The Demonstration Theatre at Tante Marie Culinary Academy is a versatile teaching kitchen and lecture theatre. It is where the learning process begins. Students can observe from the comfort of their seats as our professionally qualified teachers demonstrate each dish. They see the correct process, taste the end result, ask questions, take notes and generally develop an understanding of what is required before they are expected to carry out the process for themselves.
Unlike some cookery schools where each day is split between half a day of practical cookery and half a day of demonstrations, at Tante Marie the emphasis is on getting our students into the kitchen. Approximately 80% of the course is spent in the practical teaching kitchens, with 1 or 2 supporting demonstration & theory lessons during the week.
Events and lectures
The Demonstration Theatre has a multitude of uses and the wealth of natural light through its large windows, looking out over Woking’s busy town centre, makes it perfect for anything from wine tastings and lectures to meetings and corporate events. It is fully equipped with wi-fi, seating and presentation equipment.
