The Kitchen Gossip

It was a great thrill for me to win the Best Tutor category, at the recent 2014 British Cookery School Awards. Many thanks for all your very kind messages of congratulation.

With Christmas just around the corner, we’re all busy planning our seasonal entertaining. If you need some inspiration, come along to my Festive Fare cookery course for some great recipes and tips for preparing ahead. You’ll also find some of my seasonal recipes in the December issue of Yorkshire Life, with more to follow soon in the next issue of in Dales Life.
