Anyone know a good cookery day class in South London?
It would be for a retirement gift, someone is leaving after 35 years and we would like to treat him to a nice cookery class. Style of food not too important, but French, Italian or Thai would be possibilities. It would be good to get a recommnedation. I have done a day course with Waitrose which was good, but thier kitchen is oin Finchley and that is a bit far away from where this person lives. Thanks.
I know a few people who have done classes at the Jamie Oliver shops and really enjoyed them, though I'm not sure if they do whole-day ones. I think there are fairly basic ones for people without much cooking experience, and then more "exotic" ones for experienced cooks to try a new cuisine. There's one in Clapham.
I gave my mum a voucher for a class at School of Wok in central London, though she hasn't used it yet. Maybe someone else can comment?
The Trinity classes sound brilliant.
Thanks everyone. In the end there was a decision to go for a Thai cookery class in New Malden, chiefLy on grounds of cost as we'd already spent money buying other gifts for the retiree and there was only about £90 left. I looked into Adam Blyth's class but he now teaches via an outfit called Cactus, which are incredibly expensive (£500 for a day class, or "experience" as they prefer to call it). it looked very much aimed at the corporate client. I'll post back on the Thai class after I hear how it went
