The Kids' Cookery School at Food Festivals across the UK

Our CEO and founder, Fiona Hamilton-Fairley is awarded an MBE! 

Fiona founded KCS in 1995, when she began to teach children in her own home when she realised that her own children would not learn how to prepare and cook good fresh food from scratch at primary school.  Fiona is a passionate, chef, cookery teacher and food campaigner.  She believes that every individual needs to be able to prepare and cook fresh food for themselves in order to eat well and live a happy and healthy lifestyle.  Fiona lives by the motto ‘you are what you eat and drink’.


On the 7 June 2019, Fiona was awarded an MBE on the Queens’ Birthday Honours List, for Services to children with Special Needs and disabilities.
