The gourmet heart of Royal Tunbridge Wells can be found in the lower Pantiles – the home of Rosemary Shrager’s Cookery School.
The School is housed within The Corn Exchange, a beautiful three-storey regency building, with a Domestic and Professional School, event spaces for Private Celebrations and Corporate Functions.
Every aspect of the school has been personally designed to Rosemary’s exacting specifications; and no expense has been spared to provide students with both up-to-the minute kitchen technology and luxurious styles.
We are delighted to present a new addition to the School - our luxurious,new suite on the second floor, The Dining Room, perfect for private celebrations and corporate functions.
Rosemary and her team firmly believe in supporting local suppliers and produce, sourcing the best of the seasons crops, while keeping the carbon footprint and food miles low.
Rosemary Shrager and her team has created an exciting programme of Day Courses and Two Days Weekend Courses for 2015.
Courses are suitable for home cooks at every level, from the complete novice to the confident and highly skilled.
Join us on Friday or Saturday evenings for a 5-course tasting menu dinner. Chef’s table is an exclusive demonstration dining experience run by Head Chef Iain More.

Enjoy a day discovering the staples of Italian cooking. We will create light and fluffy gnocchi that you will fall in love with, master perfect pasta dough and create a mouth watering risotto. At the end of the course you will be able to confidently replicate the dishes and techniques you have learned at home, giving you a foundation of core Italian cookery skills from which you can build a range of further dishes.

When summer finally arrives, all you want to do is spend time in the garden with your family and friends. We've here to talk you through some of our favourite summer dishes, showing you how to cook a seasonal entertaining menu that will impress your guests with presentation, flavour and timing. We’ll look at every stage focusing on key ingredients and preparation techniques that allow you more time entertaining rather than spending your time in the kitchen - with minimal effort and maximum effect! The course provides students with a delicious cooking repertoire, everything you need for a delectable Summer.
