Thanksgiving dinner

Happy Thanksgiving! Cook up a Thanksgiving feast in our evening cooking class. We'll treat you to a welcome drink and seasonal canapés, before cooking your own turkey dinner and a delicious dessert. This seasonal class full of warming flavours is the perfect celebration to kick off the winter festivities. 


What to expect

Join us to give thanks for all things delicious as we give a nod to this traditional American celebration with an evening cooking class that will be fun and a little bit festive. Yes, there will be turkey but with trimmings and sides with a US-style twist!

If you've ever been interested in this American feast, this is your chance to try a few recipes and learn a few new cooking tips and tricks as you go.

We'll be welcoming you to the Academy with a seasonal drink and nibbles to toast the occasion, then getting you in the kitchen to cook your own turkey dinner and a sticky, sweet pudding, too.

Sit down with your fellow guests to enjoy your hard work and a glass of wine - we can definitely give thanks for that!
