In my fifteen years of cooking I’ve managed to work with some of the best chefs in our local community and far a field such as Gordon Ramsey. I also pride myself on creating Huddersfield’s first meal prep company which is now nationwide. I’ve also created Private Dining Club which is a private chef for hire for intimate meals and events which has led us to cook for the likes of international superstar Kalvin phillips and Tyler roberts and a few others on the way and were only just getting started.
There are many reasons why I do this for a living, one been that I love bringing joy and happiness to people through food. Everyone’s happy when they’ve eaten something with great flavours, some may even call me a feeder!
I am a mother of 2 and aspiring public speaker, journalist and presenter. I am also the founder of Real Table Talk. Real Table Talk was born because I believes we all have a story to tell, and we all need to share our story to encourage and inspire people around the globe. I felt my life was parked; stood still. I was working a 9-5 job going on nice holidays, driving a nice car, single and enjoying it, but at the time l wanted more not sure what that more was l started listening to motivation speakers, Mr Les Brown
I joined toastmaster international to practice on my public speaking skills. Joining this club l was able to travel to Chicago for the Toastmaster International Convention – l was one of the volunteer speakers. I met some very interesting people, it felt like l was meant to be here. I have joined and worked with Les Brown to practice public speaking. I have always wanted to go to university, l did not think it was possible, l left school with two qualification in Art and catering. When l was 30yrs young, l found out l am dyslexic, not thick, or stupid. I am a proud dyslexic who absorbs information in a different way, it might take a little longer, to work things out, l am unique. I am not hiding anymore l am a proud dyslexic.
