Corporate / Private Cookery Course

Cooking & Quaffing Corporate or Private Events

The Wine & Food Academy provide private ' Cooking & Quaffing ' evenings or full days for groups. Whether it's a hen-party or a departmental outing, or just a group of friends and colleagues, we can mix and match our menus and wines to suit the occasion.


We can provide a hands-on occasion, where you cook everything on a 3-course menu, or how about demonstrations of certain skills e.g. working with chocolate or preparing unusual canapés etc.

You arrive to Champagne aperitif with appetisers, and then the cooking tuition begins. We'll discuss menus with you beforehand, so you will always have the dishes of your choice. Once you've prepared and cooked the food, you will taste wines specially selected to accompany the menu perfectly, then you sit and eat!

Last night's event was superb... extremely well organized ... staff were warm and helpful, the meal was delicious and the wine-tasting was spot on. The comments from the team were unanimously favourable. Please could you pass on our gratitude to the team? We would definitely use your service again. Thanks and best wishes,
Kathy Sienko, Cerner
