About Us

The smallest of London’s Livery Companies by Liverymen, the Worshipful Company of Cooks can trace its origins back to the 12th Century. Thirty-fifth in order of seniority in the City Livery Companies, it was founded from two guilds of cooks in medieval London - the Cooks of Eastcheap and the Cooks of Bread Street.

The ‘About Us’ drop-downs fill in much of the detail and answer many questions about the Cooks Company.
