The WI Cookery School

Drawing on the amazing range of skills and experience of the Women's Institute, the WI Cookery School is a modern purpose-built cookery school located just outside Abingdon in Oxfordshire. We offer a full range of inspiring hands-on classes for all ages and abilities, from knife skills workshops to family baking days, sushi masterclasses to seasonal Spanish food.

We welcome members and non-members alike and provide courses of varying lengths, from full day classes to four night residential courses for those wishing to fully immerse themselves in their chosen subject. We also run shorter evening classes which are perfect for busy foodies, as well as our Sunday Morning Bakery.

Set in the grounds of a magnificent country house and fully equipped with the latest Morphy Richards appliances and kitchenware, each of the 12 workstations is kitted out with its own Stoves oven, fridge and a choice of electric or gas powered hobs. Best of all, we do all the laborious preparation such as weighing out ingredients so that you can spend more time cooking.
