Muddy says: One of the leading cookery schools in Oxfordshire, with three lovely venues and a wide variety of courses on offer, from Japanese and Moroccan through to modern British. Highly recommended.
Muddy says: Bang on trend for more veg-conscious eating, Food From 4 is a vegetarian and vegan cookery school based at owner Ian Fischer's home in Chalfont St Peter. He offers group or private tuition and can also come to you.
Muddy says: As someone who spends parties shamelessly hanging around the kitchen to get first dibs on the canapés, I've got a lot of love for these Chesham luxe nibble workshops.
Muddy says: If your culinary skills need work (hey, what's wrong with baked beans on toast?), it's time to go back to school. But this is fun school where you get to scoff amazing food.
