I am a professional chef, cookery teacher and food writer. I have been cooking ever since I could climb on a chair as a little girl and reach the kitchen worktop. In 2010 I decided the kitchen was the place for me, leaving a career in the City to start a wedding cake company and train as a chef at Leiths School of Food and Wine. I graduated from the professional diploma with distinction and won the Louis Latour wine student of the year award. I now run The Round Table, a pop up cookery school offering tailor made classes to individuals, groups and corporate clients.
I love teaching people to cook and am passionate about real food for everyone. I teach across a range of cuisines and styles, all underpinned by an ethos of great recipes, quality ingredients and classic skills. I have an interest in food for health and can provide help with dairy free, gluten free and Paleo menus. As well as running The Round Table, I have run classes at a number of high profile cookery schools, along with cookery demonstrations at large corporate events. My work has been featured in The Times, Brides Magazine, Squires Sugarcraft, Fabulous Magazine, the Mirror and Crafts Beautiful.
I have written two books: The Vegetarian Pantry, a modern, seasonal vegetarian book focussing on fresh and simple cooking and Supercute Cookies, a biscuit baking and decorating book. I also write seasonal food articles for Lost in London magazine and put together a collection of seasonal farmers market recipes for their book, Lost in London: Adventure in the City’s Wild Outdoors.
When I am not working, I spend my time in the country as a mum, growing vegetables and inventing recipes.
