Learn to cook in August with Banbury Cookery School! July 29, 2015 09:15

Learn a new skill this summer!

At Banbury Cookery School we’ve been helping people of all ages to develop their cookery skills for over eight years.

Ilja Harvey, the head chef, will teach you the skills you need in order to impress your friends, family and loved ones and give you the confidence to cook fantastic dishes.

With classes ranging from beginners to advanced, covering topics such as bread and dough, pastry and baking right through to Italian, Indian, Caribbean and much more.

You can choose from a half day (evening or morning) or a full day. You just need to turn up as all the tools and equipment you will need is provided, including aprons, ingredients and recipes. You even get to take home what you make on the day.

We’ve created 9 classes for August, starting at beginners level, but you don’t have to do all of them, just choose the ones that suit you best!

We've been on the BBC! June 9, 2015 11:10

This Sunday saw us make our terrestrial TV debut with a feature on BBC One's Points Of View.

Presented by Jeremy Vine, we were asked by the show to cook a meal, eat it and watch a new BBC programme by one of our favourite Chefs - Nigel Slater! The show is called "Eating Together".

To see what we thought skip forward to 6m30s, you can view it on the BBC iPlayer.

Banbury Cookery School is now live! May 1, 2015 10:44

Formerly known as Pudding Pie Cookery School

In December 2014 we moved the cookery school to Banbury town centre, and at the same time we opened a restaurant, "Little Amsterdam"!

Nothing has changed except our name and a more convenient location and an even better equipped cookery school!

The re-branding exercise is in order to prevent any potential confusion between the restaurant and the cookery school.

Little Amsterdam is a traditional Dutch "pancake house", serving delicious Dutch pancakes and traditional dishes, and Banbury Cookery School is located within the same building in Banbury town centre, in North Bar Street.
