The cook School

the place for classes, CELEBRATIONS, events and experiences

Set high, looking out to the valley of the ancient Wyre Forest, The Cook School Bewdley offers a unique setting for a wide range of cooking-related experiences. The state-of-the-art facilities and beautiful location inspire creativity, learning and enjoyment.

The Cook School Bewdley is hosted by the popular husband and wife team Daren and Louise Bale. Their impressive partnership covers over 20 years of working together in fine dining, hotels, restaurants and outside catering within their respective areas of expertise, Daren leading in the kitchen supported by his “wingman” Louise, in front of house.

We use only high-quality ingredients. Our kitchen garden is the source of much of our produce and can be included in our activities, for example, handpicking your herbs, salad leaves and vegetables for a cookery class. We may even inspire you to grow your own!

Our programme of activities is wide and flexible. The schedule of day and evening classes caters for all ages and abilities; each will teach you how to prepare and cook delicious dishes to be enjoyed with your family and friends. And we can also provide bespoke classes to meet the needs of your group.

As well as our bookable courses and dinners, we offer a wide range of bespoke and personalised events. These include celebration dinners, “demo and dine”, children’s parties and civilised frolicsome hen and stag parties. We will work with you to agree on the date, time, programme and cost for each of these, with as much or as little hands-on involvement as you like.
