Private Cooking Classes

Whether you wish to recreate your favourite childhood dish, or want to surprise your significant other with a romantic home-cooked meal, or simply want to try a brand new dish, a private cooking class with Hami is for you.

This is a private class, in which Hami will teach you one-on-one how to cook a dish of your choosing. Depending on which dish you’d like to learn, the class will take 2 to 3 hours. You will be able to book the time of your class to best fit your schedule.

If you’re unsure about which dish to choose for your class, Hami will be more than happy to advise you on this. Simply use the contact form below to describe what what the occasion is, or which flavours you like.

This class is also for you, if you have a certain dish in mind, that you always wanted to master.

You’ll have the chance to go really in depth and learn all the tips and tricks. If you’ve been following Hami over on Instagram for any length of time you’ll know, he's very laid back and will make your time together fun and engaging. It will feel like cooking with an old friend, as opposed to being lectured. And afterwards cooking your favourite dish will be second nature to you.

About Your Instructor

Cooking has been an important part of my life for as long as I can remember. I spent my childhood in Iran watching my mum cook our family meals and I was in constant awe of how she could magically make them so tasty and palatable!

My childhood background inspired me to professionally pursue cooking, and I passionately took culinary courses and joined our family restaurant business in Northern Iran.

When I moved to the UK, I have further studied Catering and Hospitality at college. That was such a joyful and insightful time, as I have learned more in-depth about the cuisines that are practiced around the world, organisations, and important kitchen skills.

I have learned a great deal from my food blog “I got it from my Maman” about the significant role that food plays in our lives. Food is not only about nourishing our body, but to make us feel connected. Certain dishes and aromas evoke childhood memories, make us feel taken care of, like a warm hug, or make us excited about discovering what more is out there.

My mission is to help you create dishes, that give you those positive emotions and celebrate the awesomeness of Persian food!
