Description

The Really Useful Course is for those looking to be taught professionally in order to gain the correct basic foundations of cooking making your time in the kitchen easy and more enjoyable. This course has been designed to guide inexperienced cooks through a week of well planned, transferable recipes and techniques. We offer hands-on cooking with plenty of help and support, specialising in teaching a true understanding of cookery, so you won’t need to be relying on a cookbook in order to cook for yourself and others. By the end of this 5-day intensive programme you will have progressed from a tentative cook to a confident one. You will be surprised how much you will learn!

Each day has 2 demonstrations, both in the morning and the beginning of the afternoon, getting you ready for your hands-on cooking. You will be cooking everything you eat! See the menu plan here from page 7-12.

Having completed this course you can follow it with our equally as popular Intermediate Cookery Course (see here).
