From a young girl I had my heart set on cooking professionally, at 16 I started training at
Catering College and worked my way through the ranks, until in 2004 I owned my own
Public House and Restaurant.
I then met my husband Mark who is a pig farmer and decided to train through Hull
University to become a Teacher.
I progressed from University to teaching in a Teacher in Young Offenders Prison, and
Pupil Referral Units in Yorkshire as a Food Teacher.
In 2010 we relocated our family to Lincolnshire and never looked back. I continued
teaching in Secondary Schools.
We now own and rent 2 farms in the heart of Lincolnshire.
We bought ‘Hill Farm’ in Snelland in 2011 which dates back to 1844, and in need of a lot of
renovation as it was very dated. My dream was to convert the stables on Hill Farm into an
Independent Cookery School and this dream is now coming true.
The School was due to open on the 10th February 2021, but due to the current situation
we are unable to open.
There are courses for all abilities, starting from 8 years old, which you can now book on
We have also made provisions for children who are home educated offering 3 hour
courses 2 days a month.
Please follow us on Facebook and Instagram “Lincolnshire Cookery School’ for updates on
our progress and when we plan to open.
Why should children attend;
• Vital life skills.
• Where our food comes from.
• What goes into the food we eat.
• Socialising with others their age groups with the same interests.
