My love of food began when I was quite young; I grew up on a smallholding in rural Gloucestershire and as soon as I could stand on a stool I would help my mum in the kitchen preparing meals, making bread, cakes and all sorts of other delicious things.
When I was 18 years old I completed a year long diploma course at Leith's School of Food & Wine and that's when my passion for food blossomed.
Since my year at the renowned cookery school in London, I have embarked on a diverse career in food. My experience has included:
Working as a private chef in numerous prestigious residences in the UK & Europe;
Setting up, running and then selling a thriving cafe-deli business;
Touring the UK with numerous music artists as a pastry chef;
Working as a second chef in an independent Michelin recommended restaurant;
Outside catering for weddings, private functions, shooting lodges;
and much more.
Setting up Home Farm Kitchen was my way of getting back to work & using my skills in a professional capacity again after taking a few years out to be a full time mum.
I live in Eastnor, in the beautiful Herefordshire countryside, with my husband & our 4 boys. We love outdoor life, particularly walking, biking, campfires and obviously cake!
