I am a qualified Primary School teacher with over 10 years' experience of working in schools. I love working with children and I love to cook, so I am very excited to join the Cook Stars team and
combine my two passions.

From a very young age I was in the kitchen cooking with my Mum. I have very fond memories of us preparing for special celebrations and parties where she used to cook delicious meals and desserts from scratch.

During these last few years, I have been very fortunate to be able to spend time with my young
daughter and introduce her to the wonderful world of cooking! Even though she is only 4 years old, she is very capable in the kitchen. She enjoys rummaging through the cupboards for the equipment and ingredients, weighing, cracking the eggs and mixing everything together. Cooking is such an important life skill and covers so many areas of learning. It also encourages children to start making healthy choices and gain confidence in themselves and in what they can achieve.

I love to spend time with my husband, daughter and extended family. I enjoy keeping fit and going
for long walks in the countryside.

I am extremely excited to be cooking with your child and having lots of fun along the way. I can't wait to welcome you to one of my classes!

We have been doing zoom classes with Rochelle since Christmas. They are really fun and teach the kids about cooking independently.


We have been doing Zoom classes with Rochelle since mid January. My son absolutely loves his Saturday mornings, and his cooking lesson, his skills have grown so much in the last few weeks and his confidence with doing things himself.
Rochelle is so welcoming to everyone and the extra crafts are lovely and well thought out.
I wasn't sure how my son would do with zoom classes but Rochelle has kept him engaged every week! We love our Cook stars lessons!


Rochelle was great at cooking breakfast muffins with my 6 year old. she really enjoyed it and liked interacting with the other children on zoom. It was so much fun and she can't wait for next week. x


We have loved our term of cookery classes. We look forward to Saturday mornings and family baking. All the recipes have been child friendly to make and all taste delicious!!


My daughter and I are having the best time at Cook stars with Rochelle.
I can't believe how many skills my 2 year old has picked up, chopping, grating, measuring out to name a few.
She loves trying new foods which has been a delightful shock!
She now goes round our house sniffing and naming foods
We always enjoy our sessions and that is very much down to Rochelle's kind, fun & approachable nature.
Thank you so much!


My daughter has loved the zoom cooking classes. We have been doing them since January and Rochelle has been brilliant at engaging her in the class and encouraging her to be more independent with her cooking skills. The recipes are so varied and my daughter has enjoyed making and eating lots of different foods. Rochelle provides a lovely craft each week to complete whilst things are baking and Rochelle is great at getting all the children to engage with each other. The sessions are so well run and we really enjoy each class!


We had a best time at Cook stars thank you so much Rochelle. The biscuits went down a treat and you were fantastic. We can't wait for next week! Thanks for having us.


We had the BEST time this morning at Cook Stars , blueberry muffins went down a treat , and even snacks and crafts whilst they were in the oven , it's such a good class if anyone is looking for something to do with their little ones.


Thank you again for a great lesson, Harry really enjoys coming to his cooking classes, always happy to show his Nanna what he's made.
