Bread Skills


Skills Day

We call it our Cookery Spa Day – a bit of ‘you time’ to learn some new skills whilst you spend a day preparing some of our favourite recipes. A huge topic that we could spend months teaching, on this course we will start form the beginning and get those bread juices flowing!

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.

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 5 people.
