Richard Hughes

Richard Hughes | Cookery School

In a career that has taken him from a hotel pot wash to a Michelin-starred kitchen and from his first restaurant opened with £200 in the bank to The Assembly House in Norwich, 2017 sees the 40th anniversary of his very first day in a professional kitchen.

Beginning his career in the kitchen as a 15-year old at The Imperial Hotel in Great Yarmouth, Richard opened his first restaurant – Number 24 in Wymondham – in 1991.

During his 11 years in Wymondham he also taught at the Hotel School at Norwich City College and began his popular, and still running, Step by Step column in EDP Norfolk Magazine.

In 2002, he left Wymondham to open The Lavender House at Brundall to national acclaim, and very shortly after founded the Richard Hughes Cookery School. Winning the inaugural British Cookery School of the Year, 2017 saw him relocate the school to the Grade I listed heritage site that is The Assembly House in the centre of Norwich, where Richard is Chef Director, allowing him to share his lifelong passion for food with an ever-growing audience.

With numerous awards and accolades to his name Richard is still as passionate, enthusiastic and dedicated as ever (the comments from students speak volumes!) and Richard continues to inspire a host of cooks, both professionally and in home kitchens.

  • The amazing Kestrel designer listened carefully to our thoughts and tastes and helped lead us cleverly to the theme of copper, walnut, glass and natural stone with splashes of blues amongst a more neutral base. We would highly recommend them and their products.

  • Our new kitchen certainly has the wow factor! Apart from the quality of your workmanship we are always impressed with Kestrel’s flexibility in tweaking details to our (often changing) requirements, and your ability to overcome any problems with the minimum of fuss and worry. You have excellent people working for you from demolition to finishing and they were always found to be happy, polite and very co-operative. We have now run out of rooms for you to work on but should we need anything further we will be pleased to make contact again.

  • I would like to congratulate all the staff at Kestrel for their professional and helpful approach during the fitting of our new kitchen. From the initial design until completion, this work was carried out by staff and craftsmen of the highest calibre who were extremely courteous, friendly and helpful in all aspects of the project.

    Mr & Mrs Robson – Norwich

  • To the staff of Kestrel Kitchens who have improved my life. With the impressive drawings and craftsmen who made the units and the friendly efficient people who installed everything. I now love my kitchen!

    Mrs Thurtle – Norwich
    Norwich, Norfolk

  • I was impressed by the relaxed fashion by everyone that carried out their work. It can be a stressful time for the customer as they know they are ‘in the hands’ of professionals who know more than they do. This fact as well as all the upheaval can cause stress. I was amazed to find I did not feel stressed – for which I am also very grateful. Please pass on our many thanks for the combined efforts of all the ‘Kestrel People’.

From the earliest consultation full consideration was given to how I wanted my kitchen. Your co-operation, advice and meticulous attention to the smallest detail was excellent. Disruption within my home during the fitting period was kept to an absolute minimum and let me pay tribute to your excellent team – they are superb tradesmen. Many thanks for a job well done!
