I have spent more than twenty years working in education and I can honestly say that teaching is one of my greatest passions, be it with a group of excitable pre-schoolers or highly driven adults. Having taught across various curriculum areas, and equally varied age ranges, I have had the privilege to work with so many incredible people who have all added their bit of 'sparkle' to the 'Me' I am today, and I am so grateful to each of them.

A little over ten years ago, I decided to broaden the base of my teaching in Psychology and Early Years and qualified as a Montessori teacher, which introduced me to a world that can only be described as magical. Working with young children, watching them learn and grow has been one of the greatest joys of my life. While circumstances (otherwise known as 'Life') at the time meant it was a short-lived experience, the imprint every one of those 'littlees' has left in me is, and will always be, an immeasurable blessing.

I love travelling, learning new things and experiencing different cultures, especially trying new foods. Yes, I too am a real 'foodie'. Much of my time is spent in my kitchen cooking and baking all sorts. I love all things food-related - eating, cooking and baking, watching cooking and baking programmes on TV, YouTube, anywhere really!

Cook Stars feels like a dream where my job is to literally do all my favourite things - only it's very real, and I love it!

I look forward to welcoming you to my classes!

My daughter started last term with Natasha at Cook Stars and absolutely loved it. She was very keen to carry on with this term and has loved each class. It has encouraged her to cook independently at home and as her family we are enjoying all the delicious food she has been making!
Thanks Natasha, we will be booking in again for next term!

Kate

My daughter is quite fussy, and usually has zero to say about anything she ever does.... So to have her come home from her first Cook Stars class and tell me it was "amazing!" Was pretty impressive!!
So far everything she has made with Natasha has been devoured and it will certainly be a regular class for us ongoing ❤️

Zoe

My daughter absolutely loved the class yesterday! You made her feel very comfortable and she was proud of the cookies she made. Thank you.

Emily

My daughter really enjoyed making her lemon tart in your class yesterday after school and it
was delicious.

Jo

my girls had so much fun today thank u so much!

Kelly

Both my boys really enjoyed the class. My 4 year old was able try everything from measuring
the ingredients out and to cracking eggs. He was so proud of the result. My 2 year old just
got stuck in and had a great time making it in his own way with a little help. They were kept
busy with a craft activity and snack while it all cooked which was great too.

Sophie

Another brilliant day for my little chefs, my girls are really enjoying it. They have
gained a lot of confidence and learnt some lovely recipes 🙂. Natasha is great too!

Nicola

this is the one the older kids have gone to! It's great and Natasha
is amazing with the kids. X

Katie

The kids absolutely loved yesterday's session with you! The food tasted amazing and with
both meatball dinners combined I pretty much had dinner sorted! So thanks :)

Katie

My son attended once a week, he is a very introvert child and has some real food
concerns, however Tasha made him feel at easy, he thoroughly enjoyed himself and was keen to go
back the following week.

I would 100% recommend doing these workshops not only for the food skills, but the social skills and
also the confidence it gives the children.

Tasha was amazing very interactive, kind and nothing was too much.

Amanda

My girls had so much fun today thank u so much. I will highly recommend you and the company great experience and girls are so proud they created such wonderful amazing cakes.

Kelly

Fantastic Easter workshop today led by Natasha Singh! My daughter hasn't stopped talking about it and returned home with beautifully decorated cupcakes and Easter basket. I highly recommend these classes!!
