Our aim is to provide guidance on topics as diverse as practical nutrition, vegetarian options, cooking with seasonal produce, and effective shopping techniques.

At the COOKING school, we provide a practical introduction to cooking skills and knowledge, in an environment that is fun but informative. Our teachers are relaxed yet professional, and our classes are a mix of hands on and demonstration.

Head Chef Gabriele has managed commercial kitchens for over 20 years and joined "the COOKING school" in 2010.

Sri Lankan Cooking Class

We just had a great hen's party with Gabriele helping us cook our own Sri Lankan feast! Gabriele went to every effort to make sure we all had a good time and weren't rushed. Gabriele has a lovely patient nature that had everyone at ease from the get go and nurtured us through the dishes, especially if we felt like just having a chat while he cooked a bit! Drinks were on ice, snacks were servedwhat a great way to incorporate an activity and a meal for such an occasion. Thanks again Gabriele and co.
