Discover the world through food

Welcome to The Kitchen

What we do

Situated in the picturesque north Essex countryside, we welcome you to join us on a culinary journey in The Kitchen at Raylands House, near Pleshey. 
We operate an intimate cooking school alongside a lunch club where we like to ‘Discover The World Through Food’.  You can also find us at our local farmer's markets where you can sample some of our very own treats and bakes.

At our lunch clubs, you will be indulged with new and interesting flavours from our table. With a different cuisine to explore each month, we will bring you dishes from afar to enjoy at Raylands House.

Our intimate cooking school gives you the confidence to try something new in your own home.  Learn how to cook some of our favourite dishes from around the world.

We can also work with you to arrange a private cooking lesson for up to 4 people, including lunch.

If you would like to host a private event, whether it be a lunch, brunch or dinner at Raylands House, please get in touch, we’d love to work with you to make your event special and bespoke.
