Since opening its doors in December 2009, the Edinburgh New Town Cookery School has been teaching classic and creative cookery in a professional but informal atmosphere.

Situated in the heart of the Scottish capital’s city centre, Edinburgh New Town Cookery School offers courses, designed to put every student on the right path to becoming a successful cook.

The diverse range of courses offer something for every level of ability, from chefs to homemakers and students to food enthusiasts. A practical, professional approach will give students the skills to cook with confidence and develop the essential skills necessary to be a success in the culinary world.

The school spans five floors and offers panoramic views across the Firth of Forth. The venue has been renovated to provide a fully equipped teaching kitchen alongside a demonstration theatre, with capacity for 50 and a function room, which presents the ideal dining setting for corporate entertainment or team building. The building is also suitable for PR events and product launches. The range of facilities on offer allows the school to host a broad spectrum of cookery courses and activities.

Our teachers and staff are highly qualified and bring many years of experience to the school.

Good afternoon
I thoroughly enjoyed the shortbread course today. The teachers were very helpful and gave lots of useful tips. It was a great way of spending a Friday morning. I would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone

The shortbread making class with Heather was wonderful! She was very informative and very kind- the environment was positive and the kitchen was beautiful! Would love to go again and would highly recommend! The shortbread was delicious
Note: we were traveling from the US and this was a fun activity to do on our travels, so you don’t have to be a local to enjoy this class…although if we were locals, we would be trying other classes too! ;) We’ll come again on our next travel to Edinburgh!

Teacher's response

Andrea, thank you so much for your lovely review. We loved having you and your party with us and hope if you visit Edinburgh again you will come back! Glad you loved the shortbread!
