Cooking, kids and crafts - I have a job which combines three of my favourite things! My background is in learning, development and teaching, so Cook Stars is my perfect blend!

For me, cooking is fun, creative and sociable and I love the way that food brings people together. I'm passionate about children having a healthy, balanced and fun 'friendship' with food and developing cooking skills which can last a life time.

A favourite part of my job is seeing the seemingly little things being the big things - a child enjoying a food they thought they'd hate and then having the confidence to try more foods or getting a huge sense of achievement from chopping a carrot when they thought it would be too difficult. I love the ear to ear grins when children see the meal they made come out of the oven!

I also enjoy cooking with children and their families in a variety of different ways, from weekly classes, cooking in schools, holiday workshops and parties to working with home educated children, community groups, charities, nurseries and one to one lessons.

When I'm not in the kitchen I'm usually having fun with my daughters and on the odd occasion when I get to put my feet up, I love it when my husband cooks for a change!

My daughter has just started Thursday after school class and is loving it.

My daughter goes to the Thursday after school class and she loves cooking new recipes every week. Mhairi is very friendly she makes you and your child/children feel comfortable.

Tara

My 9yr old daughter has been attending the Cook Stars classes since they started in the summer term, and she also went to the Easter workshop & to one of the summer workshops. She absolutely loves going & is very keen to continue for the long term. The classes are fun & engaging, she loves the cooking & is always so proud of her achievements. She enjoys doing the arts & crafts each week too & she has also made some new friends there. She's very happy & confident to be left every week with the teacher, Mhairi, who is a lovely, kind & very approachable lady who gives my daughter plenty of encouragement with the space to cook independently where she can but will also direct her as necessary. My daughter's cooking skills have definitely improved during her time at Cook Stars! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this class if your little one is interested in cooking!
