Woking Academy

Online masterclass: Falafel

These little chickpea balls are so popular, we thought they deserved a whole class of their own. Perfect for lunch, dinner or a snack on the go, our online cooking class will not only teach you the secrets to perfect falafel, but also a speedy bread and tahini sauce to go alongside.


What to expect

When you need some quick cooking inspiration, our Online masterclasses are the perfect place to start. Join us through Zoom from wherever you are in the world and cook along with our chefs as they teach you a new skill or recipe, all within the comfort of your own kitchen. Using your own ingredients and equipment means you’ll be confident that you can recreate all the dishes whenever you like.

You’ll join our chef teachers virtually at the Academy, where they’ll guide you through the recipes and techniques step-by-step, watching you on screen and advising you throughout the class.

We’ll email you all the details in advance so you can shop and prepare in plenty of time, then in the class you can just concentrate on cooking along with the chef and your fellow classmates – and eating your fantastic food as well!

In this class, you’ll be cooking a speedy meal inspired by the Middle East. You’ll learn how to make flavour-packed falafel as well as mixing up your own bread dough for golden flatbreads. Finished with a creamy tahini or yoghurt sauce, you’re ready to scoop, wrap and enjoy.
