So why are cookery courses perennially popular? Perhaps because eating is one of the basic pleasures in life. Some of us see food as simply a means to refuel and re-energise, but many of us are real foodies who love nothing better than to sit down and delight in a superb meal, made all the better if it's shared with friends. They actively search out new tastes and flavours, hence why our eclectic range of classes in professional kitchens around the country are so popular - you can literally eat your way around the world!

You don't need have visited China to enjoy noodles and if you've never been to Bangladesh it doesn't stop you loving curry. We love the variety and wealth of fresh ingredients you can now find even in your most standard of supermarkets these days. This means you can pick up some kiffir lime leaves for your tangy Thai curry and buy genuine Italian risotto rice quite easily, so you'll have all the authentic goodies you need to be able to recreate the dishes you learn about on these cookery classes at home.

As for what format these cookery experiences take, it can vary. Some are very hands on with each novice cook being allocated their own workstation to make the dish from scratch during the workshop, others consist of demonstrations where members of the audience will lend a hand at regular intervals, whilst for a few the lesson actually begins outside of the kitchen with a walk around a market, or specialist local shops.

No matter what is on the menu or how the lessons are run, there's always one thing in common - you will get to taste the fruits of your labour. In principle, you will also get to take 'doggy bags' home with you so you can share the flavours and general gorgeous-ness with friends and family, but in reality there is usually very little left apart from crumbs and a few scrapings in the pan!

So whether you fancy learning how to wok up a storm with bamboo shoots, want to impress by baking your own loaves, would love nothing better than to be able to make your own Brie-style cheese, or just want to know how to make a decent three course meal without panicking, we've got the cookery course for you, no matter what your tastebuds are saying. Enrol on one of our lessons today and take your culinary skills to a whole new level where you'll be stacking and drizzling like a Masterchef!
