I am a home economist, food and nutrition teacher and restaurateur. I’ve been involved in teaching people from ages 5 upwards to cook, and owned my own restaurant for 22 years. Over the years, I have done one to one tuition, taught exam students, catered for wedding functions, and done many food demonstrations all over the country to groups of 20 to 400 on many types of cuisine. I was one of the first people in the UK to use and demonstrate microwave oven use and produced a recipe book in the 1980's.
