Brand New! Cook To Go Evening Classes.

We all love a good takeaway.  Let’s be honest, most of us will even tolerate a bad one from time to time.

But at Ashburton Cookery School we like to strive for something a little bit special. So we are pleased to announce 3 brand new evening classes for lovers of takeaway food.

During these fun 3-hour courses, you will complete a beautiful meal for two, that you can then take home.

Starting in the new year, we will be offering a choice of Indian, Italian and Thai menus.

Our expert chefs will, as always, guide you through creating these beautiful meals from scratch, with the highest quality ingredients available.

Those of you who are tempted by our Indian To Go course will get to leave with the following delights:

  • Chapatti bread
  • Kori Ghassi – Chicken curry with curry leaves, chill and coconut milk
  • Aloo Gobi – Potato and cauliflower curry
  • Pilau basmati rice

If authentic Thai food is more your thing, the menu we have to lure you is thus:

  • Prawn Spring Rolls
  • Panang Curry with Pork and Peanuts
  • Cucumber Salad with Sour Chilli Dressing
  • Jasmin rice

Or do you prefer the simple beauty of Italian cooking?  The freshest ingredients you can find will go into these amazing dishes:

  • Linguine with Seared Tuna, Fresh Pesto and Green Olives
  • Italian Meatballs with San Marzano Tomato Sauce
  • Tiramisu



Aloo Gobi- One of the dishes our chefs are busy perfecting for you as we speak.


It is important to us that when you leave, you take with you the skills and confidence to replicate these mini-masterpieces in your own kitchen.  So the next time you reach for that takeaway menu, you might think to yourself ‘you know what, I think I can do better’.
