You gave something up for Lent, so why not pick up something new after Easter?

Restaurant Cafe Football – brainchild of footballing legends Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville – is once again throwing open its kitchen doors to the public and offering them a chance to learn how to cook.

Put all thoughts of bland burgers and burnt Bovril to the back of your mind, however.

Cafe Football’s menu has been expertly crafted by its creative director and two-Michelin-star chef Michael Wignall with executive chef Brendan Fyldes, who’s worked with top names including Marco Pierre White and Richard Corrigan, behind the pass.

The course will begin tomorrow at the restaurant in The Street, Westfield, Stratford City,

It costs £45 per person. Book tickets by emailing or calling 0208 702 2590.

We went down earlier in the year to try out the experience first hand (click the link below to see a video).
