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. That's why we've launched a series of events which 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 to responsible fishing, from nutritional advice to Masters of Wine.

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