Caribbean Cookery Classes
By Caribbean Dutchpot Northampton

Ever wondered how to create those exciting flavours found in Jamaican Jerk Chicken or how to get the rich savoury flavour in Curried Goat?
Well whether you are a beginner or not we can teach you how to cook these dishes and many more.
The cookery class consist of between 7 and 10 people. Small and personal. As well as giving you a background to Caribbean food and showing you how to use the famous “dutchpot”

You will learn how to create your own Jerk marinade and sauce. Our lessons are designed to be informative and hands on, but easy-going so you can enjoy yourself while you learn. 
Whether you’re coming alone, as a couple, a family or a group, our lesson space can adapt to create the perfect cooking environment. After we have cooked up a feast not only will you eat the food there but you will be given a meal to takeaway with you.


We have two types of classes

1. Show mi

This class is largely demonstrative with participants taking part in making Jamaican Fried Dumplings. The class includes demonstrations of Jerk Marinade, Jerk Chicken, Rice and Peas etc…. The class takes part in a small cosy setting in the kitchen of the takeaway. With a cup of tea or coffee you will meet other food lovers which will enhance the experience of the day. No need to take anything with you as all ingredients are provided as well as aprons and gloves if required. You will receive all the recipes for the meals demonstrated and leave with lunch !!

These classes cost £27.00 per person or £25.00 for two or more people. They are held on Tuesday evenings from 6:00pm to 8:30pm and Saturday mornings from 9:30 to 12:00 noon.

2. Mek we cook together

This class is fully participative. We will cook in a teaching kitchen with every cook having their own cooking station. The class will have approx. ten people and you will create a full meal with a popular Jamaican drink! This class will allow you to cook the ever-popular Jamaican Curried Goat and Rice and peas. You will get all the recipes AND as a personal gift to you, a jar of my homemade Jerk marinade!!!

These classes are held on Saturdays and Sundays between the hours of 10:00am to 14:00pm.
