The Stir Crazy Cooking School runs pop-up dinners and special events from time to time, and we invite you to come and join us for these occasions.

Each month Stir Crazy trains students to become Galley Chefs on Superyachts.  The students run through a rigorous programme to get them up to speed to prepare food on yachts that expect the best cuisine available for their owners and guests.  At the end of the course, we host a gala dinner to show off their skills and to celebrate the end of the Superyacht Culinary Training Course.

The dinner is hosted at the Stir Crazy Cooking School, and students assisting the Head Chef as sous chefs in the kitchen in preparing a delicious dinner.  To participate in this exclusive evening event, please book below.
