Basic Cooking Days


Desperate to cook but don’t really know how? No time to take our full, week-long course? No problemo! Come and join our Basic Cooking Days for a ay full to the brim with tips and tricks of the trade. From knife skills to learning to make a Roast from scratch, we’ve got you covered!

Our Basic Cooking Days are perfect for those who want to learn some basic culinary skills. With the help of our experienced, friendly and knowledgeable chefs by the end of these days you will have prepared a top-notch two course lunch and multiple other dishes. You’ll leave The Avenue doors with a newfound confidence in cooking.

Each day is individual and are structured to make up our week-long Really Useful Course but on some quieter weeks we offer those who can’t join the full week the option to join for individual days. The week is structured for participants to progress from Monday through to Friday, so we ask you to join the Monday and work your way through the week to avoid being left behind. Each day covers new skills and new dishes, so if you really love the first day, why not join the rest of the week?!

Each morning will kick off with a demonstration, showing you how to prepare the dishes you will be whipping up throughout the day. Our chefs will go through essential skills, teaching you about each dish and how to cook it independently and, wait for it, without a cookbook! It may sound daunting but never fear, our chefs will be there the whole time to offer guidance and support where needed so you can leave the class confident in recreating the dishes at home.

Dinner Party animal? Well, you’re in luck! *Day 4 will be spent prepping the food and the beautiful kitchen for the dinner party held for your family and friends (each person gets the option to invite a couple of people at no extra cost). Starting off with a wine & origins of alcohol talk before the guests arrive at 7pm when the evening festivities begin. If you are keen to join in you can book Day 4 + evening meal to showcase your new found skills amongst great food and company. What more could you possibly ask for?

Whether a day or the full week you will leave feeling surprised at how much you have learnt!
