ONLINE COOKING CLASSES
Master your cooking skills with me, at home
Join me online from the comfort of your home kitchen to brush up your cooking skills!
Here’s what I offer;
If you’re lacking dinner inspiration or want to try new ingredients and recipes in a relaxed and fun environment the my online group classes are for you!
90 minute small group classes are held on Wednesday evenings. In this class we will produce a beautifully presented multi-aspect recipe for two people. Through the class you will learn tricky knife skills, ingredient specific skills, and pick up multiple tips and pointers from me beyond the written recipe.
My recipes are based on championing two to three seasonal ingredients, along with everyday ingredients. I show you how to turn the simplest of ingredients into an incredible meal, without the need for professional equipment or a spacious kitchen.
All available classes are listed below, and will be updated regularly. You can also buy a place on a class as a gift for a friend.
Cost : £22 per person
Class length : 90 minutes
Skill level: Intermediate to confident home cooks

Cooking Class Feedback
Ceri is @thebodycoach of lockdown cooking – keeping my spirits up and tummy full with her awesome zoom cookery classes. Tonight was SO much fun and I learned some new skillz.
Ceri’s class was fun, engaging, and a great way to spend an evening. I learnt new kitchen skills and a new recipe. I cannot wait to cook with Ceri again! She offers simple tricks and tips to upgrade your cooking, keeps it light and has a fantastic way of breaking everything down. To finish the class Ceri gave some beautiful suggestions for plating our food, ensuring that it looks as good as it tastes!
It has been a real bonus amidst all the restrictions to be able to join your classes online. A great opportunity to learn some new cooking skills and make some flavoursome food.
