YOU’LL REMEMBER THE SMELLS, THE SOUNDS, AND THE SIMMERS MOST…
Amidst the organised culinary chaos and getting the kids to wash their flour-caked hands for the umpteenth time, they’ll be developing a skill that can be honed and passed on in the years to come.
Founder of The Woodland Kitchen, Helen remembers learning to make pastry with her Gran as if it was yesterday. They both ended up in fits of giggles after making up a new dance so her Gran could show her how to crimp the edge of her pasty without blocking her view! It’s these moments that we fondly cherish; and this Cookery School is now inviting you to experience the same.
There’s a range of easy menus for children to get stuck into and who knows? There may be an undiscovered Jamie Oliver amongst you!
Mealtime should be a joyful experience and part of that fun is preparing your own home cooked food with family and friends. There’s nothing quite like a kitchen filled with the aromas of cooking, conversation, and laughter.
Cooking classes are taught by our highly- talented Head Chef Dan and we also have a panel of experts who we invite to teach specialty subjects throughout the year for those that want to specialise in certain areas like Pastry, Indian Spices, and Asado outdoor cookery.
You’ll be guided in a friendly and stress-free environment. Full day courses will include lunch around the huge Oak table, allowing you to share stories and unforgettable experiences along the way.

MEET YOUR HEAD CHEF AND TUTOR
I was lucky to grow up with a Dad who was a fisherman in St.Ives. Most of my childhood was spent learning how to pick crab claws, and barbecuing fresh mackerel in the summer evenings.
In fact, most of my favourite memories involve me cooking with my family – excitedly tasting our creations as we went along, and experimenting with different flavours. I’ve always believed that since cooking is something we have to do anyway (because, we all need to eat, right?) – why not make it as enjoyable as possible?!
After completing my studies in catering in Camborne, and winning Student of the Year for 3 consecutive years, I trained at The Seafood Cafe in St. Ives, where I learnt most of my craft. These days, I’m keen to show other aspiring chefs that cooking needn’t be a thing of fear. I mean, what’s the worst that can happen? Your end result doesn’t taste good? That’s when we keep modifying and having fun until we get it right!
So, please be welcomed into our Cookery School with open and extremely capable hands. Whatever level you’re at, I’ll ensure that you’re 100% comfortable and continuously learning in a way that suits you best.
Remember, we offer courses for all kinds of chefs. Whether it’s for children, adult beginners, or even chefs who are a little bit more adventurous – we’ve got you covered! You can choose to polish-up your knife skills, take up a course on street food, or learn more about beautiful flavour combinations… The culinary world is your oyster!
Join us on our next course, and never feel like cooking is a chore again.
I can’t wait to see you there.
A FUN WAY TO LEARN
Richard and Helen are the third generation of the family to live and work at Sunrise, and they are keen to share this beautiful landscape with guests and their families. As they are passionate about wildlife and conserving nature for future generations, Helen says ‘It’s a pure joy to welcome our visitors to this little slice of Eden’.
The Woodland Kitchen Cookery School offers inspiring and practical cookery courses.
Our hands-on cookery courses are a great way to learn a new skill or inspire and give you confidence in the kitchen, guided by our instructors who are qualified chefs with many years of training and experience in some of the top kitchens. We have created an informal and fun environment taking you through each recipe step by step.
At the Woodland Kitchen, we believe it is important to get children in the kitchen and to give them an understanding of where their food comes from. These easy menus get them cooking their own meals and appreciate fresh home cooked meals.
At the Woodland Kitchen, we are passionate about food and believe cooking should be fun.
We look forward to welcoming you to class!
“Cooking is at once child’s play and adult joy.”
