    23 Jul

    At Truro School Cookery we take the safety and welfare of our customers and staff very seriously. Our commitment to safety comes not only from the latest Government guidance but from our wealth of knowledge and experience.

    Coronavirus Safety Measures

    Maria is not only a trained cookery teacher but a qualified Environmental Health Officer with a wealth of experience and background in food and premises safety. Aj was trained to the highest possible standard at Leiths School of Food and Wine in London before spending 5 years working as a leading Chef for Rick Stein at his prestigious Seafood Restaurant in Padstow.

    We hope this helps to reassure our customers that our safety measures go above and beyond what is expected to ensure we keep everyone as safe as possible.

    Our course arrangements
    • All ‘Feast for Four’ courses will be limited to 5 customers who will each have their own kitchen bay for the duration of the day.
    • All ‘Friday Night Is…’ courses will be limited to 5 pairs. Each of these pairs will be happy to sit, eat and work together (reflected in the ticket booking on our website).
    • All ‘Young Chef’ courses will be limited to 10 children working back to back, two to a bay.
    • All ‘Family Chef’ days will be limited to 5 pairs from the same household all working within their own bay.
    • All customers will be seated to ensure 2 metres social distancing at the main demonstration island.
    • Contact details will be taken at the time of booking and we will cooperate fully with the test and trace programme as required.
    • All staff will wear visors at all times
    • Hand sanitising gel will be widely available 
    • The cookery school and all facilities and equipment will be deep cleaned before each course
    • Once each course has started the cookery school will be ‘locked down’ into a bubble for the duration of the course
    • Apart from our ‘Friday Night Is…’ courses, all snacks and refreshments will be individually packaged for service
    • All of our staff will have received specialised training in line with our Coronavirus standard operating procedures
