Our cookery school

We started teaching people to use the Big Green Egg in 2013. Initially, we ran demos and private cooking classes. In 2019, we opened our cookery school at home, the first Big Green Egg cookery school in the UK, allowing us to pass on our knowledge and passion with an unparalleled hands-on format. Since then, we’ve sold out every class we’ve run and welcomed customers to our home, many of whom we would now consider great friends.

We’ve designed our classes to be intimate, normally just six people, so you get the most from them. And you’ll be doing the cooking, unlike other schools where you can spend the whole day watching a chef demo. We teach you how to use your grill, cook delicious but simple, achievable recipes, and leave with the confidence to use your Egg, to wow your friends and family.

Our shop

We believe our honest advice is second to none. Nic worked at Big Green Egg, and has used the products almost daily for a decade. Is there anyone better to help you make the correct choice when buying your Egg?

We have also selected a complimentary range of products we use ourselves. If a product doesn’t meet our high standards, we won’t sell it.

From incredible outdoor kitchens and ovens, to the simple tools that make cooking easier and more pleasurable, we have everything you need.

Our engagement with the community

Our ethos is all about giving back to the community.

We have developed possibly the largest repository of tried and tested recipes for the Big Green Egg and other grills.

We have also run a series of live online cooks since 2020. They are free to join, and a great inspiration for many, on what they can cook on their Big Green Egg. Why not join us?
