We are currently looking at how we can operate safely and continue to do all the things we love in our cookery school; cooking and eating together as group in this intimate cellar space. Our upcoming classes will remain on pause for the time being, however, if you have any queries or would like to be added to a waiting list, please email

Thank you all for your support and cooperation at this time.

HH&Co Backstage - The Cookery School

Hey good lookin, whatcha got cookin?

Drawing on Angela and Luke’s fresh, confident approach to cooking and eating and their signature home-cooked style, HH&Co backstage offers a unique, fun and informal way of learning how to cook delicious food!

Suitable for everyone from complete beginners to budding masterchefs, our hands-on, relaxed style aims to improve your culinary skills and give you bags of inspiration to go home and get cooking. 

We are not ones to take ourselves too seriously, so the aim is to get stuck in and have fun whatever your ability! So why not give something new a go? HH&Co Backstage is not your average classroom! A little bit of chaos and a lot of creation is positively encouraged!
