Big Green Egg Cooking Classes

Big Green Egg Cooking Classes

To get the most of your Big Green Egg then why not attend a Big Green Egg cooking class. Whether it’s a class at your home or one of our group classes in Cambridge, either way they’re great fun and you will learn how to get so much more from your Egg, cooking in ways you probably hadn’t even thought of as well as covering all of the basics.

Individual classes

Why not treat yourself to a one-on-one Big Green Egg cooking class.

These can be tailored to your needs and run at your home using your Egg, ingredients from your favourite butchers, green grocers and fish mongers and there’s no need to travel.

We can bring an additional smaller Egg’s so we can try out lots of different methods during the day.

These classes are now outsourced to Julie who runs them as we used to.

Group classes

Group Classes

Our favourite way to deliver a class, is as a group. Not only will you learn from us, but you’ll also learn from the other participants.

Our classes are normally for a maximum of 6 people. We spend the day cooking, eating and having fun while learning many different techniques.

We cook steaks, vegetables, roast chicken, sear racks of lamb, smoked chocolate brownies, tarte tatin, plank smoke some fish, have a steak cooking competition with 6 steaks… You’ll not be going home hungry.

In 2021 we have invested in a Renson Pergola with an electric roof that enables us to make the very best of the weather conditions.

Great Private Class

What a great day - enjoyable, fun, varied and very informative!

Thanks Julie for a most wonderful day!

We have an XL BGE and consider ourselves competent cooks on it, cooking all manner of steaks, but also curries, various breads, pizza, etc. But we don't know what we don't know, so booked this one day personal course at home with Julie.

Much better than we could have imagined! Julie produced a huge range of things to cook, including focaccia, tarte tartin, slow cooked beef short ribs, 2 dips (yummy!), steaks many ways, rack of lamb, top rump, salmon on a cedar plank, souvlaki, etc. Was really quite a journey!

And Julie was really helpful and flexible. As we discussed the day, she kept recommending new things to try, which we eagerly accepted. And then, after the day, she e-mailed us all the recipes plus some others that she thought we might like.

Julie even brought her own small egg to supplement our own XL so that we could have two cooking streams on the go at the same time.

Very happy - highly recommended - and will do again!

Great Group Session

What a great cooking class yesterday a lovely bunch of guys to be with and learnt a lot. Whether you have had your egg 3 weeks or 3 years Nic is your man to learn new tricks and tips. Had a great day, just book for the best Green Egg BBQ Class Available. Thanks Nic & Helena.

Thank you so much Peter, it was lovely to meet you. It was a great day, made by the people.

Wow! What a fantastic day. We learnt so much - including things we were doing wrong. Such a relaxing but really informative day. I’d definitely recommend the course to anyone with a Big Green Egg! Food was delicious and Nic and Helena were brilliant hosts. Thank you so much!

Excellent Egg Day

Thanks Nick for a fantastic, informative day of cooking wonderful food on the Egg. We all enjoyed it so much and your calming presence throughout. Hope to do it again soon!

Brilliant day thanks!

Thanks Nic for a brilliant day at our house on Saturday. Having had Green Egg for a while I was worried about that we wouldn’t learn enough, but we so did! The whole day was entertaining and informative. We discovered what we’ve been doing wrong and how to solve some of the cooking problems we sometimes experienced as well as trying new techniques. The food was amazing and it felt like we’d known you for years. The six of us thoroughly enjoyed it and you have inspired a whole new season of cooking. Cheers!

BBQing at its Best!!!

What a fantastic experience! Having recently bought a BGE, Nic came highly recommend. He did not disappoint. Nic talked me through a number of aspects of cooking - from the “science of bbqing” to the practical aspects with tips and hints along the way. The variety of the meats and cooking techniques were brilliant and I look forward to recreating many of these. Our guests had a brilliant time and Nic is very easy going and fun. I’m already looking forward to the next session! Thank you Nic.

Guru it was an absolute pleasure. I'm looking forward to hearing about all your future cooks and your successes with Picanhas. Don't tell any of your neighbours about the cut otherwise that local butcher will work out how much they should be charging.

Excellent day

Really fun and tasty day with Nic. Can't recommend highly enough and really think that it is a must-do if you have bought a Big Green Egg,

 by Peter Jost

We were fortunate enough to host Nic at our house for the class. It was worth every penny and should be a compulsory part of acquiring a BGE to explore its full potential - quite apart from being highly enjoyable and delicious. Nic is a born teacher with huge amounts of energy and knowledge about many aspects of cooking, not just on the Egg. It was great fun, our guests were full of praise and one is now starting to eat meat again! Having said that, the vegetarian courses were equally fabulous. One of the most impressive aspects was the lack sauces or marinades to bring out the meat flavours on the day. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Many thanks, Nic.

Thank you Peter and Alexander, I had a wonderful day too.

Spectacular BBQ session

Thank you for the spectacular bbq session 2 Saturdays ago - you have awoken my bbq mojo

I’ve done a reverse seared rib, redone the lamb rack and exploring fish for this weekend

Thanks so much for having me to cook and the great feedback.

The Best

We have had our Big Green Egg for 5 years and I seriously cannot believe it's taken us this long to book such an incredible session with Nic. It was the best day, so much fun and so much banter. Nic's energy and knowledge was absolutely amazing. If you own and enjoy cooking on a BGE you are genuinely selling yourself short by not arranging a group lesson with him, trust me. Cheers, Nic. Thanks too for the great apron and Thermapen too!!!
