Restaurant Experience

Our most popular cookery and dining experience, you’re the Chef & Diner!

You’ll be greeted with Prosecco and canapés on arrival as you and your group get to meet the chefs you’ll be working with in the kitchen. You’ll have two hours to master your three course meal, we’ll show you all the tricks of the trade. Before you dine, you’ll be encouraged to show your creative flair when plating up to restaurant standards. Then sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labour in our dining area.

Please note, all tuition, ingredients, dining and drinks (wine, beer & soft drinks) are included in the cover charge – you just need to arrive with an appetite for fun and good food at Brighton Cookery School, we’ll take care of the rest.

I arranged this for a team event at Christmas time and it was so much fun. Everyone learnt a lot and it was such a fun, relaxed enjoyable day. The team still talk about how good it was! The guys looked after us really well with a constant supply of drinks and tasty food. I would definitely recommend going. Everything was very smooth to arrange with amazing communication and they catered to everyone’s needs. Thanks so much for a memorable time!

Fun and tasty team building event

Any one who is interested in cooking will love this experience. The crew are happy, involving and confident in everything that goes on in the kitchen. Not only do you learn some excellent skills, but you get to eat fresh and delicious food once you’ve made it. Fantastic experience, would highly recommend.

Great way to spend the day

Thinking of exciting activities isn’t easy when you have to do it 4 times a year. Brighton Cookery School was recommended to me, so I decided to give it a shot. The team loved it! So different to the usual karting etc. They haven’t stopped talking about it since and a couple of them even have plans to revisit with their partners. Ben is a great host/teacher. He’s very knowledgeable and makes the session interactive and educational. We were sent the recipes after the session so we can impress family and friends with our new found cooking skills. Overall, an amazing evening. I’d recommend this to anyone, whether it’s a stag/hen, or a team building activity. Book it!

Great Team Activity

Brighton cookery school is a fantastic, fun way to spend an evening learning to cook quality food (and drinking wine) taught by local food legend- Chef Messa Ben. Trés bon!

Looking for an excellent night out or teambuilding opportunity?

As the Mother of the Bride, please pass on my thanks for a really superb evening.   I’ve recently discussed other similar events and ours was far superior – and Auntie Teresa was impressed that the wine kept flowing throughout. Two of our hens have since been busy and will have soon have saved the cost of their lessons with their savings in buying a whole bird and chopping and freezing. Thank you once again for making our hen party such a success, 100% satisfaction from an uneasy to please group, is really an achievement thank you.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for today, what an experience for everyone. It’s not easy doing such a lesson/demonstration for any group of children, let alone a group with serious visual impairments, but it was awesome. They all felt so included and were all completely engaged. Wonderful.

We had a brilliant time at the Brighton Cookery School last weekend. Chef Ben was really relaxed and pitched the lesson perfectly; he really got the balance between learning something and having some fun. We cooked 3 courses and I definitely learned loads, Ben is really knowledgeable and a biology background gives everything he tells you even more credit. I can’t recommend Brighton Cookery School enough, it was brilliant. Our meals were really delicious – the aim of the game, non?

I just wanted to drop you and your magnificent team a note to say a huge THANK YOU for making Tara’s hen party cooking session so brilliantly fun. We all came out feeling like we’d learned something (I’ve since filleted fish twice now!) and we had a fantastic time. The day was perfectly structured, and you played such a big part in making it feel both special and memorable.
