Rosemary Shrager, the ebullient and vivacious chef, moved her cookery school from Amhuinnsuidhe Castle on the Hebrides to Swinton Park in 2003.
Her school has been running for four years to wide acclaim, and has been voted one of the top ten cookery schools in the UK by several publications (The Observer October 2001, House and Garden May 2002 and The Independent August 2004).
She has previously worked for Pierre Koffman at Tante Claire and also with Jean Christoffe Novelli. Heralded as “the wizard of the new cookery school” (Tatler), Rosemary is passionate about food and she teaches with an infectious enthusiasm. Her “passion for the subject and desire to impart her knowledge, which she does with warmth and verve, cannot fail to fire those fortunate enough to be her pupils” (Claire MacDonald).
Her two TV series, Rosemary : Castle Cook (and her accompanying recipe book) and Rosemary on the Road have been well reviewed, and she enjoys a global following. She has recently been filming in the USA for a series for the Discovery Channel, Rosemary Queen of the Kitchen, and she is also starring in an ITV series due to be transmitted this winter.
