My adventures as a home cook

Prize Winners

Prize winning baker: I have won many cookery prizes at local horticultural society shows. Last year I won the cup for best cake in the summer show (a rather delicious chilli chocolate cake).

My experience: As well as spending hours in my own kitchen, I do love a cookery class and I’ve tried lots of different schools: Bread Ahead (sourdough and various other bread workshops); Leith’s Cookery School (advanced cookery skills); Bertinet Kitchen Cookery School (bread making and pastry; patisserie & viennoiserie), Wildes Cheeses (cheese making).

I also spent a year working part time at a wonderful local café and deli, mainly in the kitchen, makings soups and salads and baking bread and cakes.
