What to expect at Virginia Cookery classes 


  • We cater for groups up to twelve people, open to all ages and skill levels.

  • Most classes can be arranged for morning or evening.

  • The duration (length) of our classes given on the website are approximate as food may take a little shorter or longer to prepare and cook.

  • Guests usually work in pairs. If you come on your own to class that’s not a problem, we will sort you out with a cooking pal.

  • Guests arrive ten to fifteen minutes before start time and enjoy a welcome tea or coffee and a homemade snack or local cheese and crackers.

  • There is ample free parking on site. There is plenty of space to store your coat and bag.

  • Some preparation will be carried out by us before you arrive; usually the messy stuff, for example washing potatoes and peeling vegetables. Our classes are intended to give you hands-on practice, so you cook and we wash up.

  • During class we work alongside you, sharing cookery hints and tips.

  • We encourage guests to move about, see what their classmates are cooking and get most value from the class.

  • We usually cook a selection of starters or snacks; a main course or two; and dessert or cake. We are not too strict on healthy eating, we love desserts! 


We provide ingredients and aprons – cooking can be messy! 

What to bring

Wear comfortable shoes with toes and heels enclosed. Bring a lunchbox for any leftovers.

Now the serious stuff!

We will give you a safety briefing including a safety information leaflet on the day.
