Waitrose is opening a second cookery school after the success of its first in Finchley Road, London.

The new school will open inside the revamped Waitrose Food and Home shop in Salisbury, following a refit due for completion in November. It will provide a wide range of cookery courses, chef demonstrations and tastings.

The school will host bestselling courses from the London school, such as bread-making, knife skills and world street food as well as one-hour ‘mini master’ classes, which will focus on teaching consumers one classic recipe.

The new-look branch will also host a juice and smoothie bar, a café and a new beer and wine bar, which will serve tapas.
