Kitchen Confidence Cookery Courses

Whether you've recently  completed our Kitchen Basics series or just want to jump right in at a higher level, this advanced cooking course steps things up a gear on the cooking front.

Designed to give our students confidence in the kitchen, this course has taught aspiring cooks of all ages, from teens and university students to pensioners who finally have time to dedicate to mastering more advanced cookery skills.

It may be that you can recreate a recipe and put on a dinner party, but you long to tackle expert techniques and build on your existing knowledge. You’ll cover indulgent desserts and bold side dishes that will compliment impressive mains and make for epic menus.

Learn pasta making, knife skills, seafood preparation, how to make soufflés and conquer different pastry forms. You’ll know what expert cuisine looks and tastes like and walk away with the confidence to tackle any dish, big or small.
