"One of the best cooking classes I've ever been to - and I've been to many!"


"A brilliant teacher and class – it’s given me the confidence to cook vegan food at home."


Looking for a plant-based cookery or nutrition class? Or perhaps a food growing or foraging class? You’re in the right place. When we opened in 2012 Made In Hackney was the UK’s first 100% plant-based (so vegan) cookery school and since then we’ve continued to be at the forefront of the plant-based and sustainable food movements.

We offer inspiring, fun, hands-on cookery classes suitable for beginner, intermediate or advanced levels. Our classes promote, inspire and up-skill cooks to create sustainable, ethical - but always delicious – food that is good for people and planet.

All proceeds raised from our services are used to fund food growing and cookery sessions for groups most in need such as young people in care, low income families, people in recovery, people with long term health challenges and many other groups.

Our HQ cookery school is located in Hackney but we can bring our programme to venues across London whether that’s your office, studio, community centre or school. Our team of friendly chefs are renown in their specialist fields and have worked in a diverse range of settings from fine dining restaurants and artisan bakeries, to homeless hostels and special educational needs schools.

Class themes and courses can be developed bespoke for clients but here’s a flavour of what our team can offer...
