Trader workshops

Upcoming workshops and cookery classes in the Cookhouse

Regulars at Cookbook Club (and the eagle-eyed among you) will already be aware that one of the many strings to Borough’s bow is the Cookhouse: a beautiful, intimate kitchen-diner space, with views over the Market. Since its opening in 2015, it’s been home not only to the Cookbook Club but a roster of outside events, including supper clubs, cookery classes and workshops for groups of up to 15 people.

Over the next few months, various Borough traders will be using the space to host a series of events:

Meze masterclasses at Arabica
2nd February—11th May (various dates)

After starting the day with pastries and coffee at Arabica Bar & Kitchen, guests will be taken on a whistle-stop tour of the Market, during which chef and owner James Walters will pick up seasonal produce for the subsequent meze masterclass. The day will conclude with everyone enjoying the food they’ve cooked, served with selected regional wines. Each class will focus on a particular theme—such as vegetarian, modern, Lebanese or Turkish meze—and run on a Saturday. Please note, for each date there is an AM and PM session: afternoon sessions commence in the Cookhouse and do not include welcome coffee and pastries, or the Market tour (prices vary accordingly).

Oliveology continues its series of interactive cookery classes, this time round with their very own resident chef Lida Papamatthaiaki, who will be joining Marianna for a workshop inspired by the Greek lenten diet.
