The Michel Roux Jr Cookery School at Cactus Kitchens in South West London offers a welcoming, superbly equipped and stylish teaching kitchen. Tucked under the eaves of a former chapel, we share a home with Cactus TV the independent production company behind numerous popular cooking programmes, including the BBC ONE hit show, Saturday Kitchen Live.
Winner of the 2016 Food & Travel Magazine Cookery School of the Year, we take the mystery out of cooking. Imbued with Michel Roux Jr’s energy and enthusiasm for teaching and inspiring beginners and accomplished cooks alike, our practical, pacey classes cover essential kitchen skills, cooking seasonal menus with Michel’s protégés, to master classes with Michel and a host of renowned chefs. We also host the incredibly popular, A Taste of Saturday Kitchen Experience offering an entertaining, action packed food and wine themed afternoon for fans of the show.
We deliver first-class teaching in a convivial, relaxed environment with plenty of time for tasting and talk. From the moment you put on your apron you’ll be active, engaged, and entertained.
Our day long and half day classes are hands-on, small (12 students), fun and unintimidating. You’ll be taught by friendly Roux-trained chefs with a wealth of experience who work in professional kitchens and cook with flair and passion.
Take home inspiration, new skills, renewed confidence and a fresh perspective on your cooking.
We also offer bespoke corporate team building and a versatile venue for food product launches.
