Meet the experts at the heart of Waitrose & Partners at our state-of-the-art Cookery Schools.

We're proud of the expertise and knowledge we have within our business, and we'd like to share it with you. So we've launched a series of events that allow customers to meet our in-house experts.

We've invited some of our Partners to host events at our Cookery Schools, to share fascinating insight into their particular role or specialism, from animal welfare and responsible fishing to nutritional advice, as well as a Master of Wine.

We'll keep this page updated with the latest events, so be sure to check back regularly.
