What do I bring to a cooking class?

Just yourself and a pen as you may want to write extra notes to augment the printed recipes. For practical classes I will supply the aprons.

What do I wear?

If you are coming to a practical class wear sensible shoes as you’ll be standing up as you work. No need to bring an apron unless you want to wear a favourite one. I will supply the aprons. For a demonstration class just wear something you will be comfortable in. Remember it does get warm in the kitchen.

What techniques will I learn in a cooking class?
