the art of instinctive cooking


Whilst The Cobbled Kitchen predominantly wishes to help people feed their family and friends with newly acquired confidence and skills through the various classes offered, I acknowledge there are times when extra help is needed.

  • If you require food to be made and brought to your home/venue for whatever occasion, and really want that Cobbled, special, homemade look, then I can provide a range of dishes for delivery in St. Albans and neighbouring Hertfordshire villages/towns.  I can happily cater for up to 50 people. 


Some of the dishes will be delivered in a partly-cooked state for you to finish off at home in your own oven (with instructions, of course!) and I don’t mind if you take all the credit from your impressed guests!  I can even use your own crockery if you'd prefer.

If there is something you particularly want and don’t see on the list below, then again contact me, I'd be happy to discuss your needs.

  • I'm also available to come to your home/garden and cook for you there. (Paella Parties al fresco are becoming very popular!) See my Facebook or reviews page from previous happy customers!
