How great would it be you could use this course again?

This course has been created for so many of you, whether you are a teenager at school doing your Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) award, or perhaps you are a parent home-schooling your children and would like to teach them how to cook, but lack the confidence to know where to get started. Here you will find some excellent value professional cookery lessons from the convenience of your own home. Remember that you have the video's for LIFE, so you can watch them again and again. Students from 8yrs (with support) to 80 years can enjoy learning how to cook from scratch, it's never too late.

I'm really proud of my experience with SEND students, which has given me the tools to support you all.

If you’re finding yourself nodding along to all this, you’re not alone…

My purpose in life is to teach adults (young and old) to cook and I love it!

My students learn, using professional chef skills, how to cook amazing recipes that are simple, fun and rewarding.

I'm a specialist teacher because I have an extraordinary background and I focus on teaching with nutrient-dense ingredients for great health.

In 2022 I qualified as a nutrition therapist because I know how powerful food is and I want to be in the best health myself and to pass that on to my students. I can now be sure that I am offering the best tuition, providing recipes that are not only delicious but are nutrient-focussed.

"Thank you soooo much, Be, for your support and in particular for the lightning quick response on this final section. Matthew has learnt loads (and I have also benefited as my cooking skills are very limited!). This has provided the structure and inspiration he needed. I've been recommending you to a number of Mums I know :-) Best wishes for a fabulous summer. "

"Dear Be I can’t thank you enough for your lovely comments about Max’s cooking – your positive feedback has meant a huge amount to him. He has loved your cookery course and learnt so many new and helpful skills over the past few months. It’s been lovely to watch his confidence grow and the whole family has benefited from the delicious (and healthy) meals he’s been cooking on Sundays. He’s wants to keep on practising your recipes and I’m sure, when he’s got some more time on his hands after his GCSE’s, he’ll be signing up for another one of your courses. Many thanks again"

"Dear Be, Thank you for empowering and inspiring Lola to cook nutritious plant-based meals at home! She makes herself delicious lunches for school and has taken over making dinners for the family most nights of the week. Lola is a ???? chef - from meal planning to shopping at the farmer's market, from chopping and spicing to baking and plating, her meals are prepared with know-how and love. Your DofE course has given us yet another reason why we are the luckiest parents in the world to have Lola for a kid! Kind regards"
