About Me

How did I get here

A Home Economist and Food Demonstrator

Who am I?

Teresa enjoys developing and demonstrating recipes that people can easily cook in their own homes. A trademark of both her cookery demonstrations and her food writing is the time-saving hints and tips she offers to help busy people make delicious, healthy meals with minimum effort. Teresa also works with local government and Principia NHS to promote healthy eating and encourage cookery skills in children. Please contact Teresa to find out more or to discuss a new project.

My career so far

What have I done?

Teresa has been a professional home Economist for over 30 years. Her career began at East Midlands Gas and then for Philips Major Appliances (now Whirlpool) where she worked with multi-function and microwave ovens. Teresa ran a national cookery club, developed recipes, tested appliances and trained sales staff. After leaving Philips to have two children, she taught part-time in further education, continued with freelance writing, ran food safety and diet related courses. She eventually became a Food Advisor for Sainsbury's and a Home Economist for Denby Potteries Visitor Centre, where she began organising cookery demonstrations and events. This led to Teresa setting up her own business to run cookery demonstrations from her home, at food festivals and she is now also involved with food styling, photography and videography . Teresa combines sound and varied knowledge of her profession with the reasoned, practical approach of someone who has enjoyed many years of cooking both professionally and as a working mum.

Cookery Demonstrations with Lunch

A day of fun and relaxation

Teresa's Cookery Demonstrations with Lunch offer a day of fun and relaxation and the chance to learn simple recipe ideas, a few technical skills and lots of handy hints and tips. The days allow you to watch a themed cookery demonstration and then taste the results.

Teresa holds the demonstrations in the informal atmosphere of her spacious family kitchen. You'll be welcomed with tea, coffee and biscuits at around 11am, followed by a one and a half hour cookery demonstration. Afterwards, you'll enjoy either a delicious three course lunch or a buffet and refreshments. The day normally ends around 3pm.

A Typical Demonstration

The demonstration days are competitively priced and tend to fill up very quickly, so please book on your chosen day as soon as possible. Additional dates are available for corporate and group bookings of 8 or more – please contact Teresa for more details.
