The school has really good facilities for demos and practical work and the teachers, Colette and Joanne were very welcoming and open to questions and interacted well with the attendees. I attended the patisserie course as I wanted to learn puff pastry. The course ran at a very easy pace and it was interesting to learn some new techniques and... More

I did the evening class for beginners, and I really enjoyed. It is relaxing and you take home the food you prepared. I learnt new recipes, new techniques. I'm planning to attend the intermediate class as well.

I was given this a a present, and it was well worth it. Pleasant surroundings, a wealth of recipes, and excellent unobtrusive instruction by knowledgeable staff. As a complete novice to Thai cookery before I went I now feel that I will be able to expand beyond the recipes taught as I feel I have an understanding beyond the recipes... More

I did the Teenagers One Week Course last week and it was amazing. I've always loved cooking and I enjoyed the variation of simple dishes we made(all of which were delicious!) The class was made up of about 15(split into two groups). My group was taught by Tor who was a friendly and talented chef with great enthusiasm. She was... More

Our travel companions came across the Edinburgh New Town Cookery School on a morning walk and went inside to check it out. They found out there would be a Scottish Beer & Food pairing class that evening, so they signed us all up. And I was so happy they did! As tourists, I feel what better way to learn about... More

Wonderful thai cookery course over an entire day - what you cook you eat so it pays to listen! But great fun, exceptional teachers, lovely ingredients, central location and well worth the price. From what I understand there are many other types of courses but the Thai one was really good and the food delicious! I am still using my... More

I did a baking course here last week and thoroughly enjoyed my day. Victoria was very friendly and helpful and full of interesting tips. Lunch was provided and was also very good. In the confirmation letter, we were asked to bring our own aprons and containers to take everything away which I hadn't bothered to read...................my fault, but an apron... More

Staying in New Town

Neighbourhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
