Hi, my name's Julia.
I'm the proud owner/operator of Cook Stars Bedford & I live in a small rural village together with husband Rob, cat Mimi and our slightly crazy (but fabulously lovely) twins - Josh and Sophia.
I've always enjoyed cooking (and eating) from a very young age. So much so that I actually trained as a Chef when I first I left school. The skills I gained from that were a huge benefit to me in the early days of my subsequent hotel career - and of course nowadays they're proving themselves pretty useful too!
I joined the Cook Stars family in April 2017, quite simply because I absolutely loved what Cathy and the team were doing and I very much wanted to be a part of their success. The business quickly grew from strength to strength and in 2019 we decided we were ready to take it one step further. So, in September 2019 we took the plunge and proudly opened the doors of the Old School Kitchen - a gorgeous little kitchen area based within the John Bunyan Sports and Fitness Centre in Bedford. We are now able to run all our classes, workshops, parties and events from one place, and it really has proven itself to have been the best decision we ever made.
We LOVE what we do here at Cook Stars - there's nothing else quite like it - and we thrive on providing a learning environment which is sociable, energetic and above all else lots of fun. If you've been thinking of giving us a try, then absolutely please do. We love nothing more than to welcome new faces, and we have no doubt whatsoever that you'll have a totally amazing time.
Can't wait to meet you!
