Newport to Ebbw Vale

Hi my name is Sara Butler and I own Cook stars Newport-Ebbw Vale and Monmouthshire where I teach children through fun cooking classes for the area covering postcodes in-between Newport, Torfaen, Ebbw Vale and Monmouthshire.

I love working with Cook Stars, 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 live in Cwmbran with my husband and Patterdale Terrier called Bailey who is my official mascot and wears his Cook Stars bandana with pride, you can often see me driving my Cook Stars red van around the area-give me a wave if you do!

I look forward to seeing you in a class soon!
