Aj’s Cornish Autumn


Family Chef

Using only the freshest and most seasonal ingredients Cornwall has to offer from our network of local suppliers. Aj will guide you through some of his favourite food and you will both learn how to make some full flavoured and satisfying dishes to keep everyone going as those dark days get a little longer.

Our family cooking days are all about enabling family to get together, cook together and learn together. A family cooking day at Truro School Cookery gives a ‘Big Chef’ and a ‘Little Chef’ the opportunity to spend the day together cooking up a fabulous feast for four people to take home. If you just can’t agree between a beach or a book shop then we have just the thing for you both to enjoy!

How the day goes….

On arrival at Truro School Cafe at 9.45 you will be greeted with a freshly made smoothie for the ‘Little Chef’ and an Origin coffee for the ‘Big Chef, as well as freshly baked pastries. At 10am you will be invited through to the Cookery School to don your aprons and gather around our large teaching island. Your cookery teacher will demonstrate the first dish of the day, with overhead cameras capturing the finer details.

Now is 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 technique, or the next dish.

At around 3pm we will pop open a bottle of something delicious whilst we show you how to plate and finish the final dishes before you head home with everything you need for your own ‘feast for four’.

Aprons, tea towels and recipe cards are provided as well as all ingredients and takeaway boxes. However, please feel free to help us reduce packaging waste by bringing your own reusable containers.
