About The School

Natural Cookery School

The Natural Cookery School came into being when founder Erin Baker was head chef at Woodruffs, Britain’s first totally organic cafe. Erin’s evening cookery classes at the cafe proved so successful that starting her own school was a natural next step.

Without the means to equip an actual cookery school, Erin adapted her idea. The Natural Cookery School would be a mobile venture, offering classes in hired venues and peoples’ homes, with regular evening classes at Woodruffs. News quickly spread and soon the classes had waiting lists. Cookery parties, demonstrations and vegetarian catering would help take teaching into the community, so became integral to the plan.

Years later the school has blossomed and diversified. Today, Erin regularly hosts classes at her state-of-the-art kitchen in Nailsworth, Gloucestershire and at a beautiful organic farm in the heart of the Cotswolds.

Natural Cookery School Collaborations

Erin often takes part in collaboration nights with pubs and restaurants that offer themed supper clubs. They vary from five course banquets to Erin’s beloved Pad Thai Noodle Bar, and Meat Free Mondays. Erin also works with charities, councils, and groups such as the WI providing demonstrations, meals and workshops. If you’d like Erin to do a demonstration for your group, please get in touch.
