Learn with experienced chefs & food educators

We offer many types of cookery classes including free skills classes for the local community, and ticketed culinary experiences for anyone who would like to support us while while learning a new dish.

All of our classes and workshops focus on sharing the stories behind our food as well as giving attendees the skills to create beautiful dishes to share with family and friends.

Our current offering of community classes is listed on this page. Please sign up by filling in this form and indicating the classes you are interested in attending.

We often collaborate with other Craigmillar organisations to offer additional cooking classes.

We also host ticketed dinners for Edinburgh Food Social supporters. Our dinners are hugely popular and welcome guests to experience delicious dishes in the company of like-minded people, often with guests including growers and food activists.

Join us for a fantastic experience that will leave you totally inspired.
