“the images…are testament to her attention to detail and ability to capture the moment perfectly.”

In 2000, Brits Jim and Lucy Fisher and their then eight year old daughter, Jenny, moved to the Dordogne, SW France, to set up a cookery school offering cooking lessons to locals and travellers alike. Sixteen years later, Jim and Lucy returned to the UK, to the place they first met and fell in love, in Exeter, offering cookery classes.

Exeter Cookery School –  located at the heart of the city’s historic and picturesque quayside area – offers a range of fun and friendly, hands-on cookery courses.

Whether you want to learn the art of making perfect pastry or spun sugar shapes or would like to discover new cooking skills – from cooking fish or meat to baking bread or making classic desserts – Exeter Cookery School has something to suit every taste and skill level.

At the heart of the business are Jim and Lucy Fisher, whose extensive experience in running a successful cookery school and passion for putting flavour back into food has made Exeter Cookery School an instant success.

The foodie enterprise has gained an enviable reputation for giving individuals the chance to learn to cook the way they have always dreamed, but also providing corporate and private groups the opportunity to enjoy a unique culinary experience in a sophisticated, waterside setting.

When Jim & Lucy met Venetia

Jim and Lucy Fisher, owners of Exeter Cookery School, first worked with Venetia Norrington on a photo shoot promoting a pop-up cookery event at Bridwell Park. Jim Fisher says:

There was an instant rapport with Venetia and the images that followed are testament to her attention to detail and ability to capture the moment perfectly. And so, when we were looking for a photographer for a photographic shoot at Exeter Cookery School, featuring some of my winter warmer recipes for an editorial feature in Exeter Living magazine, Venetia came to mind immediately. We were really impressed by Venetia’s eye for a great foodie shot as well as her professionalism. She really is a joy to work with.”
