Summer Knife Skills


Skills Day

We call it our Cookery Spa Day – a bit of ‘you time’ to learn some new skills whilst you spend a day preparing some of our favourite recipes. A huge topic that we could spend months teaching, on this course we will start from the beginning with fruit, vegetable and herb knife skills, chicken jointing and round fish filleting.

How the day goes….

Arrive at 10 am for some of Aj’s breakfast treats before donning your apron 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 a bottle of bubbles and enjoy one of your dishes for lunch.

After lunch, we will finish cooking and assembling all of your delectable food before finishing around 3:30 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.
