food from 4 kitchen

clone tag: 1449997873811868933


I’m Ian. Welcome to my site.

For too long, vegetables have been considered the supporting act. In my kitchen at number 4, vegetables take on the starring role.

You don’t have to be a vegetarian to enjoy trying the recipes on this site, or taking part in one of my Saturday morning classes. Maybe you have a family member or friend who is vegetarian and you need some new ideas, or perhaps you are trying to reduce your meat consumption, or it could be that you just fancy trying something new.

Whether you are a lasagne lover, have a penchant for pastry, a nose for noodles or a craving for curry, there are recipes and classes for everyone.

    Just returned from the Italian cooking course with Ian, the whole experience was great, learnt a lot of that will be easy to transfer to my own kitchen. Ian is very knowledgeable and fun to cook with, looking forward to going again one day.

    Had a great time on 3 July 2021 doing the ‘Cooking with Tofu’ class with my daughter. Really informal, friendly and fun. Great way to spend a Saturday morning. Produced lovely food and the recipe cards means we can do the recipes at home without any problems. Will definitely book onto another class.

    Hi Ian,

    My daughter and I had great fun participating in your online Chinese fakeaway class! We are going to sign up for the Seoul food session. We loved that it was so tasty and packed with veg. Thank you.

    Hi Ian,
    We really enjoyed the “Memories of Turkey” cooking class last night. A great way to spend a Friday evening & delicious healthy food at the end of it. Who knew baklava were so easy to make?!

    Really great evening and inspired my 15 year old son by successfully making bao buns – he’s really chuffed. Thanks again – a great evening of Chinese food.

    I just wanted to thank you for my Birthday Cooking Lesson with Annie, Jenny and Paul on 23rd November. Food was delicious and so easy to prepare.

    Hi Ian,
    For my daughter’s birthday we would like to arrange a Saturday session on your catering course.
    Unfortunately I did not send a request but, instead sent a transfer of £50, which you have refunded.
    Can you please let me know how to sort out a voucher for her so that she can speak to you directly to arrange a suitable date.
    I have given her (Georgia Davis) your phone number to speak to you.

    1. Ian Fischer says:

      Hi. Best way to contact me to book a class is via email. If you or Georgia can drop me an email I can provide you with all the details. Thanks. Ian
