Our approach to food is simple, modern and imaginative. We love sharing our ideas for delicious home-cooking and are constantly finding fresh sources of inspiration to bring to our classes.

At The Heart of Cooking the atmosphere is fun and sociable. We provide the skills necessary to become a confident and independent cook and all our classes have a very high proportion of hands-on practice. However we are not here to teach you how to turn a tomato into a rose. We teach good home-cooking that people love to eat.

We provide plenty of opportunity to ask questions and gain understanding of supposedly demanding techniques. Every session involves tasting all the food that has been made, further enhancing your ability to become a skilled home cook.

We always source the finest seasonal ingredients - organic when possible and use a range of very exciting suppliers.

Our beliefs underpin our teaching and set us apart from other schools and institutions: good ingredients and taste are paramount in producing good simple and delicious food.

We will encourage you to read further, look at and understand recipes and how to change and adapt them to make them your own.

Once you have gained confidence in the kitchen we have no doubt you will be experimenting too and creating exciting new recipes that suit your palate.
