About your host

I'm part of an exciting local social enterprise run by an organisation called Cyrenians which is currently celebrating 50 years of working with the homeless and vulnerable to transform their lives. In the Food Education part of the organisation we run classes on how to eat well on a budget and provide community cook clubs for families all over Edinburgh. In our Cook School we also offer a range…

What we’ll do

Classes always begin with a cup of coffee or tea or soft drinks and freshly-baked cake around our lovely kitchen table while we talk about the day ahead and the community work of the Cyrenians. Cooking classes will be a combination of demonstration, chat and hands-on cooking. This might be bread-making, pastry-making, baking for particular occasions or classes for children on how to make healthy…

freshly made baked goods
unlimited drinks
All equipment

What to bring

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 8 guests ages 11 and up can attend.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.
