A private event at our London cook school goes beyond your typical holiday gathering. There’s plenty of cheer as well as a small, interactive environment where you’ll work with colleagues, friends, or family to cook a feast from scratch, learning valuable culinary skills. Once all the cooking is done, everyone sits down to enjoy what they made and, if they like, saying 'cheers' to an evening well spent. (Our private classes are BYOB.) For an extra-festive twist, you can opt for one of our seasonal offerings: Christmas Applied Knife Techniques, Edible Christmas Gifts, and Christmas Pudding. Here’s everything you need to know about booking a private event in November and December. For all other private event inquiries, email cookschool@boroughkitchen.com.
