Teaching you is our pleasure

The ethos of Flora’s Kitchen courses is to learn useful new culinary skills in a fun environment by getting involved in anything and everything – you will learn by doing the work. Students of all ages will leave with the confidence to try new dishes, happy in the knowledge they will taste great.

On the University Basics course students will learn how to cook competently on a budget. Skills taught will be highly adaptable to create a multitude of easy-to-make dishes which taste delicious, at times impress, but don’t break the bank.

The Chalet and Villa Cookery course is more intense, aimed at those already equipped with the basics but hoping to hone their skills further. It is a five-day residential course teaching the additional techniques needed for entertaining and catering for large groups.

Flora’s Kitchen also offers a miscellany of other fun cooking courses such as Man Enough To Cook or Junior Cooking but anyone wanting to organise a customised course must simply

    If none of the courses listed cover what you'd like to learn in the kitchen, then we can always design a course specifically to suit you. Perhaps you'd like to organise a private course for a group of friends, family or work colleagues or one-to-one teaching?
    We also love a party, so if you are planning to celebrate a birthday, or indeed any occasion, we’d love to share it with you.
