How it works

Home Cook School delivers cooking lessons in the comfort of your own home or at the Home Cook School tutor’s home in Maybole, South Ayrshire.

Cooking lessons will be tailor made to suit your individual tastes, interests and requirements. We want to develop your cooking skills and knowledge regardless of whether you are an absolute beginner or a keen Home Cook.

Through initial discussions prior to the lesson, your tutor, Lindsay will help you plan a menu. She’ll provide plenty sample menu ideas – don’t worry!

Lindsay also delivers Scottish themed cooking lessons which are perfect for tourists who would like to experience some beautiful Scottish cuisine and sample some seasonal Ayrshire ingredients.

Lessons can be taken individually or in small groups of up to four people (if you have the lesson in your own home, just make sure you consider how many people can comfortably fit in your kitchen!) If you decide to have your lesson at home, you will be provided with a shopping list so you can gather the ingredients prior to the session. Lessons at home should be relaxing and convenient – don’t worry if your kitchen doesn’t have all the mod-cons! We will work with what you have. Lessons are designed so you can easily recreate them without the need for any expensive gadgets! If you have your lesson in the Home Cook School kitchen in Maybole, your tutor Lindsay will take care of the ingredients.

Home Cook School can also deliver corporate cooking activities for example alternative ‘Christmas Parties’ or even ‘Cupcake and Fizz’ Lessons (also perfect for a hen do) – just ask!!

All customers be given recipe cards for all the dishes you make so you can practice at home. You can tuck into your culinary creations after the lesson (or during for that matter!)

“Absolutely loved my two cooking classes with Lindsay. She is patient and helpful and really champions local produce. 5* fun and informative classes.”
