Philleigh Way Cookery School

Learn how to cook like a Cornwall native--or how to make many other types of cuisine--at this charming culinary school by the river Fal.

A Family Affair

The Philleigh Way Cookery School is run by two brothers-in-law, one of whom is part of a family that has lived in Cornwall for generations. Therefore, guests come to this cooking school for both its heart and its pedigree. Philleigh Way offers classes in local cuisine and much more.

Cook Like the Cornish

The Philleigh Way curriculum features dozens of hands-on courses. Visitors can learn to cook authentic Cornish dishes like pasties and clotted cream in the “Cornwall in a Day” course. But there are also courses on how to make sushi and Indian food, along with many others.

The courses take several hours, and they typically cost £50-£150 per person. Aspiring chefs can book classes in advance online. What’s more, Philleigh Way also hosts various dining events–monthly supper clubs and their famous Woodfired Sessions on spring and summer evenings.
