We mix people with
food and fun!

As a community cooking school we proudly deliver fun, informative, hands-on cooking classes which are affordable and open to ALL in the Southern Highlands.

Our story

The Cook’s Cooking School is a community cooking school owned and operated by Your Angel Charity. We are passionate about building community and confidence in home-cooks to prepare affordable fresh food from home.

Located in the heart of the Southern Highlands, our purpose-built kitchen provides a relaxed and welcoming environment for home-cooks to come together, have a little fun, learn new recipes and prepare meals to take home and share with loved ones.

Our Keep Calm Recipe Kit program brings The Cook’s Cooking School home with convenient, hearty home-cooked meal kits to prepare from the comfort of your own kitchen.

As a charitable service we do not seek to profit from our community programs. Instead we merely subsidise costs by opening access to all for a minimal fee with Your Angel sponsorship (free access) available to people in need of financial or social support, so everyone can join the food fun!

Something for Everyone

As a community cooking school we are proud to offer something for everyone with a mix of classes & home-cooking solutions available to all!


Community Classes

Our fun, affordable, hands-on home-cooking classes are open to anyone interested in mixing food with fun. All are welcome as we come together in our purpose-built kitchen to learn how to prepare fresh, healthy food on a budget in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. All meals made during class go home with their cook!

Kid Friendly Classes

Why should adults have all the fun? Through-out the year we offer kid-friendly cooking classes geared towards small-hands-on cooking. Kids, aged 6yrs +, can cook with their favourite adult during specified Family Classes or they can leave their adults at the door for a full day of kitchen fun in our kids-only school holiday classes.

Keep Calm Recipe Kits

Learn how to make hearty home-cooked meals from scratch in the comfort of your own kitchen with our Keep Calm recipe kits. With visual recipe cards and portioned ingredients for a generous main meal and sweet baked treat, our Keep Calm recipe kits feed 4-6 people and take the stress out of home-cooking.

Private groups & team building

Our kitchen is perfect for private groups and team building events. We love hosting private classes, they’re so much fun! Unfortunately we cannot afford to deliver these at community class prices. Rest assured, private groups and team building events are available, albeit at a premium, minimum spend applies.
