Festive Party Booking 2022

Here at The Dundee Cooking Academy, we understand fully that no one got a decent Christmas outing last year, if at all. That’s why we have decided to open up pretty much the entire month of December for festive group bookings.

Christmas Party at the Dundee Cooking Academy

The session format is an introduction and tour of the building. Followed by a full, informative demonstration of your chosen dish by our experienced yet ‘full of nonsense’ Chef Tutor in a Santa hat. Then on to the workstations to create your masterpiece.

The dining table will be set so once you have finished cooking, your group can sit down and enjoy your creations together.

Wine and soft drinks will be offered throughout the session.

Session options

Chicken Tikka Masala

(gluten free) (vegetarian option available)

Tikka Masala was in fact invented in Glasgow and slowly gaining its popularity at Christmas time, with lots of people now opting for an Indian Curry over the usual traditional roasts. Get your festive party booked in for a great fun, flavoursome session full of good food and plenty of vino.


Beef Wellington

Here at the Academy we believe this is the perfect Christmas main course. In this session we break tradition and replace the usual mushroom duxelle with amazing black pudding. Who doesn’t love the sound of 28 day aged fillet steak, black pudding, buttery puff pastry and a red wine, port and shallot jus. Our chef tutor will break this classic down for you into nice easy steps to follow so your whole party will create a perfect masterpiece.


Balmoral Venison Loin

(gluten free)

Venison loin straight from the Balmoral estate, aged for 28 days in a Himalayan salt chamber and then cooked perfectly by….YOU. Whilst having amazing fun in this session you will also gain fantastic skills. There is potato rosti, beautiful garnishes and one of the tastiest sauces imaginable. A perfect session to get the gang together for a great day out.


Shellfish Risotto

(gluten free) (vegetarian option available)

Perfect risotto can be achieved by anyone and doesn’t just belong on a restaurant menu. We will show you how. Let’s not stop there though, let’s use a shellfish bisque, hand dived scallops, king prawns and truffle to create the most amazing risotto you have ever tasted. A definite “compliments to the chef” style session.


King Prawn Massaman Curry

(gluten free) (vegetarian option available)

In this session you will create a spectacular Thai curry paste from scratch using lots of amazing ingredients such as fresh chillies, ginger, lemongrass, tamarind and coriander to name a few. You will then go on to create a king prawn curry that will top any Thai curry you have tasted and what’s better is that the recipe is yours to make time and time again. Proper tasty food.


Seared Monkfish

(gluten free)

In this session we get a hold of some beautiful Scottish mussels and create a fantastic, fragrant sauce that we use to dress a perfectly seared piece of gorgeous monkfish tail. This session really is a seafood lovers paradise with flavours that could gain anyone there 17th Michelin Star……maybe! Very simple cooking, done right in this session.
