Cookery School

Blackfriars’ Cookery School is one of the leading independent purpose-built culinary training facilities in Newcastle. Below are the types of events we run at the school.

We’re delighted to have won a silver award for ‘Best Experience’ in the North of England Tourism awards. This is thanks to the hard work by all the team.
