Welcome to John Whaite's Kitchen Cookery School, set in the heart of rural Lancashire. 

Our mission is: to nourish. We want to teach you the culinary skills necessary to create delicious, wholesome food, using domestic equipment and ingredients, so that you can replicate everything you learn at the school when you get home. 

We offer a range of hands-on classes, from fine patisserie, to rustic, home cooking. Our lessons are hands-on and informative, but most importantly, enjoyable and fun. John teaches most of the lessons himself, unless otherwise advertised. 

We welcome groups and couples, as well as lone travellers - everyone is made to feel comfortable here; we invite you into our informal, homely setting. 

Our classes start with coffee and breakfast while everyone gets to know one another. Then we crack on with the day's lesson, whether that's mastering the perfect afternoon tea, or rustling up a street food feast. We finish by sitting down together to enjoy food and drinks.
