Time-honoured methods of food preservation are again enticing the curious into the kitchen.

What a joy to be able to use food at its’ prime,
to preserve and enjoy another time. (I hope you like my little rhyme!)

There is something really satisfying about popping-the-lid from a jar of something you have made. Jams, chutneys, ferments or pickles. I’d even go so far to say it’s a sort of nurturing feeling plus you feel good because nothing need go to waste.

Many of these concoctions whilst fun to make, offer a real ‘food as good medicine’ bonus. Find out how you can improve your gut health which in turn improves your general wellbeing. They are delicious too!


In every class, our talented team are committed to ensuring you learn, and are inspired by, their teaching. We are qualified chefs and love what we do. Meet our bunch (of friendly coconuts) below.

Success in the kitchen is a wonderful thing. Bridging the gap between knowledge and wisdom is a key to achievement.

We will teach you this art so you finally have the skills, know-how and recipes to cook with conviction. It becomes easy and pleasurable. You’ll be able to successfully prepare and enjoy fresh and exciting meals at home whenever your heart desires.

At Matters of Taste, we specialise in teaching people the skills to cook beautiful fresh food at home every day.
