The key to cooking moreish, healthy food is to maximise on flavour using spices, herbs and umami flavours (that mild but lasting aftertaste that is difficult to describe) and I can teach you how to do this by building up your own core set of flavours and basic food combinations based around your tastes and food preferences.
Cooking from scratch has a big impact on achieving good nutrition but this often intimidates clients and they’re always surprised how simple and quick it is to rustle up a super-nutritious meal.
My work is my passion!
I have worked with celebrities, families, nannies and housekeepers teaching them how to cook. Having worked in many areas of nutrition through public health, I can also offer advice about cooking for specific groups including children, older people or those training for a sports event.
Aside from practical cookery days I also create bespoke menu plans and recipe booklets tailored to your specific needs, which could include a health concern or dietary preference such as a food allergy, intolerance or avoidance of meat.
If you’re interested in corporate events then sessions can be organised either at your place of work or local cookery school and are a great way to help improve the health of your staff.
I truly love everything about food and frequently frustrate my other half talking about supper before even getting out of bed in the morning. Having learnt to cook at an early age I have been surrounded by food in some way ever since. I took my first weekend job in a local cafe and spent the following 15 years funding myself through school and university working in some of the best restaurants London had to offer, expanding my knowledge of food.
Now, I’m not a trained chef but would prefer to be thought of as ‘a passionate cook that enjoys getting it wrong sometimes!’ My style is cooking light and healthy using unprocessed ‘real foods’, minimising the use of sugar and other refined carbohydrates and focusing more on plants, lean proteins and plenty of healthy fats. I also like to teach clients about portion sizes and mindfulness which have proven to be useful tools for clients looking to lose weight. It’s really not that hard and alongside a healthy lifestyle and good sleep it won’t take long before you start to experience the benefits of your body working at its very best.
