Become a confident, creative cook at home
The cookery school has gone online! We have taken all of the good stuff from the kitchen and put it into an awesome online cookery club for kids and teens where students cook a meal for their family at a weekly live workshop. We are a Approved Activity Provider for cookery skills for students working towards their bronze, silver or gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. Our kitchen will reopen in May for in-person workshops, starting with our regular students and private classes, with our popular Saturday classes returning in autumn 2021.
What We Do
We teach our students to become really confident cooks through interactive online workshops and fantastic, hands-on classes at our Sussex cookery school. We focus on classic skills, taught through vibrant and interesting recipes that you will cook again and again at home.
The Cookery School is temporarily closed but we will be reopening as soon as we can so why not treat yourself to something to look forward to this autumn …
Welcome to The Round Table. I’m Chloe Coker, I am a professional chef, cookery teacher and food writer. I have been teaching cookery for nine years now, from running really good quality hands-on workshops and private parties, to demonstration kitchens at the Excel Centre and how to videos for GoodHousekeepingUK. I set up The Round Table as a relaxed and accessible place for people to learn about food and cooking from well trained chefs and artisan producers. We teach really good hands-on cookery classes with a focus on real food – great local produce, classic skills and achievable recipes. Our catering has the same feel – relaxed, intimate, and delicious.
Our purpose built teaching kitchen is based on an organic working farm in rural mid-Sussex. Originally a pigsty, it has been lovingly restored and converted into a great little teaching space with lots of light and character, perfect for hands on classes and also for cookery parties. We even have a sunny little terrace for barbecuing and outside eating. We are lucky to have a fantastic local butcher on the farm and two biodynamic farm shops up the road. We are easily reached from Haywards Heath, Forest Row, East Grinstead, Tunbridge Wells and have major mainline stations within a 20 minute taxi ride.
