Leeds Cookery School donates 100% of its profit to Zest, a local Leeds charity supporting people living in disadvantaged areas of the city. Zest carry out a large number of projects including running social clubs, helping families to access food in the school holidays, developing cooking skills and lots more in between!

Across our range of classes, courses and events at Leeds Cookery School our teachers promote and talk about seasonal ingredients, local sourcing and the importance of eating ethically and sustainably. Our ingredients are sourced from Yorkshire and are sustainable wherever possible and we always use free-range eggs. We order small quantities to minimise wastage and always consider the food miles travelled by our ingredients.

As well as donating profits to Zest, Leeds Cookery School has committed to running affordable cooking activities throughout the year, in partnership with Jamie’s Ministry of Food Leeds and Zest’s Community Development Team. These sessions enable low-income families and vulnerable people to access basic cookery skills and cookery clubs that address social isolation.

Mairead Brougham Feb 2024


Daniel was great - katsu curry and gyoza's were great. Building and setting work really well. Great value for money and would definitely go again.

Ruth Crabtree Feb 2024


Really enjoyed the relaxed pace. Chef was friendly. Learnt lots and will recreate dishes at home.

Leigh Dunkley Feb 2024


Had an amazing time at the couples tapas cooking class with Daniel and team. The venue was intimate and the experience fun and enjoyable. Once we had cooked four different dishes, we were able to enjoy them with the other attendees over a glass of well deserved wine! Thank you.

Beata Szaszko Jan 2024


Wonderful experience, definitely would recommend for all types of keen cookers. Scott was a wonderful teacher, very friendly and patient for my 'not so enhanced' skills.

Teodora Ampirska Dec 2023


Scot and Julie were fantastic and made us feel at home while learning new tricks to practice in the kitchen.
The menu was very interesting and all the activities were very well timed so we had plenty of time for questions and to practice our newly learned skills.
We used some of the food we cooked for lunch which was pleasantly served and we also enjoyed a glass of wine with it.
We were provided suitable containers (I am afraid the once I brought would not have been good enough) to take our food home and useful tips on how to reheat and serve it at home. My family loved it!
The venue is great, with convenient parking, clean, bright and very welcoming. It was a suppose for us that all the profits from the classes go to charity to help with vital projects in Leeds.
As a bonus, we received good tips on restaurants to visit in Leeds and York.
All in all it was a great day and I would strongly recommend the class.

Edward Nov 2023


The teacher was really passionate about cooking and that really helps when you're learning something! He really made everyone feel included and got us all stuck in. The venue was perfect for our group size and had great equipment for everything in the class. Good quality ingredients as well and obviously tasted great at the end of it!

It was nice to be able to eat at the end of the class and have a chat. Learn how to make tempura batter and how to make a Japanese curry sauce from scratch (I'm used to using just the blocks you can buy from an Asian supermarket and stir into some water).

Sarah Shand Nov 2023


It was a lovely thing to go to. Thanks for everything. I forgot to pick up my recipes, can they please be emailed to me?

Dennis Badman Nov 2023


Our teacher Daniel and Anne in support were wonderful, friendly, relaxed and very informative. The venue is superb and ideally located. We learned a lot and had a lovely time. I totally recommend this class and it's in support of Zest, which is a wonderful charity.

Amy Watts Oct 2023


We have just attended the Vegan Northern Indian Cookery Class and learnt some new skills and filled 3 tubs each of yummy food to have for tea. Thank you so much! We had a great morning.

A very competent tutor with an excellent teaching style that allowed for a relatively easy and gentle creation of a magnificent curry!
Can’t wait to try it out again on my own

Szonja Kiss Sep 2023


The doughnut making class was great! We ended up giving some away to neighbours, we made so many the teacher was very friendly and approachable, great class and delicious doughnuts! Would recommend!

Steven Brown Sep 2023


It’s been postponed till early 2024. You did send me an e-mail about this. Please get back in touch after the re-arranged date.
Thank you.

James Woods Sep 2023


Well organised, friendly and knowledgable. The food we cooked tasted amazing! We will definitely come again

Ghislaine Cross Sep 2023


The teacher Scott and staff were exceptional! Very professional but friendly and encouraging.
Venue very accessible for all.
Ingredients were all provided and Scott taught us to make Japanese Gyozas, katsu curry with breaded pork, sticky rice and tempura veg! Amazing Food tasted superb and we all sat to eat together with a beer or lemonade.
We will return and recommend it highly!

Tomos Rees Jul 2023


Me and my parter had a great time at the class. We're now thinking of what one should we book next.

Teacher's response

Thanks for the lovely review Tomos! We're glad you enjoyed the class and look forward to seeing you again! Look out for your 10% off discount for your next class in your emails Regards, Rosie.

Norman was fantastic, and gave some great cultural context around the dishes we were making. The class was mostly very well organised and ran very smoothly. The Char Kuay Teow recipe was simple and very effective, delicious, quite faithful to the original and was easy to replicate at home. The curries were a great introduction to two different styles of Malaysian curry, the Kapitan curry in particular was delicious. Some of the tips and tricks (e.g. making kerisik from creamed coconut) will be invaluable for me in future when making other dishes like Rendang. An excellent basis was given for how to prepare the rotis, but I would have appreciate more practice and coaching on these skills on the day. If Norman were to offer a course like this again with some different dishes, I would be excited to join it. Thanks Norman!
