Richard Hughes Cookery School Logo

Welcome to the Richard Hughes Cookery School! Be inspired: learn how to cook with professional chefs!

Welcome to The Richard Hughes Cookery School, winner of the first-ever UK Cookery School of the Year award!

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 love sharing our passion for great food with enthusiastic students of all abilities and ages at our beautiful bespoke teaching kitchen based in the heart of Norwich at The Assembly House.

Come and enjoy a 2024 class with us: you could be chocolate creating, bread baking, doughnut frying, afternoon tea making, cake constructing, fish filleting, mastering meat cookery, festive food fashioning...the list goes on!

Whether you’re a complete novice, an enthusiastic amateur cook or a professional chef, we’ve got a course you’ll love taught by Richard or one of our expert chefs who are dedicated to sharing their passion for food with you.

Based at The Assembly House in Norwich in a bespoke teaching kitchen we can also offer you the chance to cook, eat and stay with us in one of the 15 boutique bedrooms just a few feet from where you've been learning brand new skills.

We can’t wait to get cooking in our kitchen and we hope you’ll be joining us! Hughes Cooking? You are!

Love, Richard
