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 our new addition to the School - Shrager's Patisserie which can be found just a few steps away from the school in the busy Upper Pantiles.
Rosemary and John 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 is a talented and versatile chef and cookery teacher, who loves talking about food as much as she loves cooking it, she is a natural extrovert and a compelling communicator.
Rosemary Shrager and Executive Chef John Rogers have created an exciting programme of Day Courses, Two Days Weekend Courses and Half Day Courses for 2014. 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 Executive Chef John Rogers; where you sit back, relax and watch the magic happen.
