This week I had the opportunity to attend an exclusive preview of Jamie Oliver Cookery School located at the back of Jamie's Italian in Westfield Shepherds Bush in London.
The pasta master class was presented by Gennaro Contaldo, Italian chef, restaurateur, and partner with fellow Italian chef Antonio Carluccio and their BBC Two television series Two Greedy Italians. We also had a glimpse of Jamie Oliver himself just before entering the cookery school. The event started with a super fun demo by Gennaro followed by a hands-on session of making filled pasta.
They have a few courses going at the cookery school from pasta making to ethnic cuisines courses to sharpen your knife skills. There's something for everyone under the supervision of very knowledgeable chefs. Don't have any cooking skills? No matter; the cookery school's chefs will teach in a safe and entertaining manner.
The place looks fantastic and is very well-equipped with some nice touches. It is light, bright, and on brand. Head to their site for more info on courses and gift vouchers: Jamie Oliver Cookery School
