One of York’s finest culinary ventures brought to you by Splendid Hospitality: a learning experience for people with passion.

In March 2019, we opened our state-of-the-art cookery school with the aim to fulfil the nation’s desire to learn to cook. We have now created a place where people can relax, learn, and above all, have fun.

Offering a variety of courses which are designed for people of all skill levels, our cookery school is a fun and unique experience – the ideal place to learn about fine cuisine. From modern British dishes to authentic Asian cuisines, you’ll be inspired by the range of recipes you’ll be able to recreate for yourself, friends and family at home.


We have a range of full-day, half-day and evening courses available which will enable you to enhance your cooking skills under the guidance of our expert chef tutors. Our immersive courses are also perfect for corporate events and team-building exercises. These can be booked as standalone sessions or paired with the on-site meeting rooms and conference facilities.
