Welcome to the


Cookery lessons created to fit around you


A lifelong passion for cooking, baking, gardening and most of all for bringing friends and family together through delicious food, led to the creation of the YORKSHIRE KITCHEN TABLE.  YKT is based in a small village near to Thirsk, in the heart of beautiful North Yorkshire, the setting for the Yorkshire Vet Series and of course, the home of James Herriot. 

How it works:

The key advantages of YKT are that we plan the date and time of courses around your diary and we restrict courses to groups of four.     Simply click on the 'cookery lessons' link at the top of the page, then browse through the courses on offer, find three friends to do the course with you - then  e mail/call YKT to agree a day/date.   Once booked, the course can then be paid for on line through the online shop.  The courses are aimed at those who want to learn how to cook, all the way through to those who want to create a seven course Gala dinner.   So there is something for everyone.


We are always keen to know what our customers want, so please let us know if you do not see a course that meets your needs and we will endeavour to create one for you.  

  To learn more, browse through our site or contact us directly via e mail. We really look forward to hearing from you soon.


Here Just for You

YORKSHIRE KITCHEN TABLE is passionate about providing creative cookery course solutions for every customer.  We specifically schedule courses at a time to suit you.  We are happy to tailor a course to meet your needs.  If you have any questions call or e mail and Christine will be in touch with you.


Fun and Useful

Many cookery schools are aimed at the already proficient and confident cook.  Here at the YKT we cater for all abilities from the complete novice through to preparing elaborate Sparkly dinners.  Our lessons are small - only four people - and so we are able to give excellent tuition, providing you with the essentials that will enable you to go home and create amazing food for those you love.  Simply browse through the courses, then ensure you have a party of four,  e mail Christine with your course choice and preferred dates and times.  Courses run at week ends, week days and evenings - whatever suits you best. Once booked onto a course simply pay on line through the shop - so easy - we work around what suits you!


Easy to Follow

You will find a selection of our favourite recipes here at YKT.   The instructions are clear and enhanced with helpful hints such as, whether and when to freeze, how far in advance can you prepare, batch cooking ideas and top tips to help you get ahead.  Some will also available as demonstrations on the video link.

As you may be able to tell - all the photos on the site are of 'real' food cooked here at YKT and not as you can see in anyway enhanced!



Step by Step Guide

If you can't come to a course don't worry - you will soon be able to join our online community by clicking on one of our video demonstrations.  You can then recreate the recipes in your own kitchen with Christine as your guide.  Our services such as this are all designed to help make cooking easier and stress-free. 


Home Cooked for you and yours

Launching in the next few months will be the YKT store.  If you are local to Thirsk and want to eat healthy, home cooked food but find you are just too busy, you will soon be able to place an order online through our store.   Orders placed before 1200 noon will be cooked on the day ready for collection.  We will also stock a range of home made frozen meals, puddings and cakes.
