Cookery class timetable

Papadeli cookery class

A great deal of work and effort goes into each cookery class, from the design and planning beforehand to ensuring all the best ingredients are ready and waiting for when our students arrive! Alexis John, our head cookery tutor is meticulous in her planning and ensures every class is brilliantly enjoyable as well as informative and interesting.

We get lots of wonderful feedback for our classes, and they sell out pretty quickly, often with waiting lists.  We have come up with a new timetable for January to June next year – all look excellent and will be very popular. You can buy online here or purchase cookery class vouchers here.
