Rachel’s Apron is the home of my cooking classes in 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 have returned to Oxford and been very fortunate to gain experience working closely with Sophie Grigson at Sophie’s Cookery School. Also working with Gaye Perry from The Real Macaron Company to put on a series of Afternoon Tea Classes. I also offer private and group classes based on a variety of culinary skills.
