Truro School Cookery
Whether you are a beginner looking to learn new skills, or a confident cook looking to be inspired, Truro School Cookery provides one-to-one guidance and tuition in a relaxed, fun environment designed to equip you with a range of techniques and recipes to encourage confidence in the kitchen.
The purpose built teaching kitchen is situated within the Truro School campus and offers a wide range of courses and activities for all ages, from full day, half day, holiday and student courses, plus a venue for bespoke events.
The cookery school is a hybrid establishment; during the day it serves the students of Truro School with the Leiths Certificate of Food and Wine and other cookery classes, out of school hours and during school holidays these incredible facilities are opened to the wider public. Foremost, we run high-quality, affordable evening, weekend and holiday courses aimed at improving confidence and enjoyment in the kitchen. The venue is rapidly expanding to host birthday parties, pop-ups and other exciting, commercial ventures. Whether you are a local resident, or a visitor to Cornwall, we would love for you to come and experience first-hand the fun of Truro School Cookery.
Ideally located in the heart of Truro, with parking, Truro School Cookery can host a range of bespoke courses, events and activities tailored-made to suit your requirements. Corporate team-building, hen parties, private dining, special birthdays, anniversaries, baby showers, family get-togethers, days with a difference… whatever you would like to do, we can do it! We also have an accessible rise and fall worktop and disabled access toilets, so we are delighted to welcome guests in wheelchairs or with mobility difficulties. Younger guests (under 10 years) are also welcome by arrangement.
The Cookery School was officially opened by Prue Leith CBE DL in September 2018.
During a Q and A session, Prue talked to the students about the various interests she followed before discovering cookery; from drama school to art school, then the Sorbonne, Paris to study French but where she fell in love with cooking. They were delighted to hear that along the way there have been a few “kitchen disasters” involving concrete-like Christmas cake icing, serving cold soup rather than hot, boiling potatoes in a tea-urn and a stray cat-collar! Asked why she had decided to set up a Cookery School, she explained that Catering College had never taught her anything about the love for, or history of, food and she wanted to ensure her students were taught how interesting food can be at every level.
After the official opening Prue said:
“’So good to find a school taking food so seriously and everyone having so much fun in the brilliant new cook school”.
