Craven and Ilkley

Hi,
I'm Jane and I am very excited to be bringing Cookstar classes to the Craven and Ilkley area.

I am a mum of 2 fabulous children, Sam and Holly, who along with my husband, Chris, like to get creative in the kitchen. Finding new dishes to attempt, as well as the old trusted favourites. It is sometimes a race between the 4 of us to get cooking first!

As long as I can remember I was brought up with home cooking. I learnt so much being in the kitchen with my mum and other family members, learning new skills but most importantly being chief taster!

From the age of 14, I started working in a local pub on a Saturday lunchtime. This then developed into more hours and I was sometimes left in charge of the kitchen on a busy evening or lunchtime.

During secondary school I also became interested in working with children. A hard decision was to be made - a career in food or working with children.

The food option was put on the back burner and I went to university to complete my teaching degree. My first job as a primary school teacher commenced in 1997, taking a career break for 4 years along the way to have Sam and Holly. I then returned to teach in a nursery school in Skipton, where I have been for just over 8 years.

When I read about Cookstars I couldn't believe that an opportunity to combine my hobby of cooking with working with children actually existed! It was too good to pass by, so here I am! I want to spread the love of cooking whilst teaching about healthy eating and learning different skills and new dishes, both sweet and savoury, in a fun, interactive and hands on approach.
