For your next special event, choose the cook school class you would like on a date that works for you, and enjoy a private evening in our North London location in Hampstead or our West London location in Chiswick. We can also offer daytime classes during store opening hours in our Chiswick branch. Our classes can accommodate between 6-10 students, depending on the class you would like to book. Whether you choose one of our regular courses from our Full Range of Cook School Classes or a shortened version of some of our popular 3-hours classes, we have something to suit everyone of all skill levels

Our shortened 2-hour versions of our full-length classes include:

  • Fresh Pasta: over the course of 2 hours, participants form teams to learn how to make both white and wholemeal pasta dough. Each team will make its own roasted vegetable lasagne, tagliatelle, and spaghetti.
  • French Macarons: master the craft of making macarons from scratch. Participants will learn how to whip meringues and cream by hand, a foolproof formula for macarons, and piping techniques.
  • Bread and Pizza: learn how to make bread and pizza dough by hand with minimal mess. Foccacia, artisanal whole wheat bread, and pizza will be made and enjoyed throughout the class.
  • Classic Canapés with a Modern Twist:learn a variety of classic canapé techniques including choux pastry for gougeres, olive tapenade from scratch, and savoury palmiers.

  • Led by our trained chefs, the Cook School uses Borough Kitchen’s high quality products, giving participants a hands-on experience with a range of tools. Our kitchens use some of the latest and best equipment available from industry-leader Gaggenau. Classes are limited in size, providing an intimate learning environment with personalised instruction. Each class will have a chef and sous chef to give all students the required amount of attention for an enjoyable evening building skills and confidence in our kitchens.
