CEO & Principal

Fiona is a passionate food campaigner and cookery teacher, believing that the only way to get people to eat healthier food is to give them the skills and information they need to make good choices for themselves.

Fiona manages the team at KCS on a daily basis and coordinates outreach workshops in schools and community centres. She particularly enjoys training staff in schools and community centres to deliver cookery clubs.

Fiona is a published cookery writer and contributes regularly to printed publications. She has spoken about children's food and cookery on television and radio broadcasts and at numerous conferences. Please contact at  info@thekidscookeryschool.co.uk with all enquiries.
