15 years ago, the idea of London as the world’s culinary capital would have been laughable. Today, it’s almost universally acknowledged. Whatever else the excesses of the 80s brought, they created a knowledge of, and demand for, fine food that has blossomed into a wonderful culinary culture in London. Here you’ll find the finest chefs, the most exquisite menus – and a chance to learn some chef skills yourself.
Even if you find it a struggle not to burn toast, you can learn to cook with the best. That doesn’t mean spending hours over ingredients you’ve never even heard of, either. The chefs carefully select dishes that you’ll be able to prepare and cook easily at home, with your new-found skills.
