Private Cookery Courses

Carol and I decided it was high time we stepped out of the hot kitchen and into the fire. We want to impart our extensive knowledge to avid bakers and foodies on the other side of the pantry doors. 


“We love to expand our own knowledge of food and improve our cooking techniques. We are forever seeking out the next cookery school or experience we can go on. We always say that if we come away with a gem or two, we have had a successful day in the kitchen. We came to realise that we have all the skills and more to build our own successful cookery school. We hope that you join us on our journey and enjoy what we have to offer. We think it’s rather wonderful. 

Since September 2019, we have hosted a series of successful Airbnb cookery experiences for over a year, and from this, the idea of the Kitchen Garden Cookery School was born. 

Using live Esse Range Cookers at Sandpits Heating Centre, in Curry Rivel, on the Somerset Levels, the guests are welcomed into the heart of Miranda’s husband’s family-owned business that has been supplying and fitting wood-burning stoves, Aga, Rayburn & Rayburn Electric, and Esse Range Cookers for more than 50 years. 


The classes take place around a large farmhouse kitchen table, surrounded by beautiful wood-burning stoves. 


The courses range from bread baking and jam making, pasta and pastry making, vegetarian food, picnic food, healthy eating courses. The courses are often bespoke. Popular classes include how to make the perfect cakes and scones, grinding spices from scratch to make wonderful curries and homemade Peshwari naan, stylish and original canapé ideas for people who love to host, special Christmas hamper ideas, healthy eating and cooking on a diet, and much more.
