Hello, I am Laura and I love cooking, I always have. It’s part of who I am and it’s what I do. I was a chef before having children and moving out of London, becoming great friends with someone who shared the same interest in food as me. She is Japanese and we bonded over our love of cooking.
Then she left. Upped sticks with the husband & kids to move to Sydney, to be nearer her family. My fellow foodie pal had gone. I really missed my fellow food loving pal. Who else would be interested in hearing about what I had been up to in the kitchen?
howtocookgoodfood is a blog about why it is good to cook, my food memories, some favourite recipes and seasonal food ideas.
I would like it to be my personal relationship with those who read it. I would like it to be the friend in my life, on all things culinary. Essentially I would like it to be a part of who I am, but mainly, I would like it to encourage you to love cooking.
I am now a cookery tutor working for various organisations throughout Surrey as well as running pop-up bake clubs at home for both children and adults. If you would like to find out more about my baking classes please do get in touch!
I hope that this blog will be a way of reaching out to people to show them cooking is a rewarding and necessary life skill to have. I don’t want cooking to become a dying art, or just something you watch on tv but never actually do. I shall share with you some of the dishes, memories and useful tips that will hopefully encourage you to get using your kitchen more.
