About The Regency Cook

I’m Paul Couchman, The Regency Cook and I help people, like you, fascinated by history and food, rediscover recipes from the 1830s.

How can I help you?

Join in with an online class and cook old recipes and learn a bit of history.

I want to share what I have learned, my passion for cooking from historic recipes and my kitchen with you.

What sort of people come to my courses?

Many people who come to my online courses come for the community – the joy of cooking together with others, they may never have tried an old recipe.

Others are more interested in history than the cookery, they are intrigued by old recipes and the stories behind them and the stories behind the kitchen.

A few are more advanced in food history but want to join with others and make food together.

What is wonderful, for me, is bringing people together at all levels who enjoy old recipes.

My Passion

My aim is to recreating the type of atmosphere of a historic kitchen with different levels and abilities working together in one space. It’s an historic kitchen recreated online.

I host regular pop-up dining events, including charity events, I speak on local radio about food and I am constantly experimenting with old recipes and adding to my large collection of books on historic food cookery.
