These are tailored individually to suit you, and can be anything you want them to
be from a mini baking session where you cook a cake and cookies, a cooking session
creating 2 x dishes (savoury and sweet) or more complex dinner party food, literally
whatever you want to cook - the sky’s the limit!
NEW! Tandem Cooking Sessions as easy as a riding a bike!
2 hours £60 per person inc ingredients (Choose from selection of dishes) Bring a
friend or family Member and cook in Tandem, 2 dishes each.
I offer fun and educational cooking demonstrations. These are tailored to the clients
individual needs and are dependent on the facilities available. The question and
answers sessions afterwards provides lively entertainment!
These fun talks are about how we make sense of the world, how food is linked to memories.
These are very popular and are interactive. They include a quiz, an outline of how
food evokes memories and aroma pots to stimulate our senses. With audience participation,
we re-visit memories of foods gone by, illustrating how Taste the Memory links in
with it all.
My cooking sessions are open to anyone, including Teenagers going off to university.

Creativity is part of
the Therapeutic Process!
Cooking allows you to do something that you are in control of, which is often the
opposite if you are lacking in confidence or are under stress at work or other situations
that you find yourself in taking you out of your comfort zone.
Each recipe has a great story to tell, as you cook you create memories with the conversations
you have during cooking and eating each one. Cooking helps you to re-connect with
your family – brilliant if you have challenging Teenagers, who often just need a
some attention and time which we often forget as we try and allow them some independence,
we forget the art of communication (or is that they forget?)
Cooking is nurturing, and evokes a sense of security and relief from anxiety
We experience life through our senses and by stimulating through our 5 senses can
help keep our minds alert, in effect exercise for the brain! With cooking we touch
the food, smell and taste it, look as it is presented and hear it as it cooks!
