Create your own romantic menu to share with your loved one!

I have modified my 2019 cooking class schedule and added some new classes so that you can have an intimate home-cooked Valentine’s Day experience at home.

The ultimate romantic day of the year is here once again.  The right ambience with candles and roses on the table, soft music, and food prepared with love and care using ingredients to fuel your passion, are all in your own hands.  We speak the language of love through our food and you will find plenty of love-laden ingredients on my menu.  Seafood, chilli, cardamom, cumin, chocolate, sensuous saffron, ravishing rose essence and more.  After all, why did Cleopatra use cinnamon and rose as beauty aids and Moghul Emperors relaxed in saffron scented rooms with their beautiful Empresses?  I have a main course which is totally dedicated to real life love story! Find out more and book your place by emailing me via the link on or call on 07867 688 931.  Menu available on request if desired prior to booking.

Sunday, 27/1, Saturday 2/2, Thursday 7/2, Saturday 9/2 and Sunday 10/2; 11 am until 3 pm; course fee £75.00 per person
