About Me

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.

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.
