Welcome to Cooking with Rosie

If youíre looking for the very best in vocational cookery schools, your search is over. Iím Rosie Davies, and Iíve been running hands-on, four week, residential cookery courses for people who are passionate about cooking for over fifteen years.

My courses combine practically-based teaching of core culinary techniques and methods with tried and tested advice, tips and tricks honed in the course of 30-plus years of experience as a professional cook and teacher.

Receive Expert Tuition

I've spent my life cooking and teaching others to cook. By attending my course you'll have to opportunity to benefit from that experience.

Many of my students work or wish to work in the yachting or ski industries, and my course includes specialist advice and tips on cooking in chalets and on boats.

Learn Hands-on cooking

Everything we do is based around contact with food.

While we spend some of our time talking about the methods and techniques we're working on, you'll spend most of your time cooking - after all, the best way to learn is by doing.

From day one, you'll work both in pairs and on your own to create impressive food that not only looks and tastes great, but builds your knowledge, understanding and confidence

In a Beautiful Setting

I run my courses from my home, Pennyís Mill - an attractive converted watermill that is over 200 years old. It is situated in the quiet, pretty village of Nunney which is set in the beautiful Somerset countryside, around half an hour from the Georgian city of Bath.

Accommodation is provided on site as part of your all inclusive course fee, and at the end of a hard days work you'll be able to relax in warmth and comfort, with all the benefits of a real home.

For One All Inclusive Fee

Your comprehensive course fee includes four week's tuition, examination for the Level 2 Award in Food Safety in Catering, my legendary course file, informal wine tastings, and all meals and accommodation for the duration of the course.

Unlike other cookery schools I donít expect my students to buy any expensive equipment or uniforms. Please click here for details of availability and fees.
