Learning how to cook yourself a tasty and nutritious meal has to be one of the most valuable lessons a young person could ever learn. So tell Mum and Dad to sit down and relax as you will be able to cook them a first class dinner after this class!

Techniques you will learn:

Allow one of our resident chefs to carefully guide you through the do’s and dont’s of meat preparation, basic knife skills, boiling and blanching, health and safety in the kitchen.

Wayne Clarke and Simon Chappelow are both resident chefs at Leeds Cookery School and between them have over 35 years of professional experience as chefs and teachers.


Full recipes, including ingredients and method, are provided for you to take home to add to your repertoire so you can keep on cooking them time and time again.

  • Homemade Chicken Kiev
  • Buttered Herby Potatoes
  • Broccoli with Lemon and Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

What you can take home:

There is a tasting session after each class where you have the chance to sample the tutor’s version of each dish.

Please note that you do not need to bring any equipment or ingredients with you as this will be provided by the cookery school and is included in the cost. You will however need to bring a couple of sizeable (minimum 1L) food storage containers to take your food home in.
