With Christmas just around the corner, there's never been a better time to eliminate the panic and get most of your Christmas cooking done well in advance!

In this fun London cooking class, you'll spend the day learning how to prepare a delicious feast of festive food using sustainably sourced, high-quality, organic ingredients.

Your expert teacher will kick things off by treating you to a delicious breakfast to enjoy before you chat about how to time your Christmas meal to perfection with an invaluable to-do list and pre-lunch timetable.

You'll pick up plenty of new cooking techniques, alongside handy tips and tricks to help you gain confidence and leave you calm, cool and collected when preparing your dinner on the big day.

After cooking, you'll sit down for a fabulous Christmas lunch and celebrate with a glass of fizz followed by a very special Christmas ice cream and mince pies, all accompanied by delicious organic wine.

At the end of this festive cooking class, you'll be perfectly prepared for Xmas, with the stuffing, cranberry sauce and bread sauce ready for freezing to use on the day. You will also leave with mincemeat, Christmas cake and the confidence to recreate your feast at home!

In 2003 Rosalind Rathouse decided to set up her own cookery school. What makes her qualified to run a cookery school? The answer is twofold: 50 years of teaching experience plus a passion for food and cooking. This passion led to her founding Piemaker in the 80s -- a maker and supplier of wholesale pies and cakes to the likes of Harrods, Waitrose and the Orient Express.

With the decline in people passing down home cooking through the generations, in 2003 Rosalind decided to combine her enthusiasm for teaching and her love of food to open Cookery School at Little Portland Street. The lasting principles of classic, simple home cooking are embedded in the school’s ethos even today. Rosalind feels very strongly that proper teaching can enthuse even the most unconfident cook. By 2008, the school was thriving, with fully booked classes, courses and corporate events gaining in popularity, so Rosalind took on a second, much larger, kitchen in the same building.

Even before the inception of the cookery school, Rosalind has been fervently passionate about sustainability. Cookery School has the highest possible rating for sustainability from the Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA) and has been virtually plastic-free since the beginning. Sustainability is not just a buzzword but runs through the veins of the school, from sourcing top quality, seasonal, mostly organic ingredients, to running the kitchens on renewable energy, the school does everything possible to minimise its impact on the planet.
