A charitable cookery school has opened its doors in Yorkshire

TV chefs to offer masterclasses with all profits going to a Leeds charity

LEEDS Cookery School is offering cookery classes and teambuilding packages to food lovers and all profits are to go to a local charity that supports vulnerable people in Leeds.

TV chefs, local experts and resident chefs will also offer specialist masterclasses.

The school is based in the Old Fire Station in East Leeds. The venue has retained many of its original features, from fire buckets creatively used as light fittings to the original 80-year-old Leeds flooring and wall tiles.

It is a social enterprise, set up by Leeds charity Zest-Health for Life. The initiative will help the charity become less dependent on local authority funding as public-sector budgets continue to shrink.

The charity aims to promote healthier lifestyles through supporting and developing cooking skills; improve physical and mental wellbeing, help people create pathways to healthier choices; prevent social isolation; build people’s skills and confidence.

“Our aim is to provide a range of both premium speciality classes and affordable beginner’s classes in partnership with Jamie’s Ministry of Food Leeds,” said chief exec of Zest Health for Life Susie Brown.

“We’ll be using fresh, sustainable and, where possible, locally sourced ingredients whilst at the same time generating valuable income to support our community work.”
Leeds Cookery School classes are available to book now, and gift vouchers are also available, alongside corporate event packages and venue hire.
