Cookery School’s aim is to take people back to honest, homely, delicious cooking. There is nothing cheffy or fancy about the food – it is simply delicious home-made food, using common utensils that can be found in most home kitchens.
The focus is on demystifying cooking techniques, removing jargon and bringing back solid cooking skills, using high quality, primarily organic, sustainable ingredients.
At Cookery School it has always been about the food. It is not about using famous chefs but rather using the best teachers who understand the Cookery School way of teaching and make learning how to cook good food with confidence as accessible as possible.
Even prior to the inception of Cookery School, the school’s founder, Rosalind, has been fervently passionate about sustainability. Cookery School has the highest possible rating for sustainability from the Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA) and has been virtually plastic-free since the beginning.
Sustainability is not just a buzzword but runs through the veins of the school, from sourcing top quality, seasonal, mostly organic ingredients, to running the kitchens on renewable energy, the school does everything possible to minimise its impact on the planet.
