Hull East and Holderness

Hi I'm Sarah Pittaway and I have the pleasure of running children's cooking classes at Cook Stars at 'Cook Stars Hull East and Holderness'. I look forward to seeing you at one of our fantastic Cook Stars classes, cooking parties or cookery workshops.

I have 2 beautiful children Noah 6 and Phoebe 2 who love to help mummy in the kitchen. My wonderful husband Andy shares my passion for cooking and enjoying good food. Until recently he was a sweet chef in a Michelin star restaurant, I can still sometimes persuade him to create the odd sweet treat!

I come from a family of foodies and food lovers. My mum Marion, introduced me to cooking from a very early age when I would often "help her" in the kitchen. She even used to come into my junior school to volunteer to teach baking and ended up doing this for 25 years!! My brother was also inspired and now owns his own Michelin star restaurant!

My degree is in Psychology and Sociology but I have always had an interest in learning about food, cooking and sharing my knowledge and skills. I worked in the hospitality industry as a waitress for many years from part time while going through my education to full time as restaurant supervisor and back to being a waitress while starting out in my teaching career.
After graduating I moved to Romania for a short time doing charity work in Gypsy villages particularly working with the children within the communities and helping to feed the villagers by making soup twice a week with one of the heads of the village and distributing it to villagers in need. 

I have worked in a local secondary school for 15 years first as a teaching assistant working in a variety of subjects with students with a variety of needs. I completed my training as a Food teacher in 2005, I have taught a variety of food courses in KS3 and KS4. I was head of the D&T faculty and also worked alongside some local primary schools on a variety of projects.
On my return to work after having Phoebe I realised that I needed to look at different avenues to regain my work life balance. Cook stars is the perfect opportunity for me to do this. I can do what I truly love which is teaching Kids to cook and encouraging children to enjoy cooking and learning about nutrition.

I look forward to sharing my cook stars classes and parties with you.
