Covid Secure Kitchens at Cookery School at Little Portland Street

Since the arrival of the pandemic we have been working towards making the kitchens as Covid-19 safe as we can and were able to reopen on the 1st September 2020.

Covid Secure Kitchens at Cookery School at Little Portland Street

"We would like to share our learning with businesses that are still feeling ignorant and impotent about how they too could restore customer confidence."
Rosalind Rathouse

We are now six weeks down the road and have completed our first professional course at Cookery School at Little Portland Street  and the second course ends this week.  Regular classes have been taking place and we are told that, after an initial reticence about coming into our kitchens, our students very quickly feel confident and safe and able to enjoy their time in Little Portland Street.  We believe that we have a model that works and will hopefully allow us to start becoming economically viable again. 

We would love  to share our learnings on our Covid secure procedures with businesses that are still feeling ignorant and impotent about how they too could restore customer confidencet.  The further the reach of this message, the better, as we believe that this could be an interim solution to returning to normality once this pandemic has been brought under control. 

Hopefully, you'll see from this short video that student's safety is always front of mind in our Covid secure kitchens, but that won't stop them from relaxing and having fun too.

All of our students feel relaxed because they are wearing masks (and visors if desired), disposable biodegradable aprons, gloves when necessary and using our infra-red touch fee taps, soap and hand sanitiser dispensers. 

We have been speaking to experts in the field of kitchen hygiene, air flow, the public health team at Westminster Council  and others and are continually learning of new practices that we can put in place to ensure maximum safety for all.

If anyone would like us to share with them the practices that we have in place, we would happily do so.
