SALFOOD Cookery School

Young student chef

Cooking is, without a doubt, one of the most important skills a person can ever learn and share. Once someone has that knowledge, that's it - they're set for life.

SALFOOD Cookery School has been set up, as we want University of Salford students to cook great food that tastes amazing, saves money and, in the long run, will help you lead a happier, healthier life. If you want to learn how to cook, our four week cookery course is a great place to start. You will be in a class of like-minded people who, like you, want to learn the core skills in the kitchen so they can cook with confidence.

If you want to focus on a particularly skills such as bread making, cupcake decorating then our masterclasses is an unmissable experience for enthusiastic cooks of all abilities. These fun, practical, hands-on cooking classes are the perfect treat for the keen amateur chef.

If we can’t get you in our kitchen, then be sure to attend our cookery demonstrations and learn from our chefs and ask them any questions you may have.
