The Oxford Blue was recommended to me in a very random way.

A Blue is the equivalent of University colours, and can only be earned by those who play against Oxford (or in his case Cambridge) in the Varsity match of particular sports.) Turns out, whilst we girls were playing on the Nursery Ground (the warm-up area essentially!) The Oxford Blue was playing for the opposition on the main ground!) I was lucky enough to represent Cambridge in both skiing and cricket while I studied there, and with three Half Blues, and one Full Blue somewhere in my loft, the world of the Cambridge Blue was one which I once knew well.I sat on the Ospreys Committee – a committee made up of female Blues, and enjoyed regular socials with the Hawks Committee – the men’s Blues social club, at their gentleman’s club in the centre of Cambridge.A proud Osprey, Alleycat and Catz Whisker, I enjoyed four years of Cambridge socialising, formal halls and drinking games.

And yet six years after graduating, that entire world seems a lifetime away.

Rachel formed Rachel’s Kitchen in 2010, and teaches masterclasses in all kinds of cookery – from fresh pasta, to Tapas-making, sushi, and macaroons.

As well as evening and weekend classes, Rachel also runs Hen Dos and Team Building events.

Whenever anyone asked if I was also there alone, I began explaining that I had a date, but that he was running late, which inevitably led on to me telling people about the blog and the challenge.

We moved to the long communal dining table, which would double as our classroom for the evening.

It’s an anecdote I often use when I realise my date is a cricket fan.
