My name is Liz Ewang and I am the proud owner of Cook Stars Bedford North and Rushden
My introduction to Cook Stars came through attending classes with my little boy, Elijah (who was 2 at the time), and the sessions made a lasting impression not just on my son, but on me as well. I noticed Elijah becoming more interested in what was happening each time I was in the kitchen, wanting to help with measuring, mixing and chopping, and engaging in discussions about where our food comes from. It stuck with me how much enjoyment we both got from the sessions each week, and when the opportunity came along to share this experience with others, it filled me with excitement!
I am a qualified primary school teacher and have over 10 years experience working with young children of different ages, not just in schools, but as a previous Tae Kwon Do assistant instructor. I love learning new skills, and cooking is one that has stuck with me from a very young age, when I would help my parents to prepare, cook and of course taste foods (and still do, my favourite recipe being my mum's banana cake!).
Prior to becoming a teacher, my past work had given me the opportunity to travel and explore a wide range of cultures, landscapes and food. This passion is still very much with me today.
Another passion of mine is working with children and I am very excited to share the fun of cooking, whilst teaching them valuable skills that I know will stay with them. It makes me so happy seeing the delight of the children when they triumph in making their very own dishes to take home.
I look forward to cooking with your child and welcoming you to my classes, workshops and parties.
