What to expect

Our Christmas cooking classes are designed to help you prepare for the festive season, providing you with plenty of tips and tricks from our chefs to take the stress out of those essential dishes, plus opportunities to get ahead with recipes and some new ideas to shake things up.

Cooking together as a family is great fun and there's always something to learn, no matter how old you are! When it comes to festive cooking, we think family meals should get a bit of a Christmas makeover, too. Our chefs will inspire you with festive spins on your favourites, such as our pigs-in-blankets dinner (these guys aren't just for Christmas day!) and chocolate biscuits that are perfect for decorating. 

Leaving full of festive food and with some treats to take home, this could become a new family tradition for every Christmas!

FAQs
Will Gordon or Tilly be there…?

Gordon and Tilly try to visit the Academy when they can and love following what you’re all cooking on social media. Our classes and events are hosted by brilliant chef teachers who will be passing on tips and tricks from Gordon and Tilly, as well as tons of knowledge from their own experience in restaurants and kitchens around the world.

Can I bring more than one child...?

So things aren't too crowded and everyone gets a chance to get involved, we try to keep family classes to five adult and child pairs. If you would like to come with two or more children, give us a call and we might be able to suggest an alternative option.

Do we need to be a confident cooks…?

Our classes are aimed at helping everyone grow their confidence in the kitchen, whatever your level of experience. The most important thing is that you love food and are willing to give it a go!

if you have any concerns or would like advice on suitable classes, get in touch and we’ll be happy to help.

What if we have any food allergies or special dietary needs...?

Don't panic! We'll always try to accommodate any specific requirements if we can and you can let us know about these in the booking form.

Otherwise do contact us to discuss a particular class or booking. You could also consider booking a private class through our Private Dining and Events team that's tailored to your needs.

We unfortunately cannot guarantee an allergen or nut-free environment in any of our kitchens.

What should we wear/bring with us…?

We’ll provide you with aprons on the day and recommend comfy clothes and flat, closed-toe footwear (sorry, no big heels or flips flops!) as you’ll be moving around and on your feet quite a bit in the kitchen.

All equipment and ingredients are provided, as well as takeaway containers for any food you want to take home with you, although feel free to bring your own containers or a cool bag if you’re travelling. 

How do I get to you and is there parking…?

We’re handily located in Woking town centre, have a look at our Contact page for all location and travel advice.
