Does anyone know of anywhere that can offer basic cooking classes in or around Sheffield? I do not wish to gain a qualification or anything I simply wish to learn how to cook properly.........All suggestions welcome

Reminds me of the first time I cooked a meal, for my Mothers Birthday. Mushy peas on toast saturated with vinegar and topped with chocy buttons. 6yrs old and it's as clear today as it was then. I even served it her in bed. I can't remember the bit where she ate it though..

Why not start a local group?

CNF- community north forum, send a booklet out with courses of this sort in. Free if on benefits or a small charge although some courses are free to everyone. Not had a booklet through for a while though

The Milestone at Neepsend would allow folks to spend a day helping in the kitchens and serving meals as part of a cookery skills class. The food that you got to take home was certainly good .

I don't know if they still offer this. I'm going back about 18 months.

Its a good idea. When I moved in with him 2 years ago I couldn't boil an egg and hubby was getting rather upset about living on takeaways and bar meals. Leaning how to cook is pretty essential to a relationship.

I found this link. They do run courses each month..

It is just one. They do others about preparing and cooking meat, fish etc etc..

These are monthly sessions that we run in Sharrow for only £2! Each month we teach you the basics of a countries cuisine and you get to eat all of the food that we prepare. They are fun, a great way to meet new people and have been really well attended. We also make sure that there is something for the kids to do if you have children (this week its bread making). Please check out the link below and come along to the old sharrow junior school on Sharrow lane for 6 this thursday. All the food is stuff that is easy to reproduce at home and there are no ingredients that you will struggle to buy in the shop. The sessions are run by a qualified chef with over 12 years experience along with some of the best home cooks in the area.

Enthusiasm, trial and error, a cook book and a large glass of wine are all that it needs!

Even though its 2 yrs old as a fully qualified ex chef i was going to say the same,their are plenty of stuff on you tube to follow.I even only recently found out how chinese take aways/restaurants keep their meat so tender and juicy and that was because i asked at a chinese supermarket and then googled it.

If you want to go just outside Sheffield I know that there also several cookery schools that run cookery classes:

In Tideswell there is the Tideswell School of Food that do a whole series of cookery classes some in the evening too. In Chesterfield there is Coghlans which do a series of day cookery classes and wine tasting events. In Bakewell there is a new place called Hartingtons which also do cookery courses as well as artisan food and drink classes.

Hope this helps!

Don't bother-just get a basic cookbook and start attempting things-when you go wrong you will learn from it....don't start with cakes!

I've had a bad experience with them. I booked a course and they took the money out of my account and extra, then said it was an error because I shared a postcode with another customer of theirs. Why they take money out of accounts based on postcodes - I dunno.

Then they cancelled the course and phoned me at 5pm the day before, when I was home from work. Not enough people to justify running it. I'd booked a holiday and couldn't cancel it. It's their loss, because I shall never go near them again. Awful service.

I went to School of Artisan Food near Worksop and they were wonderful.
