Food & Cooking...

Why learn more about food and cooking?

There are so many times in our lives that our cooking requirements change and sometimes a helping hand is needed to set off in a new direction. Some people find they acquire a food allergy or medical condition which means having to re-think the way they cook or eat; cooking for a family is completely different to cooking for yourself or a couple; you may feel that your repertoire of recipes is tired and in need of refreshing and revamping; you may change your lifestyle such as becoming a vegetarian or vegan or you may just want help for a one off occasion such as a party or a dinner. Whatever your requirements, I can help you to meet them and would enjoy working with you. Food is such an important part of our lives and I can help you to obtain the maximum enjoyment and satisfaction.

Are you ready for some fun??

Join a workshop with your friends  

Learn new skills and be inspired, so building your kitchen confidence.  Let me help you create simple spectacular food with ease and pizzaz using fresh seasonal, local ingredients, maybe including own herbs and produce!

  Looking at pictures can be inspiring.

Research recipes for when time is of the essence, making the most of your ingredients to save money.  We can work together in the familiar surroundings of your own kitchen using your own equipment or with a few of your friends in a different comfortable environment.

Do you wish to cook and serve delicious nutritious dishes with flair?

Apple core was dedicated to promoting the enjoyment of healthy food through a variety of means. I was part of the team who provided after school sessions for local schools, showing children how to grow the fruit and vegetables which would end up on their plates.
