Sophie’s Cookery School is a pop-up cookery school, led by Sophie Grigson, who started the business with the aim of sharing her love of delicious food and simple ingredients by teaching people to cook in an informal, enthusiastic, and relaxed environment. Our sessions are fun and accessible, but also informative and supported by Sophie’s wealth of culinary knowledge, as well as that of our wonderful guest teachers. We can offer a wide range of different cuisines and culinary themes, tailoring classes to fit in with your group.
As we are a pop-up cookery school, we can come to deliver courses to you. If you are organising a private event such as a corporate day, a hen party, or a birthday dinner, then let us do the hard work and come to your location. We are based in Oxford, but can travel to deliver classes to venues within a reasonable distance. All we need is a room with a table that is large enough to accommodate your group, and a sink with an area which we can use for washing up (some of our classes require the use of ovens, but not all: we can tailor a class to suit a space). We’ll bring all of the ingredients and equipment you need, as well as setting up and cleaning down at the beginning and end of the class.
All of the recipes that are taught in the class will be yours to keep, and Sophie and the team would be delighted to stay in touch and to answer any queries you may have in the future. We love working with people and are always eager to make new friends and hear new ideas.
