News from Edinburgh New Town Cookery School

We’ve cooked up some delicious last minute Christmas gift ideas...

What’s the best gift you’ve ever received?

A visit to might give you some fairly exclusive ideas for this Christmas.   Elizabeth Taylor’s jewellery collection sold for £75 million at Christie’s in December 2011 making somebody very, very happy.

Or how about a rather more modestly priced trip into space on the Virgin Galactic?  Already 630 intrepid adventurers have paid their deposits of $250,000.

And the winner is...

It’s the cookery school awards season and we’ve been delighted with our recognition this year.

Five years after starting out it’s a real fillip to find yourself rubbing shoulders with the very best.

Ever wondered what ski instructors do during the summer?

Meet Michelle Logan, one time ski instructor, now full time chef.

While Michelle always looked forward to the winter months, the summer never seemed quite as appealing. That is, until she realised a cookery course would give her the skills and ability to be able to work and travel the whole year through.
