The first time I heard of the term “cookery”, I thought it was merely a wordplay instead of an actual word. If we’re being doubly honest, I thought it was a synonym to the similarly fun word “shenanigan” and I could use it in my sentences like so- “Last weekend’s cookeries landed us in prison /an emergency room/a deserted island with no food or drinking water.”
Apparently, that usage is incorrect. According to the dictionary (the free online one), “cookery” is a noun meaning “the art or practice of preparing food” which is the perfect word to describe The Cookery Place in BGC. I first chanced upon it while looking for coffee to cap the night after dinner somewhere in Burgos Circle. The lights inside The Cookery Place were still open, and it looked to be some kind of a coffeeshop or bakeshop from the outside so we opted to check the place out.
I was wrong on both accounts. For one, they were already cleaning up after an event that was held earlier that night. For another, The Cookery Place is not a coffeeshop or a bakeshop. It is actually a “cookery place” or a place where you can practice the art of preparing food. It is a training kitchen where they offer fun events every month that you, your friends, your kids, and even your house help can enroll and participate in.
What’s nice about The Cookery Place, besides their being stocked up in all wonderful kitchen-y gadgets, is that the place is fairly small. The classes will be very intimate and personal. I’m particularly interested in the Couples’ Cooking series, where you and your partner can learn to cook together (YIHEE!) .

- If I were to pick one thing I miss most about trying to eat low carb, it’s pasta. This is why on really bad days, I gorge on instant noodles. 😨 For shame. Anyway, when I found out about @7grainspantry’s Protein Pasta which are made from two ingredients- edamame and water, I was sold. High on protein and fiber, this is the ultimate carb substitute. #happyhealthyawesome #BTMcooks #BTMrecommends #edamamepasta #proteinpasta - August 25, 2017
- Those tiny grain like things sprinkled on top of this chia pudding is @manitobaharvest’s Hemp Hearts. Rich in two essential fatty acids, omega-3 and omega-6, hemp seeds are really good for health. Kinda reminds me of pine nuts in both taste and texture. #hempseeds #dailychia #chiapudding - August 24, 2017
