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.

We know that some of you would love to get your young ones into the kitchen, so why not bring them along to one of our ‘Junior Gourmet’ workshops. We’re passionate about introducing real food and real cooking to educate and inspire the younger generation and that’s why we’ve specially designed this course for them. They’ll be taken on culinary journey from their own, fully equipped workstation and own ingredients to produce a two course meal focusing on a healthy and balanced diet. Our young chefs will eat some of their creations in class and take some of their culinary delights home to share with the rest of the family. They will also receive a recipe booklet so dishes can be easily replicated at home.
