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.
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.

Soufflés never fail to impress, and this class will ensure perfect results every time. We will teach you to make a classic panade based soufflé, quick and easy meringue-based soufflés that can be baked from frozen as well as twice baked soufflés that can be made the day before and reheated. You will leave feeling confident that you can whip up a soufflé in minutes using just store cupboard ingredients.
