Lessons from the best cooking tutors in Glasgow

Why you should take cooking lessons in Glasgow

If we’re not careful, in Glasgow (or Glaschu in Scottish Gaelic), as anywhere else, our daily routine can quickly become quite tedious if we don’t fill our days with cooking classes.

Otherwise, it’s easy to get stuck in the Glasgow rut of eating the same soulless ready meals, full of additives, that you can just as easily find in Edinburgh, Liverpool, Leeds or Birmingham.

Thus, it is important to know how to cook, all by yourself in your own kitchen, by opening up to cuisines from all over the world, while also by sticking to traditional local specialties. This newfound knowledge will constitute the fundamental basics with which you’ll be able to slowly master more modern and original recipes.

Shame on the Glaswegian students who only eat pasta! Say no to all of the dads out there who don’t even know how to boil an egg! Forget those Glasgow mums who have turned away from classic traditions like the Sunday roast! And, instead, cultivate a unique specialty that will make mouths water, all while benefitting from a healthy and balanced diet, thanks to a cooking workshop.

Also, a good cooking school in Glasgow with a high-quality chef will introduce you to the best places to find great seasonal products to concoct the most delicious dishes.

If your goal is to eventually win MasterChef, you have all the more reason to consider training first with private cooking classes. Who knows, maybe you’ll end up working for Gordon Ramsay one day!

A culinary workshop could also be ideal if what you’re looking for is a way to impress your friends and family. It can also make for a great present, if your nephew’s birthday is coming up and you’ve run out of ideas. Because you can also find cooking classes for kids, which will also do a great service to his parents. Having a great chef at home can be a huge advantage in Glasgow…

Having an expert chef at home can benefit adults and children alike by reducing the widespread consumption of take-out food.

And maybe the film Ratatouille will inspire some of our younger Glaswegians to become pizzaiolos, master confectioners, Michelin-starred chefs, or master cooks at one of the city’s luxury hotels: the options are endless in Glasgow, where the tourism sector is growing year after year.

Get to know Glasgow beyond your cooking classes

At-home cooking classes in Glasgow are definitely worthwhile, especially when paired with oenology classes (if only to better understand the best food and wine pairings within the culinary arts) and pastry lessons.

In any case, don’t hesitate to ask for a Smartbox for your next anniversary or big event. That way, you’ll be able to discover some of the Michelin-starred restaurants in the area, and, who knows, maybe you can try the 8 that are located in Scotland! And don’t fall for the classic tourist traps, but rather make sure you indulge in the city’s more popular restaurants and bars, like Ox and Finch and Crabshakk. Eating well is a must to properly discover a city, especially if you then hope to cook like a real local chef.

From Glasgow Green and the Barrowland Ballroom to Kelvingrove Park and the Glasgow Botanical Gardens, and throughout the entire city centre, you’ll be sure to keep busy eating through the long winter months, thanks to the wide variety of popular food joints that populate the streets of Glasgow.

The Gannet, Mother India, Crabshakk and Cail Bruich all provide quality dining experiences and are referenced in all of the local food guides. If you’re willing to drive a bit for a great food experience, then take a stroll up through Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park to Inver, where you’ll find great Scottish food in a modern Scandinavian setting.

A different drive, towards the east to St. Andrews this time, will take you to Cromars, which was recently voted the best fish & chip shop in Scotland. You can top off the excursion with a quick stop in Dundee for dessert at Folk Café, where you’ll find some of the best vegan pastries in the country.

You’ll sure be full when you’re back home in Glasgow, but it’s nothing a nice walk around Kelvingrove Park won’t be able to fix.

Glasgow also holds many restaurants where you can organise a team seminar for your company, a cookbook festival, a children’s show, afterwork drinks, a formal reception, a cooking workshop, a kid’s birthday, a sensory workshop or even the cooking lab of your dreams…

In Glasgow, learning to cook is easy to do. You can find workshops for kids, mom and daughter baking lessons, and 100 % adult lessons.

Cooking is at once child's play and adult joy. And cooking done with care is an act of love.

Cooking classes in Glasgow: how to find them

That’s right, that is the whole point when you finally decide to make an effort and start cooking in Glasgow! Lucky for you, we have a nice variety of workshops and classes for you.

Specialty chefs in the area, who propose cooking classes, can specialise in food and wine pairing, bread-making, Chinese cuisine (yum, pork buns…), Japanese cuisine and sushi-making, vegetarian cuisine (or vegan), haute cuisine, organic cooking, Indian cuisine, Thai cuisine, Spanish cuisine, Italian cuisine, etc. In short, you’re sure to find the course for you in Glasgow!

At-home cooking classes with a pastry chef, private classes with a professional chef, baking workshops, individual lessons with an expert sommelier, culinary activities in small groups, easy cooking workshops for kids, BTEC Home cooking skills, etc.

A cooking workshop can take many forms! But make sure you plan ahead, because in a populous city like Glasgow, the different cooking instructors’ classes can quickly fill up.

I’m sure you’ll have no trouble cooking some simple recipes. Let’s list a couple of the most popular local dishes in Glasgow: macaroni cheese pie, Scotch pie, mince and tatties, haggis, Scottish porridge, cock-a-leekie soup, Cullen skink, stovies (although everyone has their own recipe), shortbread, Dundee cake, cranachan, etc.

Activities for children and teens or private lessons for adults: English lessons, math, foreign languages for children and adults, give your cravings free reign in Glasgow! A foreign language lesson just for you in the privacy of your own home is more or less what we’re offering with the Superprof concept!

This type of learning, in Glasgow, is much more beneficial and effective than taking online cooking classes.

Cooking classes in Glasgow: some background

The United Kingdom (or Great Britain) is made up of three different countries - Scotland, Wales and England,- each with its own unique history and culture. This diversity in culture contributes to the richness of the UK’s culinary traditions. Amidst these traditions, Scottish cuisine shines through as being rich in earthy flavours and hearty dishes.

Home to great natural produce, from the Angus steak to fresh seafood, as well as very unnatural snacks, such as the deep-fried Mars bar, the Scots benefit from a widely varied cuisine.

There are many culinary specialties attributed to Scotland. And famous chefs like Neil Forbes, Tom Kitchin and the widely popular Gordon Ramsay have helped popularise the region’s rich culinary heritage.

While the Scots are famous for fairly polarising dishes, such as the national dish, haggis, the country also knows how to make good use of its high quality produce.

Taking a cooking class in Glasgow, with local independent cooks, will teach you how to make use of what the luscious Scottish landscapes have to offer, and you’ll learn to prepare delicious local recipes.

Making shortbread from scratch, Dundee cake or cranachan, learning about the different cheeses in the area (traditional Ayrshire Dunlop cheese, Orkney Scottish Island cheddar, etc.), learning how to make Cullen skink, how to assemble a Scotch egg, how to properly cook an Aberdeen Angus steak, etc.

Local cuisine in Glasgow uses local produce that you’ll be able to find and use in your new cooking lessons. But there’s also a large influence coming from Middle Eastern, Italian, Indian and Chinese cultures, that has opened Scottish cuisine up to new products and spices. Up to you to explore the richness of the country’s diverse food culture -- so get cooking!
