About the school
Margate Cookery School is the brainchild of Margate restauranteurs Kate, Harry and Simona. Kate runs Hantverk & Found and Harry and Simona run Bottega Caruso. Having been restaurant neighbours in Margate’s Old Town for several years, we have called on each other for spare chairs, emergency wine, an ear to bend and also lots of delicious meals. It only seemed natural we would end up working together too.
The school showcases the wealth of culinary talent right here in Thanet, so as well as ourselves, we feature classes from lots of the other brilliant local chefs, foragers, bakers and barmen. As proud as we are of the burgeoning food scene here in Thanet, we also host classes from people we admire wherever they hail from.
