Masterchef Finalist 2011 and now a well known Chef and Food Consultant working across the country.

Sara’s cooking is a celebration of both her heritage and the wonderful local produce that the UK has to offer. Sara's ethos is simplicity and a handful of ingredients and this is beautifully portrayed in her cooking style as well as in her teaching.


Using simple fresh ingredients, with skilful presentation and a twist of creativity, Sara will ensure you have a memorable culinary experience whether it is an evening at the dining club, a special occasion at another venue or attending one of her cookery classes.

Supper Club:

Sara @ St John’s is York’s first Dining Club. Set in the heart of the city with ample public parking next door, it provides an unforgettable experience with food served in the relaxed setting of her beautiful Victorian house against the backdrop of York Minster. The venue is an experience that is as much about culinary delights as social interaction.

The evening comprises a four course tasting menu and you will experience great attention to detail from tableware to food and a complete absence of formality. The dining club offers the opportunity to meet like-minded people from across the city and beyond, and enjoy a chance to chat and laugh together whilst sharing memorable food. At Sara@ St John’s you can witness, first hand, the passion that goes into making great food and sample some of the amazing dishes that Sara created on MasterChef.
