Corporate Events

We can tailor your corporate food and wine event to suit your requirements.

At Edinburgh New Town Cookery School we can offer a wide range of corporate cooking classes and events centred on food and wine. It can be as formal or relaxed as you like.

I just wanted to thank you for a fantastic evening on Friday. The team really enjoyed themselves, I was very proud of our teams cooking upstairs and it was very moving to hear them present their dishes and the stories behind them.

Your team were fantastic, very calm and organised!

Team Building Cookery Classes

Come to our beautiful kitchens at 7 Queen Street and have a cookery lesson. These will generally take place during the week but can be arranged for weekends. During this class you will cook a three-course lunch or dinner, which you will enjoy with wine in our dining room.

You will have the fun of doing the cooking but none of the “pain” involved in washing up. The event will usually take 3 – 3 ½ hours and can be booked during the day or in the evening. The minimum number for the class is 8 and the maximum 20. If you would like to include a bit of friendly competition we can arrange for the teams to be judged and awarded prizes for best team, best presentation etc.

Prices on application. Every cook will be able to take their recipes home with them.

“I have to say a big thank you, as everyone thought your Generation Game was fantastic! I loved the little bags you gave away and was very envious of the fabulous looking cupcakes they had! It sounds as if it went really well and everyone thought it was such fun! I liked the sound of the conveyor belt too! Very inventive!”
