Me and my food

I offer cookery classes and demonstrations for individuals and groups, food consultancy and recipe development. With my extensive experience of cooking delicious, nutritious food for a wide range of diets, I am happy to develop a truly tailored approach with you, whatever you are looking for. From the end of 2019, I will be operating out of my newly renovated Dorset Kitchen, in the village of Motcombe near Shaftesbury.

I was introduced to good food at an early age and soon developed a life-long love of cooking. After my classical training at Leiths School of Food & Wine, I went on to cook at Ottolenghi in London, Le Manoir de Raynaudes in southwest France, Chez Panisse in San Francisco, CKVerbier and CKRock. All these places have influenced the food I love to make, resulting in a modern European style, but with many flavours and techniques from the Mediterranean, the Middle East and California, using the best seasonal, local and organic produce available. I then spent over 10 years working around the world as a private chef, cookery teacher and recipe developer, cooking for and teaching individuals and larger groups, including regular courses at the beautiful Denman College in Oxfordshire. I have also developed recipes for my own gluten-free recipe apps and respected food brands.
