Cookery Classes for Everyone!
Sue and Sara's cookery classes, with a maximum of 8 students, will inspire those of you who want to learn to cook or increase their repertoire. The ethos of our cookery days is to reflect the seasonal produce that is available, therefore each class has a different menu.
Every class includes demonstrations and plenty of hands on experience and you will pick up more tips than you would ever find in a recipe book. But above all they aim to be confidence building and fun!
Gift vouchers are available for all our cookery classes. Why not put your own group of friends together for a Birthday or celebration?
Please browse through our cookery classes below and select a class for more information, dates and availability and booking. New dates are added throughout the year.
This is the perfect class if you would like to start baking at home. There is no substitute for practical experience rather than trying to pick up the technique from a book. With us, you will learn how to make and handle pastry, work with yeast to make a simple bread, and bake a cake for all occasions. This is a full hands on class enjoyed by men and women and we expect everyone to have flour on their aprons by the end of the morning! We will hold your own "Great British bake off" day if you book a group of 7 friends. Please ring or email us to have a chat about a private day.
Fish is the ultimate fast food and also one of the healthiest. We know that everyone wants to eat more fish but lack the confidence when it comes to choosing, preparing and cooking it.
We are extremely fortunate that Ron Fowler from Fowler and Sons in Bookham supports The Surrey Hills Cookery School and is happy to share his wealth of knowledge with us. He regularly lectures to classes of up to eighty students and with our small classes it really is a great opportunity to attend one of his lectures. As a result the classes fill up very quickly indeed.

For most 18 year olds going to university will be the first time in their lives they have had to think about shopping, cooking and preparing their own meals If they are going into catered halls, rarely are meals provided seven days a week. Having sent five children off to university between us we know that they will soon get bored of eating toast and cereal and that boys and girls cook completely differently. But with a little help from us they can learn to cook some delicious, nutritious and simple food that will make them popular with friends and housemates. Featured in ESSENTIALS magazine July 2013.
