Got a voucher for my birthday and booked the fish course at Food at 52 and I couldn't recommend it enough! Great, relaxed atmosphere, amazing teachers and wonderful food! I went on my own but was made to feel very welcome! Very personal, none corporate. Loved every minute!

I spent a lovely evening at Food at 52 with colleagues, the host's are amazing and told us all about the food and recipes before we started cooking. They made it really easy and simple for us to cook a delicious meal, and the kitchen where we all cooked and ate together is a lovely room with lots of great... More

The cooking experience my boyfriend and I had at Food at 52 was wonderful. We had a full day of Thai cooking and wine drinking.
