One Week Beginner's Cookery Course

This highly practical one week beginners cookery course at Edinburgh New Town Cookery School will help those who love food but have always felt inhibited by their lack of skill in the kitchen. At the start of the course we teach basic knife skills and cooking methods and techniques. By the end of the week you will be understanding how to follow recipes and cooking meals with confidence.

The day begins at 9.30 each day with coffee whilst we run through the recipes with you. After the mornings cooking you eat the prepared food for lunch. In the afternoon there will be more cooking and demonstrations. All the food you cook, and haven't eaten for lunch, is yours to take home.

If you are planning to attend this course and do not live in Edinburgh, we can help by giving you information about accomodation within the city. This is a perfect beginners course for all ages.

This course can be taken in conjunction with the one week Intermediate Course, which runs during the following week.
