Private cookery lessons

Learn to cook

Flexible, friendly cookery lessons, just for you. We can start anywhere - the absolute basics, your favourite flavours, the seasons... the choice is yours! Gain confidence, try new things and learn new skills - all at a pace to suit you.

For everyone

Children, teens, students or grown-ups... if you're curious and want to learn in your own time and away from any pressure or potential embarrassment, private lessons are for you. Perhaps you have skill gaps you'd like to fill, or want to be ready for a new phase in your life. Some people have a new family member who's dairy intolerant, or would like a more eco-conscious diet. All things we can work on.

Your teacher

Shaun Nixon

Friendly and creative, Shaun - the "Cook in the North" - loves to cook. First inspired as a young boy in his grandma's kitchen, he enjoys sharing his passion for food.

Relaxed and fun

Shaun is a dad to two young girls, a primary school governor and spent a decade working at the Woodland Trust, creating fun Nature Detectives learning activities for families and schools.

His favourite film - or at least the one that he quotes the most - is Disney's Ratatouille. Anyone can cook!
