Welcome to Rick Stein’s Cookery School, Padstow

I really think everyone cooks better at my cookery school. This year we celebrate our 20th anniversary. I started it to give the chefs at The Seafood Restaurant a bit more intensive training preparing and cooking fish and shellfish. To keep the lecturers, all chefs from the restaurant, gainfully employed I ran a few courses for aspiring cooks, it was an instant success with the public and now it’s hard to find slots for the chefs but the principle remains the same, teaching by chefs who really know what they’re doing.

All the dishes featured are from Rick’s travels around the world including courses from Secret FranceIndian Seafood, Far Eastern, Mexican and of course fish and shellfish to name a few.

But it’s not just about seafood, we do lots of other interesting day courses, one dish workshops, tasting evenings, children’s cookery and a rather fun ‘Cook your own dinner party’ evening. We also offer private coures, events and dinner parties for special celebrations and corporate events.

See you soon, Rick.
