Here’s a list of five of the best cookery schools in London. I’ve been to all five, and I’m happy to vouch for all of them. Indeed, I’m a better cook for visiting each one. I’ve still got a long ways to go though. So maybe I should look into booking more sessions in 2014!
L’Atelier des Chefs
– Oxford Street: 19 Wigmore Street W1U 1PH. Nearest London Underground stations are virtually equal distance at Oxford Circus and Bond Street.
– St Paul’s: 10 Foster Lane, EC2V 6HR. Nearest London Underground station is at St Paul’s.
With two convenient locations in central London, tons of classes ranging from quickie to epic, and highly qualified chefs all with Michelin star experience – L’atelier des Chefs is an easy one to recommend whatever your level of ability or culinary interest.

The Cookery School

I have the most experience learning from the masters at The Cookery School and can’t think of a singular thing to complain about. The folks who work here are so helpful and friendly – and truly know their way around a kitchen. The school’s equipment and cooking areas are perfect for learning. The list of classes and courses is extensive. Everything’s excellent at this well established, award winning venue.

Food at 52
96 Central St, EC1V 8AJ
The nearest London Underground station is at Old Street.
Food at 52 has a homier vibe than the other schools mentioned here. Attending a class here is like cooking in your own kitchen – just fully stocked with top of the line equipment and with someone else there to clean up the mess!

School of Wok
61 Chandos Place, WC2N 4HG
The nearest London Underground stations are at Leicester Square, Covent Garden and Charing Cross.
