Hi, I'm Sharon and the proud owner of Cook Stars Southend and Rochford.
I have wanted to own my own business for many years, one that would give me the ability to indulge my passion for cooking, baking and teaching, my only disappointment is that it has taken me this long to fulfil my dreams.
Having spent the last 25 years in a Corporate environment, my work/home life balance has always been a bit of a juggling act and having a 10 year old daughter who's social activities require military precision to the extent that we sometimes believe she needs her own social secretary!
I have always had a passion for cooking and get immense pleasure in teaching my daughter lifelong skills and with her being such a big fan of Great British Bake Off it was a light bulb moment when I heard about Cook Stars as the would enable me to inspire other children to enjoy and experience the wonders of food and cooking, so Cook Stars Southend and Rochford was born!
As we are fortunate enough to live by the sea and when we do manage to get some free time there is nothing better than on a hot sunny day (yes, we do have these occasionally) than to take a stroll down to the seafront to have a one of Southend's little pleasures.... a Rossi's ice cream!
