Love is in the air, and you want to sweep your partner off their feet with a date night idea in London they’ll never forget. Well, you’ve come to the right place! Whether you’re learning how to cook for the first time, have some basic recipes already under your belt, or are a regular masterchef, there is a delicious culinary adventure out there for every couple.

Sure, a romantic dinner is a fairly nice date idea in London, but it’s even tastier when you’ve made it yourself. Plus, you’ll get to enjoy more quality time with your partner and take home some new cooking skills too. What’s not to love?

Let us tempt your senses with a bit of inspiration, and before you know it, you’ll have months’ worth of romantic days out enjoying our couple's cooking classes.

Discover the delights of sushi making

Some sprinkles green powder over handmade sushi rolls.

Put down that takeaway menu! If you’re craving flavours from the East, then try something fresh and handmade by you with this sushi masterclass. You’ll be rolling up your sleeves (and some nori) and diving into some delectable treasures from the sea. 

Gain the confidence you need to work with raw fish as you master this Japanese delicacy alongside a supportive teacher. You’ll learn how to make sushi rice, prepare the fillings, and finish it all off with perfect plating and presentation skills. Take home these new talents and keep making more tasty rolls for your date nights at home.

Explore the fragrant flavours of Thailand in a vegan cooking class

If you’ve been on the hunt for the best vegan food in the city, then you’ll definitely want to join a workshop at School Of Wok cooking school. Using vibrant ingredients you’ll learn to cook Thai dishes that are nutritious, delicious and maybe even a little bit spicy!

Don’t worry if you’ve never given Thai cookery a go before. You’ll get plenty of guidance from your experienced chef guiding the class, so you can pick up these cooking skills with ease. Whether you’re treating a regular vegan to an experience gift or you’re a dynamic duo trying a plant-based diet for the first time, this class ticks all the boxes.

Stir in some romance to your day with pasta making 

Two people roll handmade pasta.

Venice, Rome, Florence. There are few places in the world more romantic than the intimate streets of Italy. Bring a slice of that idyllic passion to your date night in London with an Italian cooking class full of sunny flavours and tasty carbs. After all, who doesn’t love a warm, wholesome bowl of pasta?

Guided by Luca, the supportive and experienced chef hosting this pasta making class, you will learn how to make pasta dough, create unique shapes that hold sauce, and finish it up with a delicious ragu recipe.

But it doesn’t stop there. You and your partner will also be treated to a few glasses of sparkling cava wine as the cherry on top of this wonderful culinary treat. With all this amazing cooking knowledge and indulgence on offer, it’s easy to see why this is one of the best date ideas in London.

Spice up your day together with a Mexican cooking class

Do you and your other half have a craving for fresh guacamole or a succulent taco feast? Finding that authentic Mexican taste in England’s capital isn’t always easy, so why not make it yourself?

No need to do it alone either! With this culinary experience in Wandsworth, you’ll be whipping up your own Mexican fiesta with an expert teacher at your side. There are plenty of tips and tricks for you to pick up, from sharpening up those knife skills as you chop up your salsa ingredients to getting comfortable blending different herbs and spices. This couple’s cooking class is sure to leave you with satisfied minds and full bellies!

Give some sweets to your sweet with a Spanish desserts class

Someone dips a churro into chocolate at the end of a baking class.

Imagine relaxing on a quaint houseboat, the summer breeze flowing in and the taste of rich chocolate on your tongue. Well, that’s exactly what you can find at this churro making class! You’ll be treating your partner’s sweet tooth (as well as your own!) to some fried, sugary delights as you leave the bustling city streets behind for a slice of peace on the water.

Learn what makes churro dough so special, get some guidance on how to fry things safely, and enjoy the stories from your talented teacher Tere. You’ll also be joined by a friendly ragdoll cat who will gladly share some cuddles!

As an extra bonus, this class also has vegan and gluten-free options. If you struggle to find date activities in London that cater to your dietary requirements, then try personalised cooking experiences like this one. You have much more control over the preparation of your food, putting your mind at ease.

Treat them like Royalty with an afternoon tea baking class

Mixing up some scones with a side of cake might sound like a strange thing to do in London for your romantic meet-up, but baking is actually a great way to de-stress and has some wonderful benefits for mindfulness. So if your other half is stressing about work deadlines, picking up some dessert recipes with a talented pastry chef is the perfect way to unwind as a couple.

You will learn how to bake three delicious items anyone would be pleased to see on their afternoon tea platter: a Victoria sponge, English scones and madeleines. Once it’s all done, you’ll take home your sweet creations to pair with a warm cuppa.

The best part of all of these food-focused workshops is that you get to sit down and tuck into your handiwork at the end. Savour every bite next to your date as you beam with pride at how well you both rock the kitchen. So no matter why you’re spending time together, whether it’s an anniversary experience gift, a first date, or you and your soulmate are visiting London together and need some fun nights out, we think you should give cooking classes a try!
