Whether you want to make the perfect casserole or master a magnificent banquet, AGA approved cookery schools provide courses at all levels to help you make the most of your AGA cooker's performance.
The warm and welcoming new AGA Sheffield concept store offers a wide selection of cookery demonstrations and courses using the AGA heat-storage cooker. Its varied programme of both demonstrations and hands-on Master Class events include basic AGA demonstrations, which show just how easy cooking on the AGA heat-storage cooker is while inspiration can be found in more diverse events such as sausage or chocolate making.
The events are friendly, informative and excellent value for money. Food and wine are served at every evening event and lunch is provided at every Master Class event. For a more detailed description of all the events download a brochure.

Situated in the bustling and historic market town of Hadleigh, near Ipswich, Suffolk, The Cooking Experience is the brainchild of Mark and Annie David who set it up in their own home 11 years ago. Mark started his career as a trainee chef in a hot sweaty hotel kitchen in Leeds where he learned professional cookery skills over a very hot range! He eventually moved out front to be nearer the customers! His further career included 3 years at Waltons resturant Chelsea followed by 3 years with the legendary Egon Ronay and then Restaurant Manager for Robert Carrier in Suffolk. He now cooks with small groups in his bright, cheerful kitchen complete with 2 AGA cookers.
The Cooking Experience offers Day Courses, all Hands-On and brimming with recipes to add to your repertoire! All comers are welcome whether they have an AGA or not, so whilst we cook on the AGA cookers and conventional ovens, the recipes are designed for all cookers.

The atmosphere is relaxed and informal at The Cooking Experience, and there is plenty of time for chat and questions. All ages welcome and ability is not measured!
Gift Vouchers are available all year round, a Day Course makes a great gift for anyone.
MARK DAVID is a seasoned AGA and General Cookery Demonstrator and operates a Home Service. If you have a decent size kitchen, and you can whistle up a group of, say 6/7 friends, then Mark will spend the day with you planning and preparing a dinner party for that evening. We then cook the meal together and create other delicous dishes. Ideas flow, and you are left exhausted but with a new set of recipes!
