Fancy a private cooking class with top chefs?

Are you looking for a fun activity to do with your team? We’ve recently started working with Blue Marble Training, a flagship programme of charity, Shoreditch Trust,  that seeks to support and nurture people into fulfilling hospitality careers.

Despite the great work that they do for the local community, as well as, for the hospitality industry as a whole, Shoreditch Trust’s Waterhouse Restaurant in Hackney is home to Blue Marble Training and a great location for people to enjoy high-quality food with an ethical twist. Waterhouse has also recently launched a Cookery School which they run for large groups and corporate functions.

About Waterhouse cookery school:

Waterhouse Cookery School delivers team building cooking activities with a twist, groups come and cook in our professional kitchen and make dishes from around the world with a healthy spin, gaining knowledge and confidence from our expert team of chefs, Blue Marble Training (BMT) trainees and nutrition professionals. Once the cooking is done, the team can relax with a glass of wine and eat the delicious food they have created.

All surplus income from these events feeds directly into the BMT programme and the Food For Life Programme, enabling them to run community healthy eating cooking classes. The first event was really successful, running smoothly with lots of smiles and great food. Perfect for employee bonding, de-stressing and away days – Waterhouse will be expanding and promoting this further and are open for future bookings.

If you are interested in booking a cooking course at the beautiful Waterhouse Restaurant contact Katie on or 020 7033 8505.

Background on Waterhouse Restaurant:

Waterhouse Restaurant is one of Hackney’s hidden canal side gems offering visitors a unique dining experience, serving a deliciously tempting seasonal menu, in a peaceful setting.

Set up in 2008, Waterhouse is owned by Shoreditch Trust, a charity working to reduce social and economic disadvantage by supporting people to gain knowledge, skills and opportunities so that they can: access the services and support they need; gain confidence; participate in the workplace and in civil society; achieve greater independence and resilience and lead healthier, more fulfilling lives.

The restaurant hosts Shoreditch Trust’s Blue Marble Training Programme to support and nurture young people to develop fulfilling careers in food and hospitality.
