any little accidents!
It is your responsibility to let us know in advance of any allergies, intolerances, disabilities, epilepsy, pregnancy or you are vegetarian. Unfortunately, none of our courses are suitable for vegans. It is possible to make minor changes to your individual course content as long as we are aware of your circumstances
