Rachel’s Apron is the home of my cooking classes in Oxford, Oxfordshire. I am a passionate foodie and nothing makes me happier than to ignite the same passion in others that I feel myself at the creation of delicious food from beautiful ingredients.

I have dreamed of working in the food industry for most of my ten-year career in the motion capture technology industry. After attending a weekend class at Ashburton Cookery School in 2009 I had a strong desire to return to complete their Chefs Diploma, the highest level of practical culinary qualification. In the meantime, I attended as many cookery classes as possible on a wide range of cuisines. All of these further ignited my passion for learning about food and sharing that learning experience with others.

In 2017 I was able to fulfil my dream and moved from Oxford to Devon for six months to complete my culinary adventure (much to the delight of my husband!).

Since graduating I returned to Oxford and was very fortunate to gain experience working with Sophie’s Cookery School,  The Real Macaron Company, and Honesty Cookery School.

I offer private and group classes based on a variety of culinary skills. These classes are held in my own kitchen so that you can enjoy a relaxed class with demonstrations, hands on baking, and plenty of time for questions and laughter!
