Hi. I'm Steph and I am delighted to be launching Cook Stars Southwell and Mansfield from September 2022.

I've worked as a primary school teacher for almost 15 years and have had the privilege to teach some wonderful children. Sharing that 'lightbulb' moment when a child makes a connection or discovers something they are passionate about is a real honour. Igniting that spark in our young people is so important.

I've always loved to cook and play with flavours. Sharing good food and good company is my favourite pastime and I am now enjoying passing this passion on to my daughter. I often take inspiration from places I have visited, something I have inherited from my Dad who used to travel with work and bring back his new discoveries!

Whenever I have any spare time I can be found tinkering away with recipes in my kitchen - most recently testing out lots of the fantastic Cook Stars recipes. Cooking should be a fun and enjoyable experience and it is a love I want to pass on to as many people as possible.

I truly believe that people are never too young to learn their way around the kitchen. I have a clear memory of my daughter, at 10 months, sitting on the kitchen worktop helping me make scones. These are still one of her favourite things to make. Cooking together has allowed us the chance to develop a positive relationship with food, develop a perspective on what a balanced diet is and spend time forming memories.

Classes, parties and events will commence in September so please do get in touch for any further information.
