CHICKEN – How To Cook Great Food

Presented by The Cooking School at The Essential Ingredient Newcastle
About the class

If you’re feeling uninspired, if you’re starting over again or if you’d just like to get better at cooking one meal each week – this is the series for you.

Each individual protein lends itself naturally to a few types of cuisine. In these classes we will celebrate the natural inclination of our starring protein.


This is not to say that a well-executed chicken and sweet corn soup can’t curl your toes or that pulled achiote chicken wrapped in a tortilla won’t want to make you move to Mexico – but slowly, slowly.

Chettinad chicken curry; Tandori chicken wings with mango chutney & herb salad; Chicken Biryani and pappadums.

At the end of each class we will sit, have a glass of wine and enjoy the meal we have created at our shared table. It is our hope that strangers become friends and allies in the kitchen and that your confidence will blossom.


How to Cook Great Food is a weekly series of cooking classes designed to breathe life back into your cooking. Discover (or rediscover) a love for your kitchen and its contents, through our carefully designed course which aims to celebrate cooking technique, protein and seasonal produce in an achievable and encouraging environment.

To Do List:
•Wear closed toe shoes (we love your toes where they are),

•Inform us of any dietary requirements prior to purchasing your ticket/s. Please also be aware that some requirements and/or allergies cannot be catered to – depending on the class.
•There are often leftovers at the end of each class so we ask that you bring Tupperware from home to put them in, as we will no longer be handing out plastic containers in our bid to save the environment.
