post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
We open in the spring and I still havnt a definite name for the business. Although i do like Cookery class. Class being CLASS Different font. Stylised to indicate style.

We'll be givng away the aprons students use and i want to get them printed asap

Please help. I'm getting useless feedback from friends and family. They either agree with everything i come up with or get all pretentious on me

Does your school have a theme or focus you can play off of? A snazzy address perhaps?

So, where is your school? In Dundee? I'll be home next year visiting my dad in Carnoustie. I'll stop in and say hello if that's OK

Put your name on it. Either your first given name or your last or even your online name here. Buguts Cookery School. Okay I don't know know that cookery is a proper word but seriously, I go by the name Gunnar online for more then one reason. The main one being it was given to me at a Ren. Faire and for years some of the best friends i made there and interacted with in the real world didn't know it wasn't my real name. I even still harbor the idea of Gunnar's Patio, a nice little North Cali. Pub, with t-bone steaks. and honestly some people wouldn't even question the name... just figure it's some new cuisine...hmmm, the Bughut technique;):D

K got a couple...

Cooking with Class

Class Course
(as in crash course :) )

What's Cooking?

Class it Up

McCLASS
(Ahem...j/k)

1. What have your family/friends suggested? (they can be helpful hey? :) )
2. What's the location/town/suburb, or are you looking for something not local but global?
3. Is it "classic" cooking/ localised/stylisied/ haute cuisine/everyday home cooking?
4. Any local landmarks/points of reference?
5. Do you want to incorporate your name in the School's name?
6. Do you want to focus on the fact you are in Scotland?

OK, interrogation over!

Hope this helps focus on what you'd like to call it...let us know.

"Live Long and Prosper Cooking School".

Works for me.

Sounds like a healthy cooking school with a healthy attitude about the relationship between what you eat and what you are, which we all hope is a long lived person!

I say think big, if there's a chance that it might become very well known. Something that sounds good even without the special font, since when spoken or written of, the font won't be there.

I agree with using your first or last name, unless your name is Bertha Butts. (No offense meant to anyone with Bertha or Butts in their name, it just doesn't have a nice ring to it for a business name, imo).

Thanks Ishbel

Cooking matters is a definite contender. I wish Id thought of it. Funny how you think you've exhausted all avenues then someone else opens up new ideas... Thats just what i was hoping for when i asked you guys

Cheers

not sure about the name thing Gunnar. I'd thought about using Bughut, but you really need google to grab onto it as a cookery school and it wouldnt work. BTW FYI Bughut came from the name we gave the kitchen before it was a kitchen. Because it was a glory hole full of junk and lots of spiders and other nasties. I still have a bug hanging over one of the windows, but its made of wire and fish scales. (work of art???)

DC I got goose bumps when i read cooking with class. Same same when i thought of Cookery Class. I like it for the same reason, but I'm just needing a bit more validation to be sure. It would do well on google. My Brothers a computer wizz with a variety of websites. He did my "one bite wonders" one and he gears it up to do its best on google. Makes sense.

Thank you all for you input. It's great that you want to help.

If you like having "Class" in the name, how about "Culinary Class"? A plus would be anybody looking for a cooking school is likely to search using "Culinary" . . . eh?

But maybe it is too ordinary sounding. I don't know. I've looked through online thesauruses and kind of burnt myself out for now :crazy:

Maybe these???

- The Concoction Class
- Culinary Concoctions
- Artistry in Food

Good Luck BugHut!!!

I'm a little on the slow side. Can you explain what the above response is supposed to mean?

Like to hear what you meant, really.

Ah Doc. I assumed you were having a laugh. "live long and prosper" being Spock from Star trek's monika. He's a Vulcan with pointy ears. If you've never watched star trek you wouldnt know. I meant no offence.
I did appreciate you're reasoning behind it, but I thought you were being funny.
Sorry

I'm going to use your idea Ishbel. I love "COOKING MATTERS" For a few reasons:-

Because IT DOES

"COOKING" Should be a great google link

And It sounds great and sits well with me.

Cheers Ishbel.

DC - I'm keen to use your "CLASS COURSE" (crash course) idea too, in the marketing and advertising Thank you.

Humungus thanks to all of you for your interest and ideas.

YAAAAY - that's great, Bughut!

You're right - the title says it all.... and a wee bit less scary than 'Bughut's cookery school ('Elf n Safety comes to mind)!!!
