About Us

The Cotswold Cookery School is based in the beautiful village of Ashton Keynes,  which is situated on the edge of the Cotswold Water Park and a 10-minute drive from the market town of Cirencester.

The business is run by Sarah, who trained at Leith's School of Food & Wine in London and Mel, a professional nutritionist.

In addition to our cookery classes, we offer event catering and event management around Gloucestershire and Wiltshire for weddings, celebrations, canape parties, shooting lunches, funerals, festivals, business breakfasts and lunches, and provide private dining to the holiday homes situated on and around the Cotswold Water Park.


Our food

Food, to us, is health, family, friends and fun.  Gathered around a table, we're all about feeding delicious dishes to our kids, best mates, loved ones, partners, colleagues and customers.  Our classes are very hands on and we cook using quality, seasonal produce, sourced locally from artisan suppliers wherever possible.  The recipes we use aren't complicated and don’t use pages of ingredients.  They're tried and tested by our chefs and nutritionist to ensure they’re fail safe and easy to follow.
