1:1 Bespoke teaching at home - Cobbled Kitchen Reviews:


Danielle is a brilliant teacher who gave me lots of brilliant ideas for things to do with my leftovers. She is knowledgeable, generous and talented and I would highly recommend her to anyone who would like to improve their cooking skills. Stuart

Thank you Danielle for such a fun and informative Cobbled Kitchen session! We really enjoyed our couple of hours making an incredible FOUR Thai dishes and only having to reheat this gorgeous feast when I got home from work was a dream! The handouts you made to accompany our recipes were a great way to remind us how we did it all. Thanks so much!  Emma

Lots of people have asked about Jez and James's cooking lesson! Curries have now been cooked several times by Jez- we are all hooked! Thanks so much, Fran

I want to say a huge thank you to Danielle. I bought my husband a voucher from The Cobbled Kitchen for Christmas to enjoy 2 hours of cookery lessons in our own home. Danielle personally delivered the voucher to my house before Christmas as she was worried about the post (even though it was within PO guidelines) - talk about going the extra mile!! On Monday Mark welcomed Danielle into our home and in the space of 2 hours they had cooked 3 meat recipes and 2 vegetarian dishes. I was out for a meeting and when I arrived home lunch was waiting for me and we now have a freezer full of food! Last night we had the chicken curry they'd cooked and I told Mark that it was the best curry he'd ever made and the chana dhal was out of this world!! Danielle please feel free to come and take over my kitchen any time!! Mark and I both benefited from this amazing experience xxx  Carol

Lovely 3 hours with Danielle including a shopping trip to stock the larder in my new kitchen. 
Delicious Chorizo, onion & artichoke omelette for lunch.
Kids new favourite chicken pie for dinner and lamb tagine prepared & marinating for dinner party this weekend. Can't wait till next time. -Feeling inspired. 

Have now had 2 bespoke sessions with Danielle including her coming shopping with me to fill my new kitchen with ingredients. I was fed up with cooking the same meals week in week out for my family.  Now I feel much more confident (intuitively) in putting together new meals from scratch. I have also enjoyed a group course making sauces and looking forward to the paella one later this month.
Danielle's style & expertise means she tunes in to you straight away making the sessions fun, enjoyable and extremely productive.
I am amazed at what can be achieved in a couple of hours!  If you are considering it - just do it - you won't regret it!  Tara

I was looking for some cooking inspiration for family meals that I could make for the whole family. I've got a fussy 3 year old and a 1 year old with some allergies (and also fussy!) and always seem to end up making the same meals, and then usually my husband and I eat something different in the evening. I came across Danielle through the St Albans Mums network and I liked what I saw. She looked like the kind of help I needed - simple, tasty & uncomplicated! I had a great couple of sessions with Danielle where she showed me how easy it is to make interesting & tasty meals for the whole family. I had fun and she gave me the confidence and inspiration to go out of my comfort zone! Thank you!  Carol

Danielle came to me today to help me with some cooking tips. I had a lovely time and was surprised how easy it is to whip up a tagine! Thank you x Helga

Thanks so much for our rustic French cooking Cobbled Kitchen experience; we had a wonderful evening, learnt lots and enjoyed a lovely dinner with (our friends). Craig and Nick


Kids-a-Cobbling Reviews:

"Cooking with Danielle at Kids-A-Cobbling is far better than cooking with my mum" - 10 year old Alice after her Kebabs and Koftas session. Danielle adjusted her recipes to fit our food allergies effortlessly and the children came home with the most delicious dinner - and the desire to do more cooking! Jenny

My 6 year old had a fantastic experience at the Cobbled Kitchen today and is raring to attend another session. He's come home proud and excited and eager to tell me all about his new knowledge and skills. To top it off the food was absolutely delicious enjoyed by all. Thank you! Vicky

Great! Fantastic variety of savoury food (not just cupcakes) great hostess and we will be back! Sarah

