Hi! I’m Nena – a qualified Natural Chef (College of Naturopathic Medicine (CNM)), cookery and fermentation teacher, recipe developer, food stylist and writer. While there may be many strings to my apron bow, every element of my work aims to bring joy and simplicity back into healthy eating. Before launching my own nutrition-focussed cookery business in 2017, I completed a PhD in public health and worked as a public sector consultant with a focus on healthcare. For nearly two decades my work focussed on chronic disease and the impact of poor health. It was through this work that I became passionate about how nutrition can improve and prevent ill health. My bespoke nutrition and cookery courses are designed to educate adults and children on why we need real, whole foods in our diet and how good gut health is the answer to many common health problems. As a mother of two, I also understand the importance of creating simple, wholesome recipes that the whole family will love and enjoy, so that you can make lasting lifestyle changes together.
Come cook with me live and online, from my kitchen to yours. Classes are packed with easy-to-follow nutritional information and practical cookery skills. Whether you’re stuck in due to the current situation or just fancy learning some new cookery skills from the comfort of your own home, online classes are a great way to connect, find inspiration in the kitchen. So come learn how to eat better, cook better and feel healthier. CLASSES INCLUDE: FERMENTED VEG MASTERCLASS (Group) All recipes are vegan and will include seasonal produce where possible.
