Our mymuybueno Cookery School is now open and we are working on a new look website at present. Our first courses have been added to our course calendar (see below), please contact us to book your place or for more information on +34 971720017, or email us at info@mymuybuenocookeryschool.com.

As our courses only operate with 8 students at a time, places are limited. Our goal is to ensure that every student who comes through our doors, walks away well equipped and fully versed with absolute confidence in everything they learn with us and are able to replicate dishes again with ease in their own environment. Cooking with your classmates is still an integral part of your mymuybueno Cookery School experience. You will cook some of your recipes in pairs, and some independently.

All ingredients and recipe sheets are included, and a Certificate of Attendance at the end of your course. New students will also receive a mymuybueno Cookery School folder to keep all their recipes in, to keep adding to as you partake in more courses with us.

Our House Chefs have various backgrounds of expertise and experience both to share with you, some with restaurant backgrounds, and others as yacht chefs. We have half day courses for children, one week courses in Beginners Cookery, Teen Bootcamp, and Patisserie, and our four week Essentials course and many fantastic Lifestyle one day courses which cover a multitude of cuisines. We will be flying in Guest Chefs from around the globe to join us for professional specialist courses throughout the year too.

Your day will comprise of a mixture of hands on cookery and demonstrations performed by the chef who is running the session. The exact format will vary from class to class depending on the style of cuisine and, in the case of visiting chefs, their individual teaching style.

Unless otherwise stated, you will be eating the food that you have cooked during your course day for lunch. If your course day does not involve cooking lunch you will enjoy delicious sharing platters prepared by the school. At present, all our courses are in English only.

All one day courses must be paid in full when booking, for one week and longer courses, a deposit of €450 is required to secure your place. The remainder is payable 8 weeks before your course start.

We are located in Central Palma, opposite the main Post Office, above Engel & Völkers.
