Jim Fisher
Chef Patron
Exeter Cookery School


Chef proprietor and tutor at newly launched Exeter Cookery School, Jim Fisher is an entertaining and engaging demo chef who has honed his skills during an extensive culinary career. A former MasterChef semi-finalist, Jim first started his cheffing in the kitchens of Exeter’s White Hart Hotel. He then went on to cook alongside Rick Stein in Padstow, Alistair Little in Notting Hill and Tony Tobin of Ready, Steady, Cook fame, before upping sticks and heading to the Dordogne to open up a residential cookery school. Despite the locals’ bemusement at the idea of an Englishman teaching anyone to cook, not least in France, CookinFrance became a huge success taking students from all over the world – including France! 15 years later, Jim and his wife, Lucy returned to the UK, following their roots back to their native Devon and are now making a huge success of their exciting new venture on Exeter’s thriving quayside.
