Learn to cook like a pro under the watchful eye of Nick Nairn and his team

A fantastic present for a budding chef
A fantastic present for a budding chef

Cooking is the new rock ‘n’ roll.

Hundreds of TV hours are dedicated to the subject every week and magazines are full of mouth-watering recipes for readers to try at home.

Yet some people still don’t have the confidence to be able to invite relatives and friends round for dinner, while others don’t know where to begin when it comes to making a simple supper for themselves.

In April 2000 Nick Nairn set up his own cook school with one very simple aim – to get more people cooking by giving them the skills necessary to be able to turn great raw ingredients into great food.

Nick said: “Back in the cook school’s early days, we were teaching three to four people at a time, and just like the Cook School garden, we’ve grown and developed organically.

“Today, we’ve got two great Cook School locations and an amazing team of 21 foodie ambassadors, trained to excite people about fantastic food.

“In basic facts and figures, we’ve had 58,000 people take part in lessons and have the capacity across our two locations to teach 78 people every day – whether it’s a full-on foodie day or a three-hour ‘Quick Cook’ session.

“Combine these numbers with our teaching know-how and I know we’re making a difference.”

The Nick Nairn Cookery Schools in Aberdeen and Port of Menteith offer the very best: in tuition, produce, facilities and locations.

“Whatever class you choose, we know you’ll be glad you spent the time with us – it’s why we’ve been voted to be in the top five cookery schools in the UK in the British Cookery School Awards,”said Nick.

His TV career spans two decades and it shows in every class. A cooking experience at a Nick Nairn cook school caters for every level and every taste. With gift cards available for a two-hour, three-hour, one-day, or one-day with Nick cooking experience the recipient gets to choose a time, location and menu to suit them.

The Nick Nairn Cook School, Pizza Bar & Cafe can be found at 15 Back Wynd, right in the heart of the city of Aberdeen. Here there’s a range of classes and gift cards available starting from £59 including:
