The Yarrow Family at the Cookery School in Scotland


The Yarrow Cookery School was established in 2020 by Richard and Sophia Yarrow. The couple believe that cooking should be fun, inspiring and sustainable. All classes are designed to be interactive, hands-on and full of flavour. This family founded cookery school has become one of Scotland's most exciting places to learn about cookery, whilst enjoying a fantastic day out. 

The founding ethos of the cookery school is to share the joy of food and culinary education, using local and sustainable, East Lothian produce. 

Richard studied at both The Orchard and Ballymaloe cookery schools', going on to train in a variety of kitchens and restaurants. His charisma and kindness make him an excellent chef and teacher. 

Sophia runs the online and marketing elements of The Yarrow Cookery School and manages business development. Sophia or one of our fantastic assistants will be on hand at cookery classes to welcome guests and ensure they are looked after holistically. 


The couple are both ambassadors for the mental and physical health benefits that have been proven when cooking from scratch and sharing meals. Their clients can feel confident and relaxed when working or learning with this dynamic duo. 

We had a fabulous day yesterday learning to cook Thai food with @yarrowcook out in East Lothian. It was such a lovely day, so nice to do something totally different, learn some new skills AND get to eat the results!
