We will be contacting those with bookings over the coming weeks(please bear with us as we are a very small team) to offer you new dates for these classes. Please also feel free to look at our website to choose a date that suits you it doesn’t have to be the same course and let us know by emailing it over. We will then send you a confirmation email for your new booking.

    The Jericho Kitchen Cookery School

    Welcome to Jericho Kitchen Cookery School. If you haven’t heard about us yet we are a young, vibrant and enthusiastic cookery school that opened its doors in January 2015.

    We have grown over the last couple of years, so much so that we are moving from our current location in Warborough to our new purpose built space on the Nuneham Estate, Nuneham Courtney OX44 9PQ – just 10 minutes from the centre of Oxford and on a regular bus route – X39 and X40 which goes from Oxford to Reading every 30 minutes.

    We also use a venue in Oxford – Will’s Deli on Woodstock Road for classes which we hold on a Wednesday or Thursday evening such as sushi, Japanese Vegetarian, bread and pasta making classes. New for 2020 we are starting foraging with Justine Gens our local expert on all things foraging including with cooking, learning about kombucha, making lotions and balms and healing yourself with herbs! Every Friday night we will be hosting different events including takeaway Pizza, Sicilian Street Food, Olive Oil tastings and cheese and wine events all in the brand news re-invented Will’s Deli!

    Our ethos is simple – we love good food and want to share our passion for it with everyone. Our classes vary from food fermentation, Tapas, Moroccan, traditional British, French, cheese and bread making to name but a few. All our teachers are highly experienced and skilled and who share our love for imparting knowledge through informative but more importantly fun classes.

    Our classes are very much hands-on, fun, informative and relaxed we provide all the ingredients, aprons and recipe packs all you have to do is enjoy. We cook for about 2 hours then everyone sits down to enjoy the fruits of their labour! Time to relax and ask as many questions as you like! ! !

    We look forward to meeting you soon.

    What happens when you come to one of our classes?

    All our classes are very informal, relaxed and hands-on, we feel that people learn more when they are enjoying themselves! You can get as involved as you like our teachers are highly experienced and there to guide you throughout the lesson. We are not a formal individual stations school we like to work around our central island or big table so although you won’t make every dish individually you will see everything that is going on!

    Arrive, meet and greet

    When you arrive you will be greeted by myself, or one of the cookery school assistants. Tea, coffee and mineral water will be available to you whilst you get to know your fellow students. We provide you with all the ingredients, an apron and recipes that we send you before the class to keep for future use.

    Meet your teacher

    Next you meet your teacher or teachers! They will tell you a bit about themselves and also explain about the recipes, and some history behind it too sometimes, that you will be recreating together.

    The fun part!

    We lay out all the ingredients on the table for you to see and then tend to work around the central island so that everyone can see what is happening. You won’t cook every single dish, we share out tasks and the teacher will stop and answer questions at any time that you may have as the session progresses. Sessions are also packed with top tips and advice to help you when you return home. One student exclaimed that one tip that was given was worth the price of the class alone! !

    The best part!

    Finally when everything is ready you will sit down and enjoy the fruits of your labour around the table and at this point your teacher will join you for any further questions that you may have. Like any good meal a lively conversation is so much part of the enjoyment so don’t be shy ask away! !

    We are lucky to work with the following people!

    We also cater for corporate events and private parties. Get in touch, we would love to hear from you and come and join us on our food adventure! We hope that you visit us soon but do please do call us on 07753 316680 or email us on if you have any queries!
