You will spend your nights staying in an amazing family-run bed and breakfast. The rooms are shared and will be separated for both males and females (this can be more than one other person). Private rooms are available at additional cost.


The Avenue Cookery School will guide you to improve your cooking skills. The program will be divided into two-week sessions - providing the building blocks in the first week and creating more imaginative dishes in the second week. Your daily program will start with a demonstration and an explanation regarding the today recipes in the morning and then, you will have a break for the light refreshments where you will enjoy the morning delights of ‘The Duty Team'. This team will choose the morning meals such as bread, cake, and lemonade that will be made each day so your energy will be restored at every 11:00.

Thereafter, you will begin cooking in pairs and apply the knowledge learned in the demonstration. The Avenue Cookery School will give you the Avenue recipe book that is easy for you to follow. However, it is used as your reference and inspiration as The Avenue Cookery School will focus on teaching to understand every step you do. Thus, in the end or even after this course has finished, you can cook without looking at the instruction.

In the first week, it is assumed that you have no previous cooking experiences or want to take away the bad habits in your home so you will start everything here from the beginning. You will work carefully on the most basic techniques and these could be covered several times to enhance your skills. Also, you will learn knife skills, food management, kitchen hygiene, and menu planning. By the end of the week, you will have cooked a wide range of useful basic recipes and have a chance to be more confident in the kitchen - you can handle each dish that has been taught without looking at the recipe.

You will enjoy a well-known Avenue dinner party on the first Thursday and you may invite a couple of guests to join this party. Furthermore, in this opportunity, you will prepare the exquisite dishes for your relatives who will come and enjoy this glorious party. By doing this, you will learn how to prepare foods for a larger number of people and also enhance your timing skills.

In the second week, with the same structure, you will learn more advanced techniques such as international cuisines and tasty dinner party dishes. In addition, you will learn how to prepare dietary requirement dishes for those who need them. This learning is very flexible. Thus, if you feel any gap in the knowledge, it can be easily filled. The Avenue Cookery School welcomes all of your questions if you’re not sure about something as they believe that there’s no stupid question.
