Rupert, just like Happerley’s supporter Phil Vickery, is a former professional rugby player and life long lover of food. His passion for cooking comes a very close second to his passion for rugby.
He has played rugby around the world and as he says: “Those times abroad have given me one valuable lesson: wherever you are and whatever culture you are in, food is the one thing you can rely on to bring people together.”
“In a nutshell, I love food. I embrace the challenge that comes with sharing that enjoyment through my cookery school, my community projects and my family life. To have a passion in life is a marvellous thing. I’m so lucky to have it and l look forward to sharing it with you too.”
Rupert developed his culinary skills by working with Michelin-star restaurants such as Sat Bain’s in Nottingham, Paul Ainsworth’s No.6 in Padstow and also Rick Stein’s.
About The Cookery School
Philleigh Way is a contemporary cookery school whose ethos is to teach, inspire and delight. Set next to stables, a church and an excellent village pub, the cookery school is located on the Roseland Peninsula, bordered by the Atlantic and the deep creeks of the Fal. It is in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
They pride themselves on sourcing Cornwall’s freshest and finest ingredients. Depending on the course you have chosen you may well be foraging or fishing for your lunch on the banks of the river.
