I cover the Early years goals, primary and secondary national curriculum objectives as well as all seasonal occasions such as Valentines, Saints days, Easter, Halloween, Guy Fawkes, Christmas, New Year and Chinese New Year.

Pupils learn how be safe within the kitchen and prepare for cooking following food safety and hygeine guidelines, they learn how to work together to develop their skills and carry out a whole host of techniques such as mixing, blending, weighing, measuring, combining, rolling, shaping, slicing, twisting, chopping, pouring, the list goes on!

Schools and youth organisations
I am able to run cookery classes within a classroom environment whether it be pre-school, primary, secondary or college and bring all of the required equipment and ingredients with me. I tailor the sessions to meet the needs of your pupils and can create cookery workshops and courses for your educational establishment. Cooking confidence classes, after-school clubs, in-school talks and demonstrations.

I am also able to run a wide range of workshops after school and for clubs and associations such as Outreach programmes, Brownies, Beavers, Guides, Scouts, Young Carers, Duke of Edinburgh Award skills section on Bronze, Silver and Gold, Army cadets and so fourth. 

I am fully DBS checked with cookery school insurance in place and have Paediatric First Aid training. I also have Primary Qualified Teacher Status and taught as a primary school teacher for over eight years. 

My aim is to make cooking accessible for all and for every child or young adult to leave with new skills and confidence whilst learning within a fun, relaxed environment.
