My cooking experience started at home, where I do most of the cooking for my family and enjoy hosting dinner parties. During my gap year I completed a four-week cookery course at The Food of Course Cookery School, then worked as a chalet host for five months in Les Menuires.
Last summer I worked for a week in the Drôme region in France, catering for four families on their summer holiday, which was great fun. In Durham I occasionally volunteer at FoodCycle, catering for the homeless and hungry with leftover food supplies from local supermarkets. I also enjoy incorporating cooking into my travels and have completed short cookery courses in both Bali and Peru.
