Cookery Schools

Our Cookery School sessions are available for anyone to book, and are held in the well-appointed training kitchens at Chorlton High School, Parrs Wood High School, Flixton Girls’ High School and Prestwich Art College.

Our classes are fully participatory and hold a maximum of 14 people, with everyone sitting down together to eat what they’ve made. We promote locally sourced, seasonal ingredients & cover a wide range of tastes and cuisines: from authentic world dishes to Breadmaking, Pastamaking, Raw food & Foraging etc.  Recipe sheets are given at the end of the session.
