The Guide

  1. Book a place on the course you both like. There are so many cooking classes these days that it’s easy to do a search on the internet. However, always check to make sure that they get good reviews or where possible go by personal, trusted recommendations of friends and family.
  2. If you’re planning this as a gift you can always choose a cookery experience through Virgin Experience Days, Experience Mad, Activity Superstore, and Great Days Out in Ireland. This would make a lovely day for you both to enjoy together. Prices of cookery classes do vary quite a bit so do your research to find something that fits your budget.
  3. Choose to cook food that you’re both going to like, so check with your date. If they’re a vegetarian for instance, you will want a class that they are obviously going to enjoy.
  4. Make sure you leave plenty of time to book for you both. They can fill up spaces pretty quickly as cookery classes are a popular choice, so make sure you bear this in mind.
  5. Dress smart casual, you’re going to be cooking so you don’t want to be too dressed up – aim for a happy medium.
  6. enjoy the experience – both cooking, learning together and enjoying the product of your day. It’s a really fun way to spend time together – and sample each other’s cooking. The route to many people’s hearts is through their stomach!!
