Cuisine Technique Essentials


Held over four evening classes (same day weekly), Cuisine Technique Essentials teaches fundamental cuisine skills that will provide you with a solid foundation of technical knowledge. Techniques are first demonstrated by our Chefs before you apply them to a number of carefully selected recipes to develop your practical abilities. This course has been designed to improve your confidence in your kitchen at home and provide an essential repertoire of skills that can be applied daily to a variety of dishes.

In our evening Cuisine Techniques Essentials cooking course, you will learn:

  • Evening one
    Poached Scallops, Lemon and Basil Pasta
  • Evening two
    Roasted and stuffed Baby Chicken, Potato Purée with Horseradish and Jus
  • Evening three
    Lemon Sole Fillets ‘Grenobloise’
  • Evening four
    Pan Fried Lamb Cutlets, Gratin Dauphinois and Grain Mustard Sauce 

All cooking equipment and teaching resources are provided in our practical kitchens for your use on the day. No prior knowledge is required for this course, which is suitable for both novices and cooks with some experience. All of the food created during the day is yours to take home with you.

Each class takes place at the same time as the first session on a weekly basis for four weeks.

Class structure

Your day will be a mixture of in-kitchen demonstrations performed by the chef who is running the session and hands-on practical cookery, where you are guided by the expert teaching chef. The exact format will vary from class to class depending on the style of cuisine and length of the course.
