Cookery Classes


Another year is nearly over and I want to thank everyone who came along to my classes during the year. I love the atmosphere, the fun, the feedback on the dishes and all the wonderful people that I meet through the classes.

I’m just finishing up the last few bits and pieces before Christmas but don’t worry I’m planning next year’s classes as I go! First up will be a series of three ‘Lighter Cooking’ classes to get us all back on track after the Festive indulgences! These will run from the 16th to the 30th January and will have lots of healthy dishes with no alcohol, cream, butter….

Then in February we’ll be getting romantic with Valentine Dishes and I’ll be re-running classes like ‘Quick and Easy Dinners’ and possibly ‘Delectable Desserts’

All suggestions for classes welcome as I’d love to hear what you want to cook.


In the meantime I’d like to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and an even better New Year!

Happy Cooking !

Yvonne ūüôā

Cookery classes in Hey Pesto! are demo style which have a habit of developing into social evenings! Yvonne cooks a number of dishes over 2 hours and then everyone sits round the table and enjoys the fruits of her labours.
