Waitrose Cookery School

We cater for beginners and seasoned cooks alike, with courses to suit every palate. Whether you’re at the Waitrose Cookery School for an hour, an evening or a full day, our talented chefs will inspire you to get creative with quality Waitrose ingredients. There’s lots on offer, from street food to Italian classics and bread-making to perfect pastry. Children can get involved too, with a range of entertaining workshops.

Our chefs come from some of the best professional kitchens in the country, such as Marcus Wareing’s Tredwell’s, The famous Ritz in London, Scott’s in London, Pierre Koffmann in London and Harrods.
