    Did you know?

    According to the Food Network, British women do not attempt to cook their first Christmas meal until the age of 34. This survey states that almost half of women said they felt a real sense of satisfaction when finally dishing up the Christmas dinner while 28% of British men admit that their partner's dinner is better than their mother's. Controversial!

    About your host, The Avenue Cookery School

    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.
