One Week Basic Cookery Course

Our basic cookery course is designed for people who would like to expand their limited knowledge of cookery. It will address the basic techniques, which are fundamental to good cooking. It covers the same ground as week 1 of the four week course. You will learn to cook and prepare food quickly and confidently, to plan ahead and produce food without effort or panic. Our student feedback reveals how others have benefited from this course. Our patient and experienced staff will create an environment which is educational and fun.


 It has been a brilliant experience. My confidence in the kitchen has definitely gone up. - Henry G 


The course will cover the following aspects of cookery for beginners:-

  • Menu Planning
  • Food Presentation
  • Sauces and Soups
  • Bread and Pastry
  • Fish, Meat and Poultry
  • Salad Dressings
  • Preparing and Cooking Fresh vegetables
  • Roasting, Grilling, Casseroling
  • Delicious Desserts

Training will take place in our purpose built, fully equipped kitchen with plenty of working space for each student. You will enjoy working with other students and we also make sure there is plenty of personal tuition and help. A large part of each day will be taken up with hands-on cooking as we believe this is the best way to learn.

 You do not need to bring any special cooking equipment as you will be supplied with everything you need to enable effective learning. You will also be given a copy of our fantastic well-researched course book containing numerous tried and tested recipes to ensure you become a confident and competent cook.

The fee for the one week basic cooking course is £955 which includes accommodation in a shared twin room from Monday to Thursday night, and breakfast, lunch and dinner. You can progress from this course to weeks two, three and four of our well-respected four week residential cookery course. Our beginners' cookery course starts on a Monday morning at 11am. Other days run from 9.00am until 5.30pm. On Friday the course finishes at 1.00pm. We also offer our students free use of a nearby luxurious sport and fitness centre, including fabulous pool at Tortworth Court ( http://www.four-pillars.co.uk/Tortworth/lclub.html).
