Cooking Class - SOLD OUT!
Don't miss out - this event has previously been featured in the Metro newspaper and Stylist magazine and is very popular! Guests will learn the art of cooking in a special master class hosted by a top chef whose passion for food and expert knowledge is guaranteed to inspire your inner-chef!
Whether you are a complete beginner or a more experienced cook, L’atelier des Chefs run the perfect cooking class for you! Their chefs have all trained and worked in world class establishments, including Le Gavroche, Gordon Ramsay at Maze and River Cottage. They’ve also been mentored by great chefs such as Michel Roux, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and Michael Caines and now they’re here to mentor you!
The cooking evening will be a fun, sociable and memorable hands-on interactive experience. You'll start the evening with a complimentary glass of bubbles, before being divided into groups to learn how to cook seabass with salsa verde and swiss chard, served with crushed potatoes.
After the cooking session you will dine together and enjoy the chef prepared mouth-watering vanilla cheesecake with raspberry caramel drizzle. We will also include table moves between courses to ensure you meet everyone at the event.
There is no formal dating at this event, but our host will be on hand to ensure everyone gets chatting. After the event, you can keep in touch with other attendees through the SpeedDater website. It's free to send/read messages to/from other guests. Your ticket price includes the cookery tuition for the main course, a chef prepared dessert and a glass of bubbles. Please note the ticket price does not include additional drinks.
The focus of the event is to meet new people, so the format (outlined in the itinerary) is weighted more towards socialising than time in the kitchen. If you would like more kitchen time, we would highly recommend booking the longer cooking lessons directly with L'atelier des Chefs; 1hr from £39 (not singles events!).
Please advise us a min of 48 hours in advance about any dietary requirements so we can make sure everyone is looked after.
Book now, places are limited!