My girls had a great time making pasta sauces and sharing them at dinner time. Thank you. My turn next, I want to have a go without the kids. Highly recommend. The food is carefully thought through, healthy and encourages independence in the children when cooking. Sinead


Cobbled Kitchen Social Reviews:

Danielle is inspiring, creative and incredibly knowledgeable. At our "cobbled together social" she was both extremely professional and super friendly - I can't rate her highly enough. Don't hesitate, she'll amaze you! Donna

I had a fantastic evening learning about curries. The end result was super tasty and I have some yummy leftovers too. It was lovely to hang out with mummy friends too. Now looking into what session I can do next.  Louisa


Cobbled Together Reviews:

This is the best thing I've done in ages, Danielle not only showed us how to prepare simple yet tasty dishes but also shared a whole array of hints and tips to make mealtimes just that little bit easier. Cannot wait to put my newfound skills into action! Highly recommend one of Danielle's courses, thank you x Judy

I joined in with one of Danielle's Cobbled Together classes - two hours of bringing together lots of ingredients (Lovely Leftovers) from the fridge, freezer and store cupboard to make some tasty food to enjoy at home. We made stuffed vegetables with rice and lentils, pulled pork wraps, a pasta and pesto fritatta, risotto balls and little lamb pasties and ate lunch together. Danielle is truly an instinctive cook, with a great understanding of flavour combinations and has lots of handy tips to share. I'd definitely recommend a few hours at The Cobbled Kitchen!  Ren Behan

Fab fun, incredible value, highly inspiring. Two hours of hands-on cooking, a lovely lunch and dinner to take-away? What's not to LOVe!? Lisa


Catering Reviews:

[Please note, I no longer offer a catering service but am very happy to recommend a couple local people I know well, who are fantastic! See my catering page for details.]

I had my 60th birthday party at home this July and Danielle's 'Cobbled Kitchen' provided a large chicken and chorizo and a seafood paella. It was cooked on wood at Danielle's home and delivered hot and fragrant. We were thrilled with the result - absolutely delicious and plenty for seconds! I highly recommend and will use again - brilliant for a party! Cherrie

I recently celebrated a joint 40th birthday and Danielle catered for over 40 people. The food was truly amazing (and lots of it!). Her prices were also far more reasonable than other catering options in Hertfordshire. Exactly what we wanted, flexible with arrangements and everyone at the party commented on the delicious home cooked food. Will recommend to friends and family and will be sure to ask Danielle to cook again for our get togethers, big or small. Thanks again Danielle! Ivan and Maria

Danielle catered for a retirement party - about 35 of us - just before Christmas. It was a great success with the delicious food being one of the biggest talking points. All of the thank you notes mentioned the food! Danielle helped me choose the menu in a relaxed way. It was fun. She arrived before the event, completing a delicious fish paella 'live'. The vegetarian lasagne went in a flash. The hot cheese board with figs and honey looked divine on the table (and of course tasted divine too). Oh and the date and butterscotch cake! I could go on..... A lovely touch was a printed menu. Thank you so much Danielle and The Cobbled Kitchen.  Kay


Danielle recently catered for a family gathering at our home to celebrate our son's 1st Holy Communion, and I can't rate her highly enough! The food was amazing, everyone commented on how fantastic it was - rustic and wholesome but with fun, interesting twists. I've never seen lasagne rolled rather than layered before, not only did it taste fantastic it looked pretty too! 

Danielle was very patient as I was choosing the menu beforehand from her great suggestions and on the day itself, came to our home while we were at the service, prepped and cooked, laid it all out and tidied up. 

Thank you Danielle, fabulous service from a lovely lady! Rachel

Danielle is the most perfect host to have in your home! She catered for 25+ people with her delicious Paella, Lamb kebabs, salads and halloumi. I had the best party as I didn't have to do a thing except prepare the drinks (smile emoticon) Every single guest said how amazing the food was - thank you SO MUCH, Karen x

Thank you for your delicious pork, leek and apple hotpot. It was great to know dinner was all taken care of. The children ate it up fast knowing it was one of your dishes! X  Lisa
