Delia Smith was one of the first television celebrity chefs. She is Britain’s bestselling cookery writer with over 21 million cookbooks sold worldwide. She started life off as a food writer for the Daily Mirror in 1969. Towards the end of the 1990s she commenced work on Delia’s How to Cook, publishing three separate volumes and the accompanying TV series. After a five year break concentrating on Norwich City Football Club (where she is a director) and Canary Catering, Delia returned triumphant in 2008 with a new BBC TV series and the fastest selling cookery book of all time ‘Delia’s How to Cheat at Cooking‘ – which has sold over 800,000 copies to date. In 2009 Delia’s How to Cook was re-released as a single book of over 700 pages, with 350 recipes and step-by-step photography, covering every technique you will ever need from how to boil an egg to Risotto Carbonara. Truly a great book for both a beginner and someone who wants to brush up on both basics and more involved cooking.

Runs cooking classes throughout the year at its purpose-built cooking studios. Classes are run in the mornings and evenings 7 days a week (subject to a minimum of 12 people). The venue is also popular for corporate events and private functions – team building cooking classes, birthdays, kitchen teas, and dinner parties with a difference.
Our classes are hands-on, where every person gets to participate in the preparation of the dishes. They are also a lot of fun where you not only learn new skills, but get to meet people with similar interests. For corporate groups and teambuilding cooking classes these events are a novel way of creating staff interaction or entertaining clients.
