Our Summer Courses are now in full swing and you can see them here.

Our current timetable is also available to download below:


At Mountain Thyme we believe great food doesn’t have to be complicated; and we know that with a little guidance and a sprinkling of inspiration we can get anyone cooking delicious food that everyone wants to eat. Our aim is to help you create food you can be proud of, without any of the stress.

Set in the centre of the stunning Swiss resort of Verbier, Mountain Thyme offers you a chance to hone your cooking skills. Whether you prefer not to ski or hike every day, or you fancy a new challenge, there is a wide range of courses to suit you. Choose from Dinner party classics, Family favourites, Canapes & cocktails, our popular Round the World series, where we explore a new cuisine each week, or one of our specialist courses such as Bread from Heaven or Summer Stunners & Bangin' BBQs. For kids, we offer classes for infants, juniors and teens where the children can learn to cook healthy meals (and the occasional treat!) in a fun and engaging class. We can also arrange classes for private groups or individuals specially tailored to your requirements. 

With 20 years experience in professional kitchens and teaching cookery, Cat Sheppard is following a long-held dream of opening a cookery school in her favourite place on earth. She has a wealth of knowledge garnered from travelling, cooking and teaching around the world for stars and mere mortals alike.

Mountain Thyme also offer a private dining space for up to 12 guests in our lovely dining room, and up to 20 people on our sunny terrace. We can create a bespoke menu for you, for those special occasions or evenings when you just feel like being spoiled. These can be offered with or without a cookery demonstration.
