I'm really excited to be bringing Cook Stars to Newport - Ebbw Vale!
They say life begins at 40, I think mine is beginning at 50! Hi my name is Sara Butler and I own Cook stars Newport-Ebbw Vale where I teach children through fun cooking classes for the area covering postcodes in-between Newport, Torfaen and Ebbw Vale.
I work in travel retail in a learning and development role and have enjoyed developing people for the past 18 years
I am really excited about starting with Cook stars in June, my passion is all things food, cooking with it, baking for my colleagues and trying out new recipes on my husband. We married in September 2018 and spent part of our honeymoon in a bakery baking a birthday cake!
My love of the kitchen comes from my Mum and Grandma, one of my earliest memories is standing on a wooden stool licking out a ceramic bowl full of delicious cake mix! Mum passed her love of cooking and baking, there is not a time when her kitchen wasn't full of delicious smells.
My other passion in life is travelling, I love visiting local restaurants and learning about the local delicacies. My very favourite foodie place (so far) is Florence in Italy, although the Maltese bread from a tiny bakery in Rabbat, Malta was pretty special as well.
I am looking forward to meeting and sharing my passion with children and seeing them grow in confidence as they learn new skills. I can't wait to start this new chapter of my life. Look forward to meeting at cookery class soon!
