Discover our cooking workshops

Discover our cooking workshops. Curious how you can come and cook during a workshop? We organize more than 25 different workshops as standard, always under the guidance of a professional chef. We provide the fresh ingredients, as well as matching wine and other drinks. Those drinks are included and you process the ingredients with professional cooking utensils.

Organizing a cooking workshop and curious about the possibilities for this?

This is possible with Italian cuisine, for example, as with the various other kitchens that you would like to work with. Fancy Indonesian or Indian for example? These are typical kitchens that we often cook with, both for bachelor parties and company outings. We buy the fresh ingredients and provide both professional guidance by a chef and delicious matching drinks. Drink a good glass of wine during the drink and meal or enjoy the other goodies that are available during the workshop.

Of course, everything is possible during the cooking workshop, for example to cook completely vegan or to get started with an Mexican cuisine. And do you like Spanish cuisine or can it be a bit exclusive? We ensure that you will lack nothing. Or that we inspire the group with everything that is possible, for example in the field of insects, cooking with whiskey or in another theme. In this way it will be a special experience, with which we ensure that the workshop will remain with you for a long time to come.

Vegan or cooking with insects: workshops per theme

A workshop cooking with insects or curious about the other themes that are available? We can imagine that you have no experience with this yet. We help you to take the first steps or to get to know it in a fun way. Most people who cook with insects like that much better than they would think. Plus, it’s a lot less scary than most people expect. And that way we can also cook with other ingredients that you would not expect or without certain ingredients, for example by not using salt. We recommend herbs that are a great alternative to put a tasty dish on the table.

The different themes for the cooking workshops make it fun to try new things in the kitchen. We show what is possible with the different ingredients and by preparing certain dishes in a different way. For example, did you know that it is great fun to cook with chocolate? It clearly shows how we can get to know the kitchen better by working with it in a different way during a workshop.

Indian, Spanish and other local cuisines

If your especially curious about the local cuisines that are available for a cooking workshop? You can think of, for example, the Malaysian cuisines, in which spices naturally play an important role. Even without the peppers it can get quite heated, although we can keep it very accessible on the other hand. In this way we ensure that the workshop is well suited for everyone, so that you can also go for a bachelor party or a company outing. And is it the intention to work better together or to put the bachelor or birthday boy in the spotlight? Of course we can also take care of that during the workshop.

Other popular cuisines during the workshops are, for example, those with Spanish cuisine or Italian cuisine. We can organize an exclusive cooking workshop with those kitchens, for example by making tapas that you would otherwise not eat so quickly. And above all should it be accessible? Then the Italian kitchen is well suited for this. We work with eggs, flour and oil, to get started in a special way, just like grandmother. We’ll teach you some important cooking techniques or finish the “i”, depending on the experience you already have with it.

Exclusive cooking workshop: right on each level

Looking for an exclusive cooking workshop, where a professional chef ensures that you can master the techniques better? It is one of the ways in which you can come and cook deliciously. We ensure that you master the basics better or can work on certain techniques. In this way we guarantee a workshop that matches the level that you have. Our chef ensures that you can enter the kitchen as a true cook or keep it accessible, with a result that can still look very exclusive.

Cooking on a level, even if it is a bit lower? We are known for our exclusive workshops, with which we like to ensure that it gets a culinary edge. And on the other hand, doesn’t it have to be all that special, but should it be tasty and fun? We can also adapt effortlessly to that. In this way we organize an Indian or a vegan cooking workshop, exactly the way you envision it.

Cooking workshop for bachelor parties and companies

We organize our cooking workshops for bachelor parties and companies as standard for large groups. Do you come to cook with, for example, 10 people or more? This is a nice number for a cooking workshop in Utrecht. That way we have enough space for everyone, we can give everyone the right attention and we work together on a special meal. We can divide the tasks and make it a fun assignment or just let it take its course, depending on what you like.

Are you curious about the possibilities for a cooking workshop where we work with a local cuisine or a specific theme? We like to make it easy for you, based on the preferences you have. Use our cooking class help help, which makes it clear in a few questions how we can get started. We ensure that you can expect a successful workshop, of course including the drinks you want to drink with it.

Tapas cooking class

Last Saturday a very nice tapas workshop done at Keukenvuur as a surprise for our birthday friend! There were 10 of us. Nice, cozy location. Easy to reach by public transport. The workshop leader/cook was very patient with these caulating girls… Delicious food! Recommended! Tip: if you want to go to the pub afterwards, bring some extra chewing gums?

Ludia van Rossum

Thai cuisine cooking cooking class

With 13 ladies we followed a cooking workshop of Keukenvuur during a bachelor party in early June 2015. We opted for Thai cuisine. Nice that you can choose different kitchens. The cooking workshop is very easy to reach by both car and bus 37. The location is very nicely decorated, very nice to spend a few hours here. The chefs from KEUKENvuur knew a lot about the products, the recipes and helped everyone prepare the delicious food well. Pure & fresh products, unlimited drinks, ideal! The communication beforehand & afterwards was also very pleasant. We had a very pleasant evening and I would definitely recommend everyone to follow or book a workshop here if you like cooking!

Marieke Fengers

Italian cooking class

With our department, on Dec. Jl. done a cooking workshop. This was a culinary experience for everyone. For example, we have learned to fillet a whole ‘real’ salmon. In addition, we learned to make all kinds of Italian dishes including 4 (!) desserts. We were about 35 colleagues and worked on the starters, main dishes and desserts in groups. When the food was ready we were allowed to take a seat at the table where the dishes were served in turn.
The reactions of the colleagues were very enthusiastic: ‘delicious’, ‘never knew I could fillet a salmon’, ‘I want all the recipes’, ‘what a nice cook, can he come and help me at home’.
The guidance of the three chefs was also top notch. With a lot of knowledge, patience and humor they guided us. Really recommended to do with a group. You are busy, you learn something, you enjoy a delicious meal and in the meantime there is plenty of opportunity to catch up with your colleagues.

Italian cooking class

The Italian cooking workshop was great; cooking together is very cozy and good for the team spirit! The result was very tasty partly because of the good and fun guidance of Sil. In short; we enjoyed it. The (new) cooking studio is fantastic; very nicely decorated, very atmospheric and also nice to work in. The easy and free parking in front of the door is of course also a plus. Thank you for the lovely evening KEUKENvuur, on behalf of all colleagues of AircoRent.

My colleagues came back with very enthusiastic stories. Thanks for the great tips and the delicious food. All this under your humorous and professional guidance.
Totally Top and worth repeating!


The chef is just so much fun!

The chef is just so much fun! We asked him again to do a workshop during our company weekend. Last time was a great success and this time it exceeded our expectations. This time we made Sushi and of course ate it. The chef guides the workshop with humor, has an eye for detail and knows how to get and keep everyone on track. As far as we are concerned, it will become a tradition during our company weekends: the second evening is the chefs evening. Thanks again,Chef!

Hi KEUKENvuur,
Compliments for the total care of the BBQ workshop. Everything was totally super arranged. Instructive, delicious, and what an enthusiasm you know how to convey! Not to mention the incredibly creative BBQ dishes/snacks you’ve come up with. From fish, meat to fruit & vegetables. Highly recommended for young and old.

Private sushi workshop

During sil and his family’s holiday with us, I soon found out that Sil was giving sushi workshops. Since I really like cooking, I asked him to teach me how to make sushi. He was immediately enthusiastic and we spent an entire evening making sushi. Delicious food but also learned a lot. Great to see how passionate he talks about food and how much he knows about it. Nice to fill an evening with dinner talk and sushi snacks.
Thank you    Sil, I think you’re a top chef!
