For all your culinary needs
For all your culinary needs
Well run professional kitchens are some of the cleanest, most sanitised environments outside of the clinical world.
Not only do we wash hands regularly throughout the day we use specialised cleaners and sanitisers that are effective in killing 99.8% of the Covid 19 Virus.
We by law have to follow all HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) and have to have all the necessary food hygiene certificates.
Nothing is 100% effective and until a comprehensive vaccine is found we can only follow best practice procedures.
From your initial consultation we will make you aware of our responsibilities as well as yours with regard to minimising any risk.
Prior to your arrival, all contact points, equipment and the entire kitchen will be cleaned and sanitised using clinical grade disinfectant and sanitiser.
You will be asked to wash your hands upon arrival ( a practice that existed before Covid 19 arrived) and this will be repeated as is normal in professional kitchens.
Freshly laundered aprons and chef jackets (if desired) will be provided.
We will also provide masks, gloves and hand sanitiser as necessary.
In order to maximise your safety we will only be running ONE class per day to ensure the safest possible environment.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
Your safety is our main concern.
The BCS team
Whether you are a complete beginner or a competent cook, we pride ourselves on structuring a programme that will best suit your ability whilst providing comprehensive support along the way. If you are looking for a one off cookery class in the comfort of your home, arranging an event or party, corporate team building days or something more specialised, we are able to tailor our classes to individual needs and expertise.
Once a course or session is agreed upon we will provide written recipes, food procurement (with the client if desired), instruction and full access to our chefs for further help if required. We will also provide all equipment and consumables.
We use only the finest local ingredients but we also understand working within a budget. Upon contact we aim to tailor our courses to fulfil your needs. Our initial consultation is free, so please get in touch and let us help you with your culinary requirements!
We offer bespoke corporate team building days which will include a complimentary glass of champagne upon arrival and wine/beer served as the day progresses. We believe food is a great leveller and has the ability to bring us closer due to the shared experience of cooking, eating and discussion. In a relaxed and informal atmosphere we will make sure you have the perfect day away. Please get in touch with any queries you may have.
