Christmas comes early…
We know, we know. It’s feels a little early, but trust us. One minute you’re barbecuing or packing the beach towels, the next it’s back to school. Before you’ve taken breath there are pumpkins and suddenly you’re facing two paydays before Christmas and you’ve done no planning at all.
So we’re planting the seed of an idea a little early. Whether it’s a gift voucher or Auntie Annie, or something for the budding chef in the family, we’ve got a cookery course for you.
So grab a brew, settle down and let us do the hard work for you.
Buying for a Twosome? Try Cooking Together
If you know a couple who love to cook for others, or if you’re a parent and want a treat for you and yours, this might just fit the bill. Think of it as dining out with a plot twist. Your loved one and a partner in crime cook a three course dinner with our expert chef, and then they sit down to eat it with each other – and the rest of the class. Learn cooking tips and tricks, and of course, the recipes – so they can then show off those kitchen skills when they make the dishes at home.
Mini MasterChef in the house? Big & Little Cooks
Give the gift of skills for life. Working as a team, big cook and little cook will prepare three dishes with our Chef – main, side dish and pud – which they’ll then share afterwards. It’s an ideal way to spend time with your child (or niece or nephew for that matter), and they learn life skills that will be important in years to come – long before you pack them off to University. Oh, and don’t worry, if there’s got more than one, extra children are just £25.
They’re not a Foodie, but love a brew? Coffee Lovers
Now you could pick this one if your partner’s brew making skills aren’t up to scratch. Or maybe they do really have a thing for caffeine, we couldn’t possibly say. But whether you’re buying for a novice or a budding barista, our expert Gavin has fifteen years of brewing under his belt, so you know he has a safe pair of hands. Gavin covers everything from the different styles of coffee, to all the techniques you can use to perfect a brew at home. Also perfect if they were gifted coffee brewing kit last year, and still don’t know what to do with it, as Gavin will be able to give them advice specifically tailored to their needs.
Are they a bit of a gym bunny? Or gluten intolerant? Then our Fit Food Sessions are ideal
Fit Food might sound like one for the Personal Trainer, or fitness lover in your world, and you’d be right. However, our fit food expert, Jan Cron, also cooks without gluten, so this also works beautifully if you know someone who has been diagnosed as gluten intolerant. Jan has a whole series of styles, try Italian style fit food, vegan, or even something a little spicy with Indian flavours. They’ll cook alongside Jan, then enjoy the flavours they’ve created alongside their classmates (or they can take it away). It can be tailored to vegetarian and vegan diets too, so everybody can enjoy fit food every day.
Well-travelled, or just love exploring with their taste buds? Then our Thai, Vietnamese, Sri Lankan, or Indian Flavours are a winner
Your loved one can explore the world from the comfort of the kitchen, with one of our world cookery sessions. Let our chefs teach them how to blend spices to turn up the heat at home, or enjoy one of our cook along sessions, where they’ll can eat as they go. You can make a real event of it, and book two places, one for you too – after all, you did the hard work of finding the perfect gift.
Want to give them something that keeps on giving? Our skills courses are exactly what you want
We really do have a little bit of everything. With our skills courses, they’ll learn those essential knife skills and slice and dice like a chef. Learn to make pasta like a Nonna, or to make their own bread at home. We’ve even got courses on cheese making if they like a little Stilton on your crackers at Christmas. Whichever you choose, these really are gifts that live on in the kitchen at home.
Still Stuck? We do vouchers too!
Of course, if you can’t decide, then make it easy on yourself and let them choose with our gift vouchers. Let them decide if they fancy updating their kitchen skills, getting spicy with one of our world cookery adventures, or even trying their hand at food photography.
