Our Courses

Here is a list of the most frequently asked questions from our students. If your question cannot be answered here you can contact us with your enquiry.

Our Courses:
Will the course suit my abilities?
Most of our courses are structured so we can accommodate students of all abilities and ensure they enjoy a creative cooking session. Only a few of our courses are aimed at either experienced cooks or absolute beginners, but where this is the case it will be stated in the course description.
How much cooking is involved in a day workshop? The day is usually split into two parts. The morning covers demonstrations and talks by the tutor and the afternoon is a practical hands on session. Overall a day workshop lasts around six hours including time for lunch.

Do you cater for vegans, religious diets and/or food allergies? The majority of our courses will contain dishes which are vegan adaptations although sometimes 100% of the recipes on the day cannot be converted. Usually we can accommodate allergies or special religious diets but need to review them on an individual basis to ensure students don't book on an unsuitable course by accident. If you have a food allergy and would like to book you can contact us on 0161 925 2015. Note that you don't need to phone in advance for vegan diets just select the option when registering.

Do you use Fairtrade products? We stock Fairtrade tea and coffee as standard in our school. Whenever possible we try to stock other Fairtrade produce such as sugar and fruit juice.

My partner/friend/relative isn't attending the course but would like to join us for the lunch. Can you accommodate this? They are welcome to wait for you in our lounge and have a tea or coffee, but unfortunately we cannot accommodate guests for lunch on the workshops as places are limited.

Can I come and have a look around the school before booking? Absolutely. If you have never been on a course before and would like to get a feel for the school first just pop by any time between 10am and 4pm Monday to Friday. A member of the Cordon Vert team will show you around our school and lounge.
