Cookery Class

Come along to one of our evening cookery classes at the e5 bakehouse and get stuck into preparation of an authentic and delicious meal with the help of expert chef Ruth Quinlan.  Ruth has cooked her way around the world, from Hong Kong to Buenos Aires, and Ibiza to Hackney.  She was Head Chef at Bermondsey Kitchen and co-wrote the Eagle cookbook.
