About Emily

 Emily Carey has been teaching people to cook classic and original dishes for over 8 years, driven by her passion to make home cooking more widely accessible.

Her childhood, in a home where great food, especially Mediterranean cooking was cherished, started her off on a journey of discovery and exploration. She developed an eye for good recipes and learning what foods work well together, adding to this a flair for bringing food and people together, and that became the basis for Get Cooking.

With a simple start in 2010, and the opening of an exciting and unique venue in Farsley in 2016, she has continually incorporated fresh ideas into the business.

Reviews and feedback

Emily’s East of Europe course was fantastic. I met a mixture of very nice people, had fun, cooked lots of different things that were all lovely and which I got to take home to enjoy. I have also signed up for another cooking course, can’t wait for the next one! (Jackie)

Lots of delicious food to take home! (Tim)

I thought it was all excellent! (Aquel)

Very enjoyable course at just the right level. Very impressed with the facilities… all the equipment and everything you needed. The teachers were great, worked at the right pace, didn’t feel rushed. The course enabled me to learn everything I needed and I have repeated the dishes at home easily. I have recommended it to others.  (Alan)
