Essential Skills In the Kitchen

On this full day you will learn how to use and look after your knives, how to combine flavours and ingredients, understand different cooking techniques and when they should be used.

Essential Skills In the Kitchen

On this full day course we cover essential kitchen skills such as knife care before moving on to vegetable preparation, simple butchery, fish cookery and some pastry work. At the end of the course you will have mastered the skills required to prepare a simple and tasty meal with confidence.

Have fun!

Perhaps most importantly, as well as learning new skills, you will have had some fun learning in a relaxed and supportive environment. During the course the emphasis is on using personal taste, judgement and technique rather than slavishly following a recipe. This approach means that one recipe may become two or three recipes. However, a booklet containing the course recipes will be given to you at the end of the day / course.

Everyone has their own set of ingredients sharing only a 4 burner induction hob and standard size fan assisted oven with one other learner. We all work together at the same pace with each stage demonstrated before you do it yourself.

We will stop and eat as we go along so that you taste dishes at their best and we can discuss. There may be food to take home with you, but not always.

The not so small print – please read.

It is essential that you wear flat shoes with a closed toe – this is for your safety and comfort, we will be on our feet most of the time.

It is essential when booking that you advise of any accessibility issues, allergies or dietary requirements. Rutland Cookery School is committed to being as inclusive as possible and we will do our utmost to accommodate you but we do need to know in advance.

Dishes prepared may vary from examples above.
