Tante Marie's Cooking School - Cookery School

Food and Travel Review

Food and Travel Review February 2010Walk up the leafy path to this Victoria mansion in Woking and you might think you've arrived at a therapeutic retreat. Step inside to find a bustling cooking school; Tante Marie has schooled both students eager to embark on culinary careers and home cooks honing their skills for over 50 years. The same bubbly and inspiring teachers teach more leisurely day classes, so you get all of their knowledge but with none of the pressure. Whether you're a seasoned enthusiast wishing to perfect an impossibly fluffy souffle or an absolute beginner, the range of classes caters to anyone keen to learn along with a scattering of laughter. Try your hand at the treasury of recipes that has made Tante Marie famous, and you'll have the chance to devour your creations too - be it crispy shrimps with sweet-chilli sauce or steak with brandy cream. Opt for a week-long course and you'll be cooking like Gordon Ramsay, who, incidentally, is a co-owner. One-day classes from £170.
