I have a wide range of cooking knowledge and skills along with a relaxed and friendly approach. I teach small groups or on a one-to-one basis in your home. Please get in touch for a tailor-made class to suit you.

Recipe testing and development
I offer a recipe developing, writing and testing service. I particularly enjoy writing (and eating!) vegetarian recipes but write vegan, meat, fish, quick and healthy recipes, too.

Food styling
I have a graphic eye, show an impeccable eye for detail and bring energy and enthusiasm to every project. I have styled food from magazines and books, advertising stills and packaging, to moving images and TV. I have also presented cookery how-to videos for a fish recipe website. Visit my portfolio page to see more of my styling work.

Clients include: Asda, Fabulous Magazine, Men’s Health, FHM, GQ, Optimum TV, New England Seafood, Morrisons, Nutribullet, The Guardian and Quarto Publishing.
