Cookery Classes in London

London Cookery Schools Index

If you’re looking to find out about the wide variety of cookery classes available in the capital then you have come to the right place!

After setting myself the new year’s resolution to “learn new cookery skills” back in 2013 I’ve been testing out as many cookery schools in London as possible.

Here you will find an index of London cookery schools along with links to my reviews if I’ve already attended a class.

You’ll find a rough guide to prices per person for a variety of classes so you can find something that fits your budget. I do my best to keep these prices up to date but it is possible they are out of date so rely on them at your own risk, I will not accept any liability!

Alternatively if you run a cookery school and would like to be included on the list just drop me an email using the contact form.

If you book onto a class I’d love to hear how you get on. Good luck and happy cooking!
