How the days go….

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 the all important day.

How the final evening goes….

Mulled wine, mince pies and sausage rolls are served from 6:30pm and shortly after Maria will demonstrate how to decorate your cake and AJ will talk about how he won the best decorated Christmas cake at Leiths for the remainder of the evening! Corny Christmas tunes are obligatory.

Drinks and snacks are provided throughout the day and evening 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 5 people.
