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 working with a whole chicken to show you how much you can do when confident with some basic butchery. Jointing the chicken, you’ll also butterfly the breasts to create quick-cooking chicken schnitzel (that’s dinner sorted!) to serve with some beautifully chopped and sliced veg in a quick salad or slaw. The remaining chicken pieces are ready for you to cook as you like later.
