Options if you want a private cooking lesson:

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). We are based in Ayrshire, and whilst we do deliver lessons in other areas of Central and South West Scotland, we do ask that you contact us first if you want a lesson outside of Ayrshire. 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. Click here to look at some sample menus to give you ideas for your lesson. Your tutor will agree the final menu with you when booking your lesson date.
  • 2 hour lesson (where you can cook at least 3 dishes and have the option to invite your friends round to enjoy the meal after your lesson). Price £100
  • 3 hour lesson (you will cook at least 4 dishes, you will stop and enjoy nibbles during the session). Price £140
  • 6 hour full day lesson (you will cook around 6 dishes and have the meal during the lesson). Price £260

Lindsay worked with us to agree the best way to deliver this, which ended up being via Facebook Live. A menu was agreed upon and Lindsay made sure all the ingredient lists were posted well in advance, allowing the team to gather what they needed. Each session was informative and fun, and those who took part enjoyed the hour, as well as the tasting of the food afterwards! Would definitely recommend as a good way to boost team morale and we hope to be able to do a live demonstration once it is safe to do so.”

Private lessons start at £100 for a 2hr lesson, £140 for a 3hr lesson or £260 for a 6 hour lesson. Up to 4 people can join in for this price. Ingredients are not included. This is because we tailor-make the lessons to suit what our customers want to learn - sometimes its a simple pot of soup, sometimes its a lavish meal! Sometimes they want to cook for a sophisticated dinner party, sometimes they want to cook for the kids! So, to keep it simple, we provide an ingredients list a week before the lesson. This gives our customers plenty time to buy the ingredients and ask any questions they might have. However, if you are really keen to include ingredients - just let us know, and we can work out the menu in advance and add on a cost for ingredients. Click here to see some of the sample menus we cover in our cooking lessons. Your lesson will be personalised to your requirements when booking the date for the lesson. Please contact us before booking if you are looking for a lesson outwith Ayrshire.

Please call us on 07968 478668 or send us an email if you have any queries.

Online Lessons For when you cant all get together, why not organise a private online cooking lesson? Together we decide how many people will join the lesson and set up a video call. We send out the ingredients list a week in advance too (ingredients are not included). All this from the comfort of your own home! A 1.5hr lesson costs £150 and up to 8 people can join in! Contact us directly for larger groups and corporate enquiries.
