A Taste of Cornwall


Family Chef Day

Our family cooking days are all about enabling the family to get together, cook together and learn together. A family cooking day at Truro School Cookery gives a ‘Big Chef’ and a ‘Little Chef’ the opportunity to spend the day together cooking up a fabulous Cornish feast to take home. If you just can’t agree between a beach or a book shop then we have just the thing for you both to enjoy!

Light as air scones with jam and clotted cream

A proper Cornish pasty

How the day goes….

Arrive at 10 am for some of Aj’s breakfast treats before donning your aprons and gathering around our large teaching island. Your cookery teacher will then demonstrate the first dish of the day, with overhead cameras capturing the finer details. Then it’s time for some hands-on cooking, as you head to your fully-equipped cooking bay where trays of pre-prepared ingredients will be waiting. Cooking will commence, with your teacher pausing the class at convenient times to demonstrate a new technique or the next dish.

Around 1 pm we will pop open some fizz for the ‘Big Chefs’ and some bubbles for the “Little Chefs’ while you enjoy one of your dishes for lunch.

After lunch, assemble all of your Cornish classics before finishing around 2 pm.

Drinks and snacks are provided throughout the day as well as aprons, tea towels and recipe cards. We also provide takeaway boxes, however, please feel free to help us reduce packaging waste by bringing your own reusable containers.
