My week with the Bocuse d’Or

My NVQ Level 3

My NVQ Level 3

For me, this is a very weird post to be writing. Writing this for me personally feels like the end of a year long journey. They say it’s the journey that counts, not the destination, and for me that feels true at this point in […]

Bye Felicia! (and by Felicia I mean uni)

Bye Felicia! (and by Felicia I mean uni)

Dating in the kitchen!

As a teen girl I’m supposed to be obsessed with boys, right? Well, since I enrolled on a Professional Cookery course 90% of that has gone out of the window. As a chef I’ve become insanely focused and career driven. When my friends are all […]

College Quiz!
