Nick is an enthusiastic, knowledgable and very helpful teacher. I learned a few crucial preparation and cooking tips which will greatly enhance my cooking skills. I’m now considering which course to do next.

Station House Cookery School is a unique experience in Dumfries and Galloway.  Developed in the beautiful train station buildings in the picturesque fishing town of Kirkcudbright, Nick and the team offer a wide range of cookery classes for all ages and tastes delivered by passionate and knowledgeable tutors.  There’s a great focus on supporting local producers and all ingredients are sourced as ethically as possible. 

From just £15 you can join in with a cookery demonstration of your choice.  In the comfort of the Station House Demonstration Room you watch as an array of delicious dishes are cooked right in front of you.  You have the chance to ask questions and interact with the tutors.  All factsheets, recipes and delicious tasters are included. 

Or you can choose either a half day or full day cookery class which involves firstly the demonstration where you can see all the recipes cooked before you in the newly outfitted bespoke demonstration room. 

Then you move into the student kitchens where you have your own workstation, hob and oven to cook the recipes yourselves under the expert guidance of your tutor. 

All recipes, utensils and ingredients are supplied.   Once you have cooked the dishes you sit down for a delicious lunch with your fellow students.
