Children's Cookery Classes and Cookery Parties
Classes and Clubs
Our after school classes are enjoyed by hundreds of children every week as they develop skills and confidence with food, creating nutritious and exciting dishes from scratch. Our specially created programme has been developed with a variety of school facilities in mind, so whether your school has a fully-fitted food technology suite, or just a room with access to washing up facilities, we have a solution that will fit. And with over 100 different recipes completed (and counting) there is a fantastic variety and something new to look forward to each week.
Our recipe for a successful party is to take all the stress out of the organising - you provide the children, and we’ll provide everything else. At the party, children make their own party lunch or tea. The menu of recipes include a choice of savoury and sweet treats and they will make enough so they can take something home in their party bag too.
We provide one-to-one or small group tuition that is designed to provide a solid foundation for later life by developing key skills in the kitchen.
We run half day themed cookery workshops during the holidays please get in touch for more information.

Cookery classes are available for adults and children. Saturday morning cooking clubs are for children aged 5-16 years where children cook with seasonal ingredients each week and learn new skills and techniques. Recently we have launched of Baby Weaning classes and the new no frills, affordable ‘Real Cooking for Real People’ classes including bread making, family food, pasta and Italian food, classic English biscuits, Thai, Middle Eastern, and Beverley’s monthly Street Food Lunch Club. Beverley also offers one to one and specialist AGA workshops.
Beverley and her team regularly run corporate events from the cookery school base or from external locations such as Legoland, Chessington and the Runway Centre where they’ve cooked underneath Concorde. After school classes and workshops for schools are also available.
As well as being great fun, our cookery classes are also a wonderful way to encourage children’s creativity whilst they learn how to eat in a healthy and varied way. Our experienced ‘Italian Mamas’ will teach their young students how to make classic dishes such as fresh pasta, ragu, potato gnocchi and other delicious Italian dishes using fresh seasonal ingredients.

Location: 118 Marylebone Lane, London W1U 2QF
They may learn bread making, basic butchery, one pot cooking or, for the more ambitious, a complete family meal. Everyone can then sample the fruits of their labours with their own families.
Our courses may also include farm visits, planting and harvesting in the castle's own vegetable garden and looking after our own pigs and free-range chickens.
Courses are tailored to the ages and needs of participants and are intended as residential courses for the whole family.
