Cooking lessons at your home

Options if you want a private cooking lesson:

Client's kitchen

Italian dinner party lesson at client’s home

This could be a one-to-one session for just you or for a small group of up to four people of your choosing! A private cooking lesson is the same price regardless of whether it is for one person or four people. Home Cook School Tutor, Lindsay, will give you a shopping list and you will provide the ingredients based on how many will be taking part in the class. Private lessons normally take place in your kitchen (this includes holiday lets). Some clients like to use their lesson to prepare for a dinner party or celebration meal. If you prefer not to shop for the ingredients, and would rather your Home Cook School Tutor brought everything along – just ask.
