News from Edinburgh New Town Cookery School

One Month Certificate Course

Leaving school is an exciting time for young people.  I know many who have their heart set on university and a few years studying and enjoying student life.  For others, it is the chance to start a dream career.

Given the constraints on student loans (and parents’ wallets!), earning money through holidays or while studying is essential.  And finding summer employment easily can be helped by having a marketable skill up your sleeve.  As big group holidays become more and more popular, being a cook is a terrific way to secure a summer job – and often one in a glamorous location!

Planning Your Kitchen

As a professional chef, I am often asked what people should think about when planning the layout and storage within their kitchen.  Obviously, while the kitchen is the hub of any home, it’s for cooking, so thinking through the process and needs you have when preparing meals will enable you to design a layout that works for you.

Pop in to a Unique Pop Up

As a teacher and mentor, every day brings its own satisfactions and I am never happier than when groups of happy students leave our kitchens with not just new skills, but lovely food to take home.
