Cooking Courses: Learning with the Experts

Had it with homeschooling? Time to focus those efforts on yourself.  For its latest online course, Learning with Experts has partnered with Tatler to gain unprecedented access to the society mag’s illustrious address book. Bringing together four top chefs, the new immersive learning experience covers a fine dining menu, starting with a lesson in appetisers and bread from Fabric favourite Ollie Dabbous. Next up, Kerth Gumbs of Ormer tackles starters, while main courses come courtesy of Peter Gray at Heston Blumenthal’s The Hind’s Head. Rounding off the menu, chef patissier and host of Bake Off: The Professionals, Benoit Blin from Raymond Blanc’s Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons instructs in the art of dessert. And to tie everything together, each chef recommends matched wines, as suggested by their in-house sommeliers. Perfect your skills now in time to host the ultimate dinner party when restrictions allow.

The experience, which is purchased as a digital voucher, allows participants to log in at their leisure, take the lessons, submit work and receive feedback on their efforts. We think it’s the perfect gift to self, or maybe for a loved one this Valentine’s Day.

Learning with Experts has two course options, Expert at £430 or Peer at £120. The individual lessons are priced at £135 for Expert or £35 for Peer. For more details, see
