Cooking class in Edinburgh?

Hello!  I'm looking for a 1/2 day or full day cooking class in/around Edinburgh anytime between 29 May and 2 June.  My partner loves to cook and this has been a great activity on many of our trips.  I've found some classes nearby but they only offer classes during the weekends.  We're looking for something during the week.  Thanks for any help!

    Hey @HampsteadHeath I know that the New Town cooking school does have weekday classes. Unfortunately none of the dates on your schedule have a class yet.

    An alternative I'd suggest is brew & bottle your own beer in Drygate, Glasgow. They hook you up with expert brewers to even help create a beer to your own taste. Plus it makes for a great home-party beverage.

    Hey @HampsteadHeath, while this is not 'in' Edinburgh, the nearby Lake of Mentieth hotel is beautifully located and would be a great place to base yourself for a days cook course with Nick Nairn; They are not currently showing cookery classes there but if you call they may have something on, not on their website. 

    Failing that they are showing a 'private' class in Aberdeen, you may be able to set something up for yourself? Aberdeen is also great for getting out to Speyside and doing some of the whisky trail.

    The Oil and Gas sector crash means there's now lots of availability and lower pricing in Aberdeen hotels than there has been in the past, making Aberdeen a more affordable destination for a couple of nights. You could fly to Aberdeen, travel by train to Edinburgh and fly home again... 

    I've been working with a falconry centre recently to develop a combined falconry and whisky tour day... It's shaping up to be a really fun day!
