Seasonal Workshops

Sadly, due to covid-19, Cook Folk’s face to face Seasonal Workshops are not currently available.

However, in the meantime, you can still access Cook Folk workshops online…

Festive Entertaining Cooking Workshop

Festive Cooking Workshop

After the year we’ve had we all need something to look forward to! Eating well and looking after ourselves but still feeling indulgent and fun has to be the order of the day – and a little bit of Christmas cheer certainly won’t go amiss in the Cook Folk kitchen.

Join Cook Folk founder Louisa Chapman-Andrews for a 90 minute festive entertaining workshop creating comforting yet healthy Christmas dishes to help ring in the festive season and help blow away the cobwebs of 2020 past…

Whether it’s a pared down occasion or a full family riot, you still want food that looks impressive and feels special, but that you can pull together in moments to create show stopping dishes fit for the big day and the wonderful days in the run up to it all.

The festive workshop will showcase the best that’s in season, demonstrating fresh new ways to use these wonderful ingredients in versatile recipes that can be adapted for any occasion; whether (virtual!) canapés parties, cozy suppers or Christmas Day accompaniments.

The workshop will:

  • Show you fresh ways to prepare and cook seasonal ingredients that will help to transform your home cooking.
  • Raise your ingredients knowledge so you can confidently celebrate the freshness of new season produce; parsnips, brussels, horseradish, chestnuts, cranberries, clementines, pomegranates, to name but a few.
  • Demonstrate clever tips and techniques to up your kitchen skills and unleash your creative flair.
    Help you rediscover ways to shop, plan, cook and entertain to make cooking a genuine joy.

Notes, recipes and guidance will be sent ahead of the session so you can immerse yourself before the workshop begins. As Cook Folk workshops are action packed and filled with content, it is not recommended that participants attempt to cook along. Much better to get comfortable with a cup of tea and your notes and let Louisa do all the hard work!

Vegan Masterclass New Dates!

I am very pleased to announce that the first of my online ‘Learn to Love’ Masterclasses went live in September.

My next Vegan Masterclass runs in November 2020.

You can now book your place on the Vegan workshop at Eventbrite.

This Vegan workshop was first run early last February as a private session and I have taken excerpts from it to create an online version with bags of recipes, hints, tips and advice on creating delicious vegan dishes at home.

Have a read about how the event went here and here.
The ‘Learn to Love’ series is dedicated to helping you fall in love with food and cooking no matter the limitations.

Look out for new masterclasses in the series including; low sugar, low carb, low calorie and gluten free – all coming soon.

“Wow! Thank you Cook Folk for such an informative and fun vegan cooking masterclass! Am not a vegan but am vegan curious, wanted to learn not to be scared of lentils! Louisa from Cook Folk nails a 90 minute master class! If you are even a little vegan curious I definitely recommend her classes!”

Amy Roberton, Acton

“Louisa seamlessly took us through a variety of recipes in such an engaging and accessible way. A simple step by step guide to creating delicious, flavoursome dishes which not only look amazing but taste it too!”

Saffron Darby, Bristol

“The vegan workshop was so amazing and such an indulgent treat. I was worried that I would miss being in your kitchen and actually doing the cooking but the two camera angles were perfectly placed and close enough to the action that I honestly felt like I was there with you. I really enjoyed being able to relax and watch from the sofa and can’t believe how much you covered in the time….Covid does not need to hold you back, what a successful online workshop. Loved every minute thank you so much.”

Georgina Robertson, GR Nutrition

The masterclasses will all be £36 each and I will also have a downloadable recording of each for £30 on my website, which you can pick up and watch anytime should you not be able to make the live workshop.

Low Sugar Masterclass Coming Soon!

Second in Cook Folk’s Learn to Love series the Low Sugar workshop will show you how to use whole foods to add sweetness to your life, creating balance and addressing cravings with simple natural ingredients.

Having now had three lessons with Louisa, our home cooked meals have been transformed – my family are eating better than ever. Louisa is a great cook, great teacher and delight to be with whilst you hone your culinary skills – I can’t recommend her enough.

James Lohan, Founder, Mr & Mrs Smith

Having a couple of lessons with Louisa has literally been life changing! I can now cook delicious, healthy meals and find entertaining super easy rather than before when I never knew what to cook– I would definitely recommend a few sessions with her – my fridge and freezer are now always full with yummy things, and no longer does it get to lunch and I am stuck for what to cook. She is AMAZING – it was the one of the best Christmas presents I have ever had.

Emmie Faust, Feel Good Marketing, W3

I really enjoyed our few hours together it was a really lovely relaxed experience. Along with your amazing endless knowledge and tips, I also loved your enthusiasm, which was contagious.

Sonya Matthews, W3

Louisa spent two hours with me in my kitchen teaching me how to create a larder and a fridge that work to support recipe-free and hassle-free cooking for a busy life. She used the time to showcase foundational cooking skills so that I had a variety of dishes that I would be able to recreate with my own style over the weeks to come. I’m excited to check out the spice blends she recommended and to continue to make simple food more easily.

Jo Sumner, Jo Sumner Wellbeing

Louisa gave me permission to try without embarrassment or fear of failure…lesson notes, which included how to create a fridge and pantry toolkit, where to shop, which oil to use, what pulses should be soaked, how to make a dressing and a myriad of ingredient combination suggestions. I am indebted to her.
