Fabulous Low & Slow cookery class
okt. 2021 • Par
This was a birthday present for my son and what a fabulous time we had. We were welcomed with fresh croissant, coffee and juice. Coffee, tea and water remained available all through the 5 hr course.

Once everybody was settled we were expertly guided through the course by Kendal, a wonderful and lively Canadian with a good sense of humour and a wealth of culinary tips.

The course was structured with a demonstration by Kendal of what prep we needed to do before we headed to our station to do the same. We cooked in pairs.

The menu we cooked was:
Baked beetroot, watercress with blue cheese dressing

Beef short ribs with a (delicious) barbecue sauce
Boston baked beans
Garlic and chipotle Slaw
Corn bread (which we did not make)

Lemon tart with Italian meringue (made by Kendal while we were there)

All the dishes were fabulously tasty.

Certain prep items were completed by Kendal and her team ahead of the course to make the most of our time there. These include brining the short ribs (overnight), baking the beetroot, confit the garlic. All ingredients were weighed and portioned, again to save time on the course so we got maximum cooking experience.

All in all a brilliant way to spend 5 hours in Kings Cross.

Definitely one of the best things I’ve done and enjoyed. Well done Waitrose Finchley Road Cookery School!
mai 2021 • Alene
I am a complete novice and over 70, but having been given a voucher for my birthday, it allowed me to choose two separate courses at the Finchley Road School. So easy to get to, it is 1 minute from the tube station. Being on my own I was a little anxious but on entering, I was welcomed by the affable front of house manager, Liz, who immediately put me at my ease with her warm, natural style and helpful information about what I could expect, not least a free (and refillable) glass of Prosecco or any other drink I might want including a soft one.
Then the ebullient Emily, the main chef and teacher of both my courses, took over. She not only has obvious skills as an experienced chef herself but also has the real talent of being able to express the recipes in a way that even I could understand and execute during the course. Emily even gave little cooking tips outside of the recipes that make life easier.
The outcome was that I felt more confident and achieved two dishes that tasted great as we were allowed to eat our own efforts, again with a glass of something.
THIS WAS ONE OF THE BEST THINGS I’VE TRIED AND THOROUGHLY ENJOYED and it is completely down to the professionalism, friendliness and commitment shown by Emily, Liz and their team. Waitrose Cooking School can be rightly proud of these courses

Mexican and Mojito Magic
sep. 2020
What a fantastic way to spend a day in these challenging times.
Received a lovely warm welcome from Liz, front of house, with coffee and pastries.
Emily, our chef of the day was friendly, enthusiastic very skilled and patient answering questions and sharing tips.My knife skills improved 100%
Laura supported Emily during the day- reassuring and keeping you on track.
They were a great team.
I had never eaten a quesadilla - this pulled chicken version was scrumptious.We ate them for lunch with beers / wine
Once you have tried a true Mexican chilli con-carne you will never be able to eat a ‘western’ chilli con carne again .
The dessert , bananas in rum with cajeta was soooo delicious
The day was finished with a Mojito
I nearly missed my stop on way home - full of yummy food and drink .
Book yourself on the next course - you will not be disappointed.

Went there for a cooking class with my 6 years old and he loved it! The waiting area is very nice and staff very welcoming. My son came back with impressive skills such as mastering knife when cutting shallots.

Wonderful Experience - highly recommended
aug. 2019
I completed the Vietnamese Street Food course last thursday and loved every bit of it. Our instructors Eleni and Helen were excellent, providing clear explanations and helpful hints along the way. The food we cooked was delicious and the set up was highly professional, well organised and in a fantastic setting. I would love to return for another class and proof of their good work was that my buddy, had already attended a number of their classes and was back again.

Really Loved the Italian Patisserie Course
jul. 2019
A great day at the Waitrose Cookery School learning how to make a selection of Italian patisserie. Everything was very well organised, the staff were all very professional, friendly and helpful and all the hospitality we received was excellent. We were given demonstrations of how to prepare the cakes and then had the opportunity to have a go ourselves, plus we were able to take home all the cakes we had made.

Great Cookery Class
aug. 2019 • Par
We were given a gift voucher for the Kings Cross cookery school, and used it for the Bombay Cafe class this weekend.we had a great time, everything is well organised and the chefs gave great demonstrations to show how to prepare the different dishes. Helen and Nathan were really enthusiastic and really great teachers, and if you had any question they were always on hand to assist. The dishes were absolutely delicious and it has made us more inclined to cook these again! We were also taught knife skills and different ways to prepare certain foods which we will definitely be using. Highly recommend, and we are already looking at other courses we could go on!

Day of French Cookery
jul. 2019 • Par
My husband and I attended the Finchley Road branch of Waitrose Cookery School for a day of French Cooking. We were not disappointed. We received a lovely warm welcome and pastries, fruit, yoghurt and granola were available to start our day off.
Kendall our chef for the day was enthusiastic, engaging and taught us a lot throughout the day. Ingredients were plentiful and each course was accompanied by wine or soft drinks of your choice.
Nothing was too much trouble and all the staff played an active role in the day.
We came away extremely full but also inspired to try out all the skills we had learnt. Definitely have to make the triple cooked chips which were amazing.

Absolutely brilliant - unbelievable value for money
jan. 2019 • Alene
Did the sauces course and couldn't believe what great value for money it was. 3 chef teachers, a theatre where they did demos, 1 cooking station between 2 so loads of hands on experience and loads to take home at the end. Followed by a delicious meal with wine...I'll 100% be back. Have done classes at various rival schools and none come close and are double the price. The teacher was exceptionally patient and did a great job of explaining the science of everything. Loved it.
