Mid Hants

My name is Jo Poupart and I am excited to be the new owner of Cook Stars Mid Hants.

I have been working with children in Schools for the last for 15 years. During my time teaching the
children I have also run cooking classes to share my passion for food.

The aim of the classes was to get Children involved with foods they may not have experienced
before and where these foods come from. Getting the Children cooking "hands on" helped teach
them new skills and techniques linked with cooking and healthy eating.

Prior to School life I was a pastry chef for 15 years which has given me a great foundation to run the school classes from.

In 2018 I realised that these two passions were what I wanted for my next career and the discovery of Cook Stars has now given me that opportunity.

I will love seeing the joy and self-satisfaction of the children when they produce their own meals and recipes to take home! Cooking is a skill all children should learn so our recipes of history are not lost in the fast paced world we live in today.

My family are so supportive and can't wait to give me a helping hand when I need a little assistance my new venture Cook Stars Mid Hants! In my spare time I love to keep fit. I regularly take part in an exercise class called "bounce" which is mini trampoline aerobics class. I have also taken part and completed a number of half marathons but am firmly of the opinion that my running days are more of a "5 mile jog" now.

I look forward to welcoming you to my classes!
