My classes can be from 1-6 hours but for online I recommend no more than 80 minutes. You will need to have the ingredients to hand or if you live locally I am able to provide these for you. I will adapt the recipe to all food intolerances. I will email you the recipe initially and talk about any additional needs you or your child may have and what is your most effective way of learning. I try and make my lessons fun, interactive, chatty and friendly and I've had no complaints so far!
I have run my own cookery school for children for three years now but since covid-19 I have not been able to teach my usual classes hence why I am offering online tuition. I am a Mummy to two daughters so know how to make economical, speedy and tasty meals to suit all the family.
