News from Edinburgh New Town Cookery School

Cooking up a passion for business

Working in a kitchen is the ultimate teambuilding experience.  Getting the best out of a chef team is about ensuring each person achieves their potential and completes a task to the best of their ability. So, very much a parallel with traditional business practices everywhere.

This Could Be You!

Are you looking to change your career? Do you feel you are not fully fulfilling your ability in your present job? Do you love cooking and want to change the direction of your life? Look no further, we can set you on the path to a new creative career in the food industry.

Maybe you've been in your job for too long, become bored, stuck in a rut and are no longer interested in the subject or the work.  Maybe you feel you're simply too young to sit it out until you retire - counting the hours, watching the clock.

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.
