Hi, I’m your Cambridgeshire local - host Sophie. I have a training and development background in the corporate food and beverage industry and have been cooking and baking since discovering the joy of it many, many moons ago in my early teens. I am still to this day besotted with it.
I opened my own self-run boutique kitchen school and cafe in Cambridge in 2015. I now provide and teach multiple courses, with just one being the traditions of British afternoon tea. But, this has proved by far the most widely popular: amongst natives as well as tourists looking to experience this famous slice of British culture. With Cambridgeshire itself having such rich British culture running through its veins, its the perfect place to do it!
My focus is to provide an intimate learning experience that is fun-filled, friendly and inviting to all ages and personalities. I love nothing more than the joy I get from seeing people excited about spending time together in the kitchen.
