Dinner in 90: Fried chicken

Sometimes it just has to be fried chicken. Learn how to make your own in our quick evening cooking class and you’ll be sorted the next time the craving hits at home. Our chefs will teach you how to get that deliciously crispy coating and the secrets to a great marinade, plus chips and slaw to complete the feast.

What to expect

Learn, laugh and enjoy a delicious dinner (and a glass of wine!) with our evening masterclasses. You’ll be spending the whole evening with us at the Academy, but it will only take 90 minutes to master a new recipe and pick up some essential skills. Then sit down, relax and tuck in… cheers!

During this 90-minute class, we’ll focus on making sure you know how to get beautifully tender, moist, flavour-packed chicken with the crunchiest fried coating. You’ll leave confident in how to deep-fry your chicken and chips and have your recipes at hand to practise any time you want at home.

We’d love you to share your meal and a drink with us, but you can always pack it up as your own takeaway instead.
