Missing Meat-Free Mondays?

Try Baker's Bites!

We are living in extraordinary times, but hopefully it’s only temporary. Until we are able to function as a cookery school (and all meet again in the pub...) Natural Cookery School has created Baker’s Bites!

Baker's Bites now offers our delicious Meat Free Mondays meals for collection in Nailsworth and Stroud on alternate weeks.

Simply order what you’d like from our weekly options and we will have your food ready for you between 5.00 and 6.30pm on Mondays, at either the Natural Cookery School, Nailsworth or The Crown & Sceptre, Stroud.

COVID-19 Statement

Cookery Classes

The cookery school will be reopening in mid-September in compliance with government guidelines and all of the necessary provisions in place. Erin is in the process of contacting everyone that was postponed due to COVID-19. If you are one of those people and you have not heard from Erin, please feel free to get in touch. Thank you for your patience and we can’t wait to welcome you back in the kitchen.
All the very best,

Food is precious

At the Natural Cookery School we’re conscientious in our approach to cooking and our use of ingredients. We use foods that have been minimally processed – whole grains, fresh local produce and organic ingredients.

We run our plant based cookery classes from our new beautiful culinary space in Nailsworth, Gloucestershire. Even though we travel to cater events throughout the Cotswolds it’s lovely to have a base after being a mobile cookery school since 2007.

Our recipes are always vegetarian, mostly plant-based and adaptable for gluten-free, dairy-free or sugar-free diets. All requirements can be carefully catered for.
