Des & Amy in Kitchen

Hello & Welcome!

Des & Amy opened their cookery school to share their love of food, cooking and learning.  

Have fun, make new friends and enjoy exploring your creativity in our friendly classes, which cater for the beginner to the more experienced cooks amongst you!  Check out our reviews to see why people enjoy our classes so much.  We offer options for adults, teenagers and children, and you can choose from one-off classes or longer courses which take place over a four to six-week period.  You can also gift this experience to a loved one with our popular gift vouchers!

The majority of classes are taught by Des, who trained under Albert & Michel Roux and the renowned Anton Edelman before spending two years working with Masterchef’s John Torode.
