    After this week-long course you will be able to work in a chalet, on a yacht, or cook for families in their holiday homes. Students are required to have a basic knowledge of cooking beforehand (for the basics, check out The Beginner Booking Course). This course is designed to teach students a combination of the important theoretical stuff (e.g. recipes, food pairing, etc.) as well as the hands on stuff (such as knife skills and presentation).


    Did you know

    The chef’s tall hat or toque traditionally had 100 pleats in it to represent the number of ways you could cook an egg. These hats were adopted by the inventors of French haute cuisine, Marie-Antoine Caréme and Auguste Escoffier, to make it clear just who was boss – literally “chef” – in the kitchen.

    The Avenue Cookery School is a family-run leaning business based in Wandsworth in South West London. The owner and head chef Diana began her career as a chalet chef before discovering her entrepreneurial side and founding a number of specialist food ventures. Infamously, Diana taught at The Grange Cookery School in Somerset for 7 years before starting The Avenue, where she has been ever since.

    Diana is supported by her son Richard and daughter Sophie.

    The food at The Avenue can be considered classic chic but full of fun twists and turns (ranging from macaroon masterclasses to gluten free baking to simple supper classes). All the classes are taught in the school's beautiful kitchen facilities in a relaxed environment.
