About this class

This full day cooking course will transform you’re ideas of Middle Eastern cuisine, steering well clear of regular Middle Eastern restaurant menus. This class will allow you to master the ‘mezze’, a colourful and delicious selection of small plates to accompany a meal or as a light, healthy snack – it’s a no-brainer!

Did you know?

Tabbouleh, Lebanon’s national salad, saw a momentus day in 2009 as 350 people from Alaayen Elementary School, made a 4,324 kilo 16ft wide Tabbouleh, the biggest in history

In this class

You’ll start with recipe demonstrations and skill techniques – working and mixing oils and spices, two familiar ingredients, in a very sophisticated way;

  • saffron fused in rosewater
  • cardamoms ground with cinnamon
  • figs and like a mosaic they come together on a plate

The course unfurls unusual dishes from Syria, Lebanon and Maghreb, which represents the North African countries. This workshop moves away from the normal balanced plated menu and capitalizes on the mezze concept, which is a way of eating and lifestyle within Middle Eastern communities.

There will be a cocktail break in the afternoon and you can opt to dine in and eat the delicious food you have created with the group or take it home to enjoy with family and friends.

Now you can

  • enjoy all your favourite flavours in a healthy and authentic way
  • understand a lifestyle and culture defined by cuisine – even host a middle eastern party!
  • master ‘mezze’ style dishes, perfect for entrees and healthy snacking


A selection of delightful mezze style dishes to wow the family at home.


Middle Eastern food fanatics, vegetarians and vegans, maybe even an Obbyist looking to try new and interesting food experiences… There’s only one way to find out!

We love a bit of vegetarian cooking!

Whether you are a vegetarian, or vegan, or just want to spice things up in the kitchen - London Vegetarian and Vegan School has you covered.

Conveniently located by London Bridge, this boutique school offers some classes and courses that traditional cooking schools don't.

All classes are taught in small sizes so that you get loads of help (even if you are a pro and don't need it, the offer is there!) and advice throughout. This place is all about service and experience, and it shows. The equipment is top-notch and after your daily cooking-workout you are invited to come and hang-out in "the Peacock room", where you can enjoy your tasty food over some Baroque music and a drink (and feel free to invite your friends along too).

Also, you will learn more than just to cook here, as the teachers run you through additional tips and tricks on how to nail a dinner party at home (we are talking about food presentation, lighting, colours, music , the whole shebang 😃 )

The schools patrons are members of the former German monarchy.
