Demuths Cookery School

6 Terrace Walk
Demuths Cookery School


Opened in 2001 Demuths Cookery School, set in the beautiful spa city of Bath, is run by professional chef and restaurateur Rachel Demuth- a pioneer of vegetarian, vegan and organic cooking.

Rachel specialises in unpretentious, creative and healthy food for anyone wishing to learn to cook without fish or meat, and translates the approach to her cookery school.

The courses are highly instructive, hands on courses, catering for mixed abilities- from the greenest beginner to the highly experienced. Courses aim to provide inspiration and ideas that are easily achievable back at home, through a mix of hands-on cooking and demonstration, with an emphasis on simplicity and fun.

Choose from one of more than 20 courses, including Fast and Delicious or Quick and Easy Italian for those short of time. Mediterranean Feast and Flavours of Italy will appeal to those who enjoy zippy, vibrant European lifestyles, whilst Thai, Vietnamese, Mexican, Moorish and Southern Indian may be favoured by the more adventurous worldwide traveller. Supplementary courses will focus on healthy eating and special diets, such as Gluten Free, which will be of particular interest and benefit to celiacs, other courses will appeal to Vegans.

Each course caters for a maximum of 16 people cooking 10 different dishes on each day. At the end of the day students enjoy the food they've created. One-day courses run from 10 a.m. to 4.30pm, and cost £150. Evening Workshops cost £45 from 6.30pm until 9pm. Half Day Workshops & Young Chef workshops cost £75 from 10am until 2pm. Longer courses - prices vary so please see website.

The cookery school also offers private bookings for parties, hen celebrations, corporate and business groups and special events. Catering can be provided for special events such as wine tastings, book launches and product demonstrations.

Adult or children's workshops for birthday parties and celebrations can also be organised.
