Cookery Classes at The Academy Restaurant
The Academy Restaurant is more than just an excellent place to order food – we also offer a number of different events and activities for parties and conferences.
We offer more than just exceptional Scottish cuisine – we also have a fully equipped training kitchen. The Gannochy Trust has supported our Culinary Arts Centre, making The Academy Restaurant a unique centre for eating and cooking in Hillington and in Refrewshire. Catering is the cornerstone of The Experience, and our induction kitchen provides us with the opportunity for 30 chefs to work together at the one time.
Our state of the art facilities combined with our goal to pass on great cooking experience to anyone who wants to learn, is one of the many things that sets The Academy Restaurant apart from other Scottish restaurants.
So, if you are having a party or corporate event at The Experience, we offer a number of cookery classes where you and your friends can hone your cooking skills and learn at the hands of our Master Chef in our state of the art kitchen. If you’re looking for a fun, creative, delicious day out why not combine cooking with your karting? Instead of ordering food, why not create it for yourself?
Master Chef Challenge (Up to 12 people)
Your party will be greeted with a coffee and pastry, and then introduced to our Chef who will outline the session ahead.
After being shown some basic kitchen skills, and going through hygiene instructions, everyone will be given a tour of the kitchen and the equipment that will be available for use.
You will then be split into teams and shown a specially created seasonal larder of fresh meat, fish, vegetables, herbs and spices. You will then be allowed a short amount of time to create a menu with as much or as little help from our Chef as needed.
With our chef on hand at all times, teams will create their own two course meal which they will then sit down and enjoy. To make it more competitive, you can opt to have your dishes judged not only by our Chef by but by other teams!
The flexibility of the event means that we can offer ingredients for specific cuisine such as tapas, Pan Asian or traditional Scottish.
PRICE: £39 per person
Culinary Creations (Up to 12 people)
After starting the day with a coffee and sticky bun, you will meet your chef for the day. You will then don hats and aprons and split into teams. You will be challenged to either create your own pasta (stretching out the longest pasta ribbon you can), make bread from scratch, prepare and bake a pizza, design and decorate cupcakes, or even build a croquembouche, (a caramel glazed and decorated profiterole tower to those not in the know).
Creations can be added or tweaked as necessary to suit your requirements and can be judged to add an element of competition.
PRICE: £29 per person
