The Cookery School
One of Scotland's oldest cook schools, The Cookery School moved to excellent facilities around the corner from their old home in the Peckhams building in January 2014. They offer over 40 courses on everything from seafood to stocks, sauces and desserts, with themes as diverse as modern Scottish, Indian, pasta, chocolates, macarons and sugarcraft. One-day and evening classes are available, and there are also wine-tasting and cocktail mixology nights. Most of the courses are aimed at adult cooks, but longer five-day courses – for both adults and kids – are held in the summertime, and kid's classes including chocolate, baking and cookery run throughout the year. It also runs corporate and team-building courses, and hen parties are welcome too.
