Experience the Art of Culinary Mastery and Mindset Growth

Our Story:

Founded by the passionate chef and mindset coach, Ilja Abbattista, Pudding Pie Cookery School (Also having been known as Banbury Cookery School) began as a beacon of culinary excellence and personal empowerment. Originating from humble beginnings in Middleton Cheney, we’ve blossomed into a renowned culinary school in Banbury town centre, dedicated to enriching lives through the art of cooking and the power of positive thinking.
