PRIVATE HIRE

Our bespoke teaching kitchen is also available for private hire.

We can cater for classes of up to 30 children or 20 adults and the space can be rented for half-day, a whole day or evening use.

We can host your product launches of research, filming or photo shoots, or you can deliver your own cookery classes. It is also a great venue for hen parties, birthday celebrations and Christmas parties. Our school benefits from an adjoining dining room, outdoor eating area and kitchen garden including a wood oven and large fire pit!

We can also provide bespoke corporate cookery classes, team-building events and corporate entertainment. Please get in touch to discuss what we can offer, or see our corporate page.

Information regarding our National DT Curriculum-based cookery lessons for primary schools can be found on this web page.

Please contact us to find out more.

“It’s challenging to find a venue that marries an interesting space, with a fascinating story and delicious fresh food, but the Hackney School of Food delivers this with aplomb. 

Our small group was positively wowed by this natural hiatus in urban Hackney. We watched wild farm grain flatbreads being cooked on the fire pit, picked edible flowers to decorate our plates and visited the resident chickens padding around the garden. 

Head Food Educator Tom Walker was the perfect, knowledgeable host, who rustled up tasty dishes made with ingredients from the organic garden and replenished our glasses.

Our small group dined al fresco in the sun but the kitchen provides an airy space with plenty of character.  We are already looking at dates for our next visit.”

TEAM BUILDING

At the Hackney School of Food, we believe that cooking together as a team is a fantastic way to connect people. It helps to build confidence, harness creativity and encourages a sense of camaraderie through a shared, interactive experience.  We think It’s the perfect activity for employees needing a morale boost and a great opportunity for schools and companies to show their commitment to the health and well-being of their teams.

All of our lessons are designed to be informative yet informal so you can enjoy yourself whilst you learn how to cook good, nutritious food from around the world, and pick up some professional cooking tips along the way.

Our kitchen and gardens are adaptable to your needs. With 10 cooking stations in the kitchen, we can support up to 30 adults cooking at the same time in teams. We can also extend our capacity by working in our outside prep area, wood oven and fire pits.

We can work with you to tailor sessions to suit your needs, from short classes of an hour-long, up to full-day workshops. We know that getting everyone together in one place can be tricky, so we are pleased to offer a virtual kitchen experience, with our Head Food Educator leading private cookery sessions for your team over Zoom.
