Abinger Cookery School

We aim to fire up your imagination with courses that are practical, inspired and of course – fun!

Jake Pinn

Jake has been with the cookery school for five years and he is passionate about creating inventive and tasty plates of food. His career in cooking began when he was 19 and since then, he has enjoyed working in a broad range of settings – from bistros, fine-dining restaurants and high-end hotels to private catering and luxury yachts. Now settled in Surrey with a young family, he enjoys coming to work and sharing his experience and knowledge with people who have a similar passion for food. Outside of work, he likes to experiment in the kitchen while cooking for his wife and three young children as well as hosting supper clubs.

Cat Rochefort

Cat is originally from Reigate and grew up around Sussex and Surrey, but she has strong connections to France. Since studying French at university in Leeds, she’s moved between France and the UK several times, developing her knowledge of regional produce and learning from different chefs along the way.

She received classic French and European training from Leiths based on traditional French skills like sauce-making and preparing different types of meats and other modern techniques that covered anything from vegan cooking to French patisserie and classic British desserts.

Cat also has a particular interest in Japanese food and has worked with a Japanese chef who taught her loads about Japanese food, which has helped channel her interest into usable skills. She’s also passionate about fire cooking, having worked with Hunter Gather Cook and The Salt Box, and spends a lot of time cooking feasts for her family and friends with their fire pit on the beach!

Getting there by car

From Dorking town centre follow the one way system onto the A25 towards Guildford. Continue along the A25 until you enter the village of Abinger Hammer. The Cookery School is located on the right handside after the clock tower.

Getting there by public transport

The nearest station is Gomshall (First Great Western) which has good links into London (via Guildford or Redhill), Gatwick and Reading. The station is 0.5 miles from the cookery school and reachable by taxi, bus or a short walk.
