Lunch in 90: Steak

Being confident in the kitchen is all about mastering the basics, such as how to cook the perfect steak, just the way you like it. Let our chefs take you through every step in our speedy lunch class, from choosing your cut to resting, plus how to make a classic steak sauce to finish the dish.


What to expect

Learn, laugh and enjoy a delicious lunch (and a glass of wine!) with our evening masterclasses. You’ll be spending the whole morning 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!

In this relaxed morning cooking class, our chefs will make sure you walk away confident in cooking steak just the way you like it. In under 2 hours we’ll cover top tips for buying, seasoning, frying, basting and resting steak, as well as getting the perfect serve every time.
