Using the very best ingredients, we will show you how easy it is to plan a fortnight’s menu for your whole family. The premise of this class is organization – we’ll show you that the best recipes can be cooked in advance and bulked up in quantity so that you can enjoy several meals from one cooking session.
Let the freezer become your best friend! We’ll show you how to make a cottage pie, chilli con carne and a lasagna – all from one classic sauce. Another – a tomato sauce – can be used for spaghetti, pizza and meatballs. Oven fried chicken and crispy wedge potatoes and freezable fishcakes will also be on the menu. And we’ll show you how to make and freeze pesto and how to make a classic macaroni cheese. You will leave feeling confident and inspired – and with a great repertoire to see you through many family suppers! Organic wines will accompany the meal. A Cookery School breakfast will welcome you on arrival.

Cookery School's approach to food is simple, modern and imaginative. We love sharing our ideas for delicious home-cooking and are constantly finding fresh sources of inspiration to bring to our classes. At Cookery School the atmosphere is fun and informal. We provide the skills necessary to become a confident and independent cook and all our classes have a very high proportion of hands on practice. There is always plenty of opportunity to ask questions and gain understanding of supposedly demanding techniques. Every session involves tasting all the food that has been made, further enhancing your ability to become a skilled home cook.
We're very excited to be launching The Mumsnet Academy - a brand new enterprise which aims to curate a portfolio of fantastic courses to fit around family commitments and busy working lives.
A while back we asked you what courses you would like and the programme of masterclasses, workshops, and events we've come up with is a reflection of your responses.
To help us deliver the programme we have enlisted some fabulous experts in a range of fields as well as teaming up with some great partners who have a reputation for delivering high-quality, life-changing courses.
This collaborative approach allows us to offer a programme across a range of different subjects including entrepreneurship, business, technology, social media, blogging, history of art, creative writing, publishing, gardening, philosophy, finance, fashion as well as courses concerned with self-improvement and the concept of learning to live wisely and well. Some of these courses will be skill-based, while others will explore concepts, theory and ideas.
If we've missed something you think is a must, fear not, we will be adding classes to our portfolio all the time so please drop us a line or complete the suggestion box on our website.
One of the things that we felt was important was to ensure our Academy courses are available across the UK and we are pleased to announce that we will be running events in Birmingham, Edinburgh, London and Manchester from day one. We are also keen to develop some online courses and hope to announce the first of these later this year.
While our courses are scheduled at times which are more convenient for those with young children, they are absolutely open to everyone. Ultimately, the overall aim of the Mumsnet Academy is to bring people together in a thought-provoking and fulfilling environment where there is a universal willingness to explore ideas, develop skills, and learn from experts as well from each other.
