Welcome to the Richard Hughes Cookery School

When you learn to cook at the Richard Hughes Cookery School, you’re learning from the very best: we won the top prize at the first-ever national British Cookery School Awards!

Judges were bowled over by our hands-on, friendly, enthusiastic and fact-packed courses and praised us for the wide variety of courses we offer that are suitable for home cooks of all ages and abilities.

We cook together, learn together, laugh together and - because we’re passionate about sharing our love of food with everyone - our students keep coming back for more.

So if you’ve visited us before and would like a repeat visit, you can be sure that our 2019 courses are packed with all-new content and recipes, plus a chance to cook with our new experts joining us at the school.

Our stunning school – overlooking the famous fountain at The Assembly House and in a room filled with vintage kitchenalia and French copper pans – also gives us the space to offer a host of personalised events.

From corporate team-building days to hen parties, birthday parties to baby showers or just a really memorable night out for a select group of friends, we can add a flavour of something really spectacular to your special occasion.

We’re sure you will find the perfect course for you, or a wonderfully tasteful gift for a loved one in. We’d love to see you in our kitchen this year – Hughes cooking? You are!
