We call it our Cookery Spa Day – a bit of ‘you time’ to learn some new skills whilst you spend a day preparing a fabulous feast for four to take home for your family or friends. Some of Maria’s favourite Summer recipes all in one course. Delicious food and new skills, what’s not to like!


What you’ll be making and learning…….

Plus a bottle of wine to take home from St Austell Brewery to wash it all down.



How the day goes….

Arrive at 10am for Aj’s famous breakfast before donning your apron and gathering around our large teaching island. Your cookery teacher will then demonstrate the first dish of the day, with overhead cameras capturing the finer details. Then it’s time for some hands-on cooking, as you head to your fully equipped cooking bay where trays of pre-prepared ingredients will be waiting. Cooking will commence, with your teacher pausing the class at convenient times to demonstrate a new technique, or the next dish.

At around 3:30pm we will pop open a bottle of bubbles whilst we show you how to plate and finish the final dishes on your own at home.

Drinks and snacks are provided throughout the day as well as aprons, tea towels and recipe cards. We also provide takeaway boxes, however, please feel free to help us reduce packaging waste by bringing your own reusable containers.

Due to government social distancing guidelines at Truro School Cookery all events are limited to 10 people. 

Recommended ages 18+ years

We will try our very best to adapt our menus for specific dietary requirements. However, details must be emailed at the time of booking to cookery@truroschool.com. Regrettably recipes and menus cannot be adapted on the day.
