A friendly, informal cookery school at Manor Fields, Shuthonger. Ruth looks forward to welcoming you to her kitchen.

Situated on the edge of the Cotswolds and overlooking the Malvern Hills, Manor Fields Cookery School is ideally placed for food lovers from Cheltenham, Worcester, Pershore, Evesham, Gloucester and beyond. Ruth hopes to inspire cooks of all abilities to meet up in her kitchen to share ideas and socialise with likeminded people who have a passion for cooking. So whether you are an accomplished cook or a beginner wishing to develop your skills, you will find a class to suit your needs.

Guests will benefit from using newly installed "slide and hide" Neff ovens (as featured on The Great British Bake-off) and work in a newly designed and fitted Obsidian kitchen. Cookery classes will benefit from using locally sourced, seasonal produce and many herbs and vegetables will come from her newly created vegetable garden. So, if like her, you are a keen gardener as well as cook, then this is the ideal cookery school in Gloucestershire for you to book a class.

Popular classes include bread making, pastry making, French brasserie favourites and tasty crowd pleasing family meals. Classes are updated regularly and you can choose to sign up for the newsletter to keep you informed.

We took a trip from London to the school set in a fabulous countryside setting. The kitchen was state of the art and for complete novices we left with buns and bread (Other classes available not just baking) fit for the shops. Expert coaching, friendly hosts and seriously enjoyable! A must do if your thinking of honing your skills or having some fun.

Had a lovely morning learning how to make delicious bread, rolls, and some bonus iced buns. I really enjoyed the process and looking forward to trying it out at home. Thank you Ruth!

An absolutely fabulous experience! I booked two spaces on Ruth's Magical Macaron class for myself and my Grandmother as a Christmas present and we had the most wonderful day in the kitchen learning to make mini macarons. The ingredients we were given were great and varied and the guidance was thorough without being too formal! We really enjoyed the day spent with Ruth baking and can't wait to go again and try another class!

The magical macarons course is very good fun and so informative. Ruth is very patient and amusing. My macarons were not uniform but were delicious. I gave a box of 6 to my hosts, they were delighted.

Fabulous 3 hours with Ruth (and Roy!) and an introduction to Bread making. Fabulous kitchen to work in and excellent teacher. You have inspired me to make more bread and try different flavours. Thank you for a fun session, I will definitely be back. Oh and Teddy is gorgeous �

Thank you for a fantastic day! I was a bit apprehensive as I am very much an amateur cook but I needn't of been because Ruth is such a great teacher and the atmosphere is very relaxed and good fun. We cooked a selection of Spanish tapas. I couldn't believe what I had achieved in four hours!! The setting is lovely and the kitchen superb....I've now got the confidence to have a go at preparing this at home. I am definitely going to book up for another day soon.

We've just spent a thoroughly enjoyable few hours learning how to make bread with Ruth. Ruth is an excellent and very patient teacher and her cookery school is in a perfect setting with everything provided. We made a loaf of bread, seeded rolls and a pizza and we got to take all our goodies home. Will definitely be returning one day for another of Ruth's classes.

I had the most amazing day here making bread, macaroons and minestrone soup. This place deserves 10*s and Ruth is an amazing teacher. I've gone home with a box of colourful macaroons and other food which taste delicious. Already booked to come back ����

I have spent a wonderful day at the cookery school making macarons of all flavours and colours to die for. No longer will I have to drool over the ones at Geneva airport. We have also made bread and pasta. I thoroughly recommend the courses here in all areas of cuisine and I will be back for more. I'm not sure how she does it all for the money charged.

My 11 year old son & I had such a fantastic time with Ruth today, learning about pies & pasties. She was so patient & a really good teacher (sorry we took so long!). We both learnt lots & had fun doing it. Plus the results are delicious!! My son said that it was better than time spent on Fifa on the Xbox- praise indeed!! It was a really lovely thing to do together, learning new skills & helping each other. Also, good value for money - all the tuition, materials etc & I won't need to cook for days! We'll definitely be booking in for another course in the future. Thanks again Ruth for a lovely experience.
