Tales of the Underground - Underground Cookery School!
I was invited to the Underground Cookery School in London to preview their cooking school along with 19 other bloggers and asked only that if we liked the evening we share it.
The cooking school is run by Mat Kemp since 2003, a few minutes walk from Old Street Station (on the Northern Line) in London.
The cooking classes are aimed at corporate groups, hen do's, stag do's, family cooking get togethers and those wanting to learn the basics of cooking in a relaxed and helpful atmosphere.
