There are three ways to come and enjoy a Migrateful cookery class:

1. Book onto one of our open classes costing £35 per person (+ £2.90 booking fee) and taking place several times a week at venues across London.

2. Request a private class with any of our chef, £45 per person (£360 minimum price – i.e: 8 people). For example, we can run the cookery class in your office building or home. We bring portable stoves, pans and kitchen utensils so the only thing we need is a sink to do the washing up after the event.

3. Request a private class hosted in one of our three private venues:

Brixton Pound CafeSW9 8PU (by Brixton station)

55 East Cafe – SE17 2DJ (near Elephant and Castle station)

.Farewell – N16 9BU (near Dalston stations)

Normal class price of £45 per person + £100 venue fee (minimum of 8 participants per class).

If you are a charity or social enterprise please email as you may be eligible for a discount.

Classes normally take place in the evening from 6.30 – 9pm, with 8 -12 participants. If you would like to organise a private Migrateful event, please email

What to expect

During a Migrateful cookery classes you will work with your group to prepare three or more dishes to be served family-style. Some dishes are prepared by the chef and demonstrated to you, while some dishes will have you preparing it from beginning to end, all while learning our chef’s authentic techniques from their home country.

Our classes appeal to those interested in learning international recipes, practising a different language and in meeting new people for a cultural exchange in an intimate home setting, as well as to those wishing to support migrants and refugees struggling to rebuild their lives.

Customers have reported: “It is an absolutely fantastic way to spend time with friends, meet new people, and learn about a culture and cooking in a cosy, well-equipped, fun and safe setting.”

Another told us the class was “…an enriching way to spend an evening. Cooking and eating with new people, talking and learning about other lives, cuisines and cultures.”

Migrateful’s classes offer much more than just a cookery lesson. Migrateful offers a novel experience, with an added “feel-good factor,” knowing you are benefiting those in need. It’s a chance to make a new friendship with the chef and to give them an opportunity to share their story in a setting where they feel empowered, cared for and supported. The facilitation of this friendship is extremely valuable to both chef and customer and unlikely to happen otherwise in the midst of busy city life.
