British Cookery Schools Week

British Cookery Schools Week‘Cook well for less’
Sustainable Cooking, Healthy Eating.


This October sees the inaugural launch of ‘British Cookery Schools Week’. A culmination of years of activity hosted and promoted by leading cookery schools, to support both new intakes for professional cookery courses and a busy time of year for domestic focused cookery courses, with students keen to gain new kitchen skills at all levels.

ICSA are delighted to be leading this initiative with our membership and generous supporters. 

Eating healthily during a cost-of-living crisis 

Over 25 cookery schools across the UK are joining forces this October to raise awareness of the cost-of-cooking-crisis and its impact on food bills and eating habits.

The Independent Cookery School Association (ICSA) accredited schools and others will be sharing tips on eating well for less and cooking more efficiently and sustainably at home as part of a new annual awareness event, British Cookery Schools Week.

As food production, preparation and distribution costs soar, artisans, manufacturers and retailers at all levels are being forced to raise their prices, and British households are acutely feeling the pinch.

Cooking and eating well on a shrinking budget is a challenge, and in some cases it’s even changing our regular eating habits. Throughout British Cookery Schools Week, participating cookery schools will be sharing advice and insights on how UK households can cook more efficiently and eat more sustainably, both at home and at work.

ICSA’s President, Stella West-Harling and founder of Ashburton Cookery School who is now head of Feeding Devon, part of the Feeding Britain charity network said: “So many of us have become more concerned about the cost of food as all our bills increase, and when you’re on a tight budget it’s really hard to think about cooking and eating healthily.  This year’s National Cookery Schools Week, hosted by ICSA, aims to directly address this challenge by sharing budget-friendly sustainable kitchen tips from across our cookery school network, to help fight the Cost-Of-Cooking-Crisis we all face.”

The schools will be sharing information and hosting free online courses and workshops covering everything from managing food waste and reducing energy costs in the kitchen, to cooking on a budget for health, nutrition and wellbeing.
