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.

I recently had the pleasure of attending a knife skills class lead by “John”, and I must say, it was a great experience. From the moment I stepped into the well equipped kitchen space, I knew I was in for a treat. The instructor’s passion for the subject was palpable, and his expertise shone through as he guided us through the fundamentals of knife handling with clarity and patience. The class seamlessly combined safety, technique and hands on practice. The inclusive atmosphere made learning enjoyable. And at the end of the class we got to enjoy a lovely meal prepared with all the ingredients that we practiced on. Highly recommended for culinary enthusiasts of all levels.

Great class, it was so much fun and the staff were really helpful. I’ve actually booked on for a longer course because of this one!

Teacher Ghalid Assyb was amazing. He was happy to answer all the questions and gave great tips while teaching. Supporting staff was amazing too. Place is very cleaned, very well maintained and overall class was well organised. I had a great time with them. Thank you

The class was great! The teacher was a great professional, he taught us a great variety of dough and most importantly it all was very fun. Great environment, a great vibe, and an amazing smell. Everything came out of the oven delicious. I'd recommend this class to everyone who wants to have a start in the world of bread-making. And of course, you get all the bakes left and can bring it at home! Approved!

This was such a great experience! I always wanted to learn how to make croissants and in this class they even teach us different ways to use the dough and get creative with it. Everyone was really nice, they gave us scones and tea or coffee for breakfast when we arrived, and we got to try everything that we prepared, as well as take a bag full of pastries back home and the dough we prepared. I was so excited the next morning to prepare some fresh croissants and my house smelled amazing. Definitely recommend this class!
