Hi my name is Giovanni, I'm 29 years old and I am a freelance chef. I started to work in Italy and than I came to London to make new working and life experiences.
My classes are approximately 1 hour and half and are structured and well organised. Content comprises the teaching of basic culinary skills, healthy eating and food technology. A meal - main or dessert - is cooked every lesson and the dishes cooked are familiar, well known and are drawn from many cultures and traditions.
It is a cooking workshop so all participants can cook if interested or you can see me cooking. I will let you know how to prepare the recipe first. We can enjoy the dish together or you get to take the food home if you wish. 2-3 hours. Dishes such as tortilla de patata, paella, croquetas... Maximum 4 people. And you want to practise Spanish, just let me know.
I like to discover and to see the connection and differences between a professional chef and a home cook and in my lessons I am trying to give my experience and knowledge to cooking at home. I believe in trying and working with the hands and to open the mind for new taste and experience.
My teaching method is to break everything down into steps. Some people find trying out and cooking new recipes daunting so I like to show people that it's easy when you split the sum of recipe into parts.
My methodology is to start of easy and then build up towards something more complicated. Of course, I will work toward and by student demands, but essential knowledge is key. I will work with students on understanding, interpreting and even tweaking recipes. My aim is to ease them into experimenting, as it is the best way to learn your way around the kitchen and cooking.
Lets get stuck in and creative! Growing up dyslexic i believe in learning whilst doing, seeing, tasting and smelling the beautiful flavours! Get excited! Food is about bringing people and cultures together.
I love cooking for my family and always experimenting with new recipes. Italian cuisine is considered one of the healthiest, richest and most joyful cuisines in the world! I think it's very important to be able to eat in the healthiest way and share the mealtime with your loved ones.
First is to find the stile of existing cooking. Tell about the background and story behind.
My students were taught the academic as well as the practical aspects of working in a kitchen environment, having to do all the basic tasks right up to the fine aspects of what to expect in their working life in a kitchen.
I tend to use a combination of teaching techniques, handouts, live cookery demonstration, superivsed pro active cookery classes, hands on instruction, eat what you make and tutoring whilst learner is doing. Happy to create a bespoke extended cookery course.
I explain the recipe face to face or online. Plus I can cook with you and describe step by step the recipe alive. I can provide in the end of the lesson a list of all ingredients required and suggest dairy free options.
My teaching method is basically to show the person(s) what is required in basic cooking, techniques, safety aspects of cooking (do's and don'ts) and the achievements/sense of satisfaction you get from this. I have a light hearted approach to teaching and I feel that is the best way to learn, without too much pressure. Message me on this site to discuss your requirements.
most lessons are given to students or general public at home. basic food safety, knife skills and cooking techniques. Lessons are given with very clear precis instructions but at a relaxed slow pace. Tutor lead demonstrations and full support whilst student carries out activities.
I am happy to teach one-to-one or in groups. All my classes are tailor-made to suit students' previous experience and skills. You will learn to cook from scratch your choice of vegetarian and/or vegan dishes and/or traditional Greek desserts.
The first thing that anyone what to become a cook has to know is the very basilar Health & safety notions. How to become a food handler is the most important step that anyone need to do before enter in a kitchen.
I think that cooking and baking should be fun and interesting. Cooking is a life skill that everyone requires and if there can be enjoyment gained from it then it makes life easier. I think that baking is a great hobby and I love the fact that my mum taught me and want to be able to pass that skill along.
I approach teaching with a hands on approach. I believe people learn well from a "monkey see monkey do" approach but I have also got the theory in the bag if need be. I hope that when you leave with some of my knowledge and experience you will be a happy chappy.
Although the basics will vary only a little, lessons have to be tailored to individuals - it goes without saying that a student looking for a grounding in basic, affordable nutrition will have far different demands from somebody looking for fine-dining lessons to cater for a dinner party or another looking to learn about costing and budgeting for a large family.
20 years experience as a French chef and 13 years experience teaching cookery in Further Education in the UK give me the ideal knowledge and skills to teach cookery lessons to anyone from entry to advanced level either in one to one lessons or in small groups.
I am a qualified (DITALS certificate) and experienced Italian teacher and Life Coach. I run a school of languages "Ad Meliora Academy" and our students improve their languages learning different skills. - Which subject(s) do you teach? Italian (grammar, literature, culture and phonetics in a peculiar and enjoyable way!).
I have a patient and caring nature, and I enjoy teaching other people. I learn from mistakes, and I am always calm and collected when it comes to other people making mistakes. I always encourage, and talk the student through what went wrong, and I will then encourage to try again. Tailor made lessons for each student, as no two students are the same.
I work with children, pre-schoolers and primary school kids at the moment. In the sessions the children are given the opportunity to work individually and collectively, creating something delicious to eat. They are provided with a recipe to follow which I guide them through at a gentle pace.
I provide practical explanation in each lessons which is easier for students to understand cooking and its techniques. I provide important ideas, notes and recipes to make healthy drinks, snakes or meals which is suitable for any non meat eaters.
All my classes are structured and planned in advance. My students pick from a set menu of dishes they would like to learn to cook. I provide a fun interactive environment to learn how to cook your chosen dish including top tips. All students get branded masala kit and recipe on completion of class.
I start with basic steps and progress to more advanced work. This means that every main step that is needed to create a bake has been covered. I don't expect people to know certain things. I teach everything from how to store the ingredients correctly, to what you can cook with them.
I am very easy going, patient, and I can understand the different needs of every individual and find ways to accommodate them. I like an interactive approach. I like to make sure not to move onto next stages without making sure everything is well understood and learnt.
For me, cooking is a mixture of practised techniques and brand new experiments - and I always aim to have a good balance of both in my lessons! I feel its really important to encourage creativity and allow for mistakes and so if I'm teaching a basic technique will go on to suggest ways to adapt it and transform it in the future, and tips to save the day when things go wrong too.
My teaching method is to ensure you learn while having fun! Teaching you the background to dishes and giving you insight into Spanish culture and the Spanish language.
Everyone learns differently so depending on how you learn, that is how I will teach. If you need to watch me make something before you try then that is what we will do or I can talk you through it step by step. either way we will do it together and you will learn how to make something delicious.
