In our busy lives, food often becomes mere fuel, leaving us feeling empty and disconnected from our bodies. We can end up feeling run-down and unable to make an impact in the world. In our classes we offer an alternative approach to food that prioritises nourishment and connection.

Wholefood cooking classes with Concord Institute

We are delighted to introduce our “Heart in a Pot” class series. Join us in our welcoming kitchen where our wholefood teachers will inspire you to make delicious dishes that feed your body and heart and connect you to the Earth.

These dishes will take under an hour to make, in just one pot, with a few simple ingredients that you can adapt and customise at home. You will also learn the fundamentals of wholefood home cooking – the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of combining ingredients as well as methods and cooking styles. You can apply this knowledge beyond the recipes from the class.

“Heart in a Pot” is a series of 6 interactive classes, taking place on Monday evenings, 7 – 9 pm at Concord Institute in Finsbury Park. Numbers are limited to ensure full attention for all students.

The cost is £260 for the entire series of 6 classes, or £50 for a single drop-in session.

If you would like to find out more about this cooking series, please contact Sarah Williams on or 07919 888437.

Heart in a Pot: Winter participant testimonials


Participating in the Atelier 1-day cooking course was a beautiful, grounding, nourishing and relationally rich day. Jean was a masterful teacher, weaving in practical cooking tips with fascinating insights into the history and philosophy of organic whole-meal food. I came away feeling light, replenished, inspired, and armed with some new recipes and techniques to try out at home. I can’t recommend it enough.
