What you'll do

Shop & cook with a chef. Master British ingredients

We’ll move past our famous fish & chips to learn more about British food. Join me on a visit to my favourite local suppliers. We’ll shop for locally caught seafood & pick out award-winning artisan chocolates. Then, we'll hop on the bus & head back to our own private café for the evening. There we’ll use our beautiful ingredients to prepare a seasonal Great British feast together and try some English wines too. (Yep. English wines!).

Along the way I’ll teach you what to look for when picking out ingredients. In the kitchen we’ll use some of my favourite (and not so conventional cooking methods) which makes for a really hands-on experience. Eat Like A Chef is not only about cooking. It's about providing a welcoming environment for creativeness and developing new friendships too.

I’ve been a chef for the best part of a decade, & had the opportunity to work in some of London's best kitchens under the guidance of Michelin-starred chefs.
I live & breathe London's food scene. You can often find me "doing research" with a face full of street food! Not only in London, but all over the world.
With my background in British restaurants, I love to show what our cuisine has to offer.
I think that food is maybe the only universal thing that really has the power to bring everyone together, no matter what culture or where you're from people get together around the world to eat

Where you'll be

We'll meet in the vibrant area of Angel in North London. Awash with great neighbourhood restaurants serving up food from all over the world. It's a little less tourist trap and more where locals go out. It's my favourite place in the whole of London.

We'll head down covert side streets to find the best ingredients, before walking up trendy Upper St to hop on a bus to Highbury where we'll have a café all to ourselves after hours.

This experience was amazing! Liam is a fantastic host - really knowledgeable and super friendly. I learnt a lot, tried new foods and had so much fun. It was really great to be able to do something a bit different on a Thursday night in London! :-)

Liam is a wonderful, knowledgeable host who was easy to get on with and passionate about food. I learned some cooking techniques that I wouldn't have picked up elsewhere and got introduced to some beautiful English wines. Most important of all, I had a really fun evening!

Liam is very knowledgeable (who knew the Dutch were the ones to give carrots their orange colour) and I learned some great cooking techniques. The wine and food was delicious and all in all we had a very fun, sociable evening. Definitely recommend!

Our experience with Liam was great, I had been looking for a cooking class with the added experience of choosing ingredients alongside a chef. Liam’s experience provides excellent examples of each aspect, it has opened my eyes to the advantages of shopping locally and getting to know your shopkeepers. The meals that we prepared were fun and not too fiddly, he demonstrated and then we copied at our own station. The venue where the cooking class is held is really nice, and it is great to have use of a professional kitchen. Highly recommended as a unique and fun experience!

We had an excellent evening with Liam. He was instantly engaging and welcoming and created a very positive group dynamic. The wander around Islington was informative and the kitchen venue was excellent. We cooked simple but flavoursome food and learnt some really useful techniques on the way. A really pleasurable evening!
