Garden Museum Cooking Club


Book Now



Enjoy cooking and meeting other people? Come and join the popular adults’ weekly Garden Museum Cooking Club, taking place every Thursday morning from 18th January to 8th February.

“the course has been extremely informative and given me lots of new excellent vegetable dishes.  The space is great and I have thoroughly enjoyed the sessions”.  

A book club for cooks!  The focus of the Garden Museum cooking club this term is cookbooks.  You’ll be led through the recipes under the guidance of Food Learning Officer Ceri and pick up tips on knife skills, flavour pairings, how to adapt a recipe with the seasons, or for what might also be in your kitchen cupboard.  More than anything the Garden Museum cooking club is a chance to get together in the kitchen to cook and then eat together.

The full course schedule is below;
