The Isle of Wight Cookery School is a new venture born out of the pandemic in 2020! Based here in the West Wight close to Yarmouth, close to the sea and nestling is some lovely countryside. We started the school with the experiences of a successful catering business started in 2009. We developed all of the courses for teaching in cookery schools to groups of twelve students.

The model is now online and the courses are being transferred to the internet. The school offers in person cookery sessions and has recently had students in to learn about the Importance of Sauces, how to Cook a Three Course Dinner and BBQ Masterclass.

A series of online single recipes cookery sessions are also in the planning stage and will be announced here and communicated through the social media.

I have catered for a wide range of clients and events. While developing the business I was lucky to get involved with, designing cookery courses, presenting on local radio, create and run a food festival for five years, winning three awards for tourism along the way! I managed the WI Cookery School at Denman College, as well as teaching the courses I designed, teaching at other cookery schools and demonstrating at food festivals.

Now I am opening my kitchen to the world of online cookery! I am developing a range of videos to help with learning skills in the kitchen and cooking recipes. I have also started live online cookery sessions where you can buy the ingredients, prepare them prior to the live session and then cook along with me! I provide all the documentation as part of the session. If required, I can design specific sessions for team-building, celebrations and other events.



Recipes I use and create are here for you to download for free, Please let me know how you get on with the recipe.

Customer Testimonial

“I heard from my mum & dad after they had eaten and they were very happy with the meal which also makes us happy.  The special event was given a lift by a special meal in unusual circumstances and the touch of luxury made a difference.

Thank you for an excellent service and your friendly and efficient communications.

Good luck for the future and stay safe.”
