Let's change the way you cook forever

The growth in confidence, enjoyment and skills of the people who've taken my online course has blown me (and them!) away. Now it is your turn to work with me and change the way you cook forever.

In every lesson I'll take you a step closer to becoming a calm, creative and confident cook. You'll learn a new cooking techniques and tricks as well as the organisation skills to make your time in the kitchen efficient and rewarding.

Just think how proud you'll feel for making time to invest in learning all that. And the impact it will have on you and those around you for years to come.

"I've really enjoyed the course. I've loved trying the new recipes and I really love the 'freestyle section' as it showed just how versatile the dishes can be. I also really enjoyed the organisation/mindset part of the course too. I never knew I needed an organised freezer, but it's fab! No more rifling through unidentified frozen objects and trying to work out what they are!! Thanks Gemma for reigniting my love of cooking."

“Thank you, thank you, I absolutely LOVED it! I can't tell you how much confidence and understanding it has given me. I love that there is no pressure, just gentle and fun encouragement.”


Hey, I'm Gem

I’ve spent 11 years teaching thousands of busy people to become confident, organised and creative home cooks.

I love teaching in person but wanted to open my lessons up to people who struggle with childcare, unpredictable hours or the cost and time of attending in-person lessons.

I've taken lots of online courses in the past and that experience helped me know what does and doesn't work when it comes to accessing and using online lessons - especially when life is busy. So I've designed this to be flexible and impactful so you can learn lots and start putting your new skills into action in the time you'd usually spend cooking.

I brought in a wonderful film maker to film the lessons and love how you can see every tiny detail, so you can confidently recreate everything in your own time.

I think most people join this for the cooking lessons but the organisation lessons have created so many 'aha' moments.

I really hope you can take the step and join so you can start to see the difference too.

“"I didn’t think I needed this course. I have 200 cookbooks and think I know a fair amount about food. However, I now realise that I was just good at following recipes. This course has taught me to really think about flavour, has made me so much more confident to adapt things to my taste and really has reignited my love of cooking (which had increasingly become a chore). This course is so much more than recipes, you are somehow able to magically lay the foundations for anyone to become an instinctive, confident cook without even knowing it.”

Is it time for you to...

Become a calm, creative, instinctive and confident cook who enjoys mealtimes.

Improve your knife skills and learn essential cooking techniques while making delicious meals - all from the comfort of your own home at a time and pace that suits you. 

Amaze yourself and the people you cook for when you learn the quick ways to balance flavour, texture and temperature to easily elevate every meal.

“I really appreciate your style of cooking and your style of teaching. It's so natural that it feels like you've got a mate round talking it through! I've learnt so many tips and tricks that I now do naturally"

You can book a 1-2-1 call with me at the start of your course to ask any questions and get my support. 

Watch the videos and read the workbooks on the members-only website at any time to suit you.

By joining, you'll get my support and guidance to make real progress in changing how you cook.

In every lesson I'll take you one step closer to becoming a calm, creative and confident cook. With every lesson you'll learn a new cooking technique as well as the organisation skills to make your time in the kitchen efficient and rewarding.

When you sign up, you'll get:

6x 30 minute cooking class videos. Each video gives you a step by step lesson from me in how to make a different meal, covering a range of recipes and techniques which will provide the foundations and flourishes for all your cooking.

Please drop me a message using the contact form if you need to split the cost into 2 or 3 payments.

In a word - nope.

I've taken a few courses that were all live tutorials and found it hard to fit in with the madness of a busy week. I fell behind and felt frustrated.

So I've purposefully designed this course to be one that you can do at times and pace that suit you. The lessons are pre-recorded so I can ensure amazing production values and ensure every point that I know you will need is covered.

I get it, I'm a busy working mum and I know that taking time for anything new has to really be worth it. This will be. This investment of time will save you weeks of time in the years to come. It is designed to be flexible to fit the time you have.

You won't be made to feel frustrated or overwhelmed because that's rubbish. 

You should expect to spend a total of 7 hours of learning time - watching the videos and reading the materials. This can be slotted in whenever suits you - either in a bigger chunk every couple of weeks or a few 30 minute bursts each week. 

Then it is up to you how much time you spend putting everything you learn into place. The course is designed so that your actions take place while you're doing cooking you'd be doing anyway so they shouldn't add more time to your day.

I'm afraid I can't offer refunds as the course is delivered upon receipt of your payment. If you are on the fence about if this will work for you, please drop me a message via my contact form and I can answer any questions.

You'll receive a welcome email on the day you sign up. That email contains links to all your lessons. 

As a small business I hope you can appreciate the impact if people share the work I create for my paying members. 

I'd love you to share the videos and recipes with people in your house but your membership will be cancelled if I see that your login is being used by multiple devices.

The recipes and videos are saved on a members only website. You are not able to share your login with anyone else.

I'll be teaching a wide range of techniques and videos using all sorts of ingredients, including meat and fish. Every recipe comes with suggestions for how to make it work for vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free and nut-free eaters. I'll also be on hand to answer questions about any other restrictions you're dealing with.

Some demonstrations will include meat/fish and if that bothers you, I can let you know which bits to fast forward through.

If you have a diet that excludes certain foods, this will be so useful as it will give you the confidence to know how to make every meal delicious and get the most out of any substitutions you use without feeling you're missing out.

Absolutely. I designed it for all our busy lives.

You will have access to the materials forever. 

The course materials (videos and PDFs) will be hosted in a members only website. When you sign up you will be asked to set up a username and password to access this. 

You'll receive a welcome email on the day you sign up. In it will be links to a welcome page with your lessons. 

You'll also get a link to book your 3x 1-2-1 calls.

You will also receive emails every week for 12 weeks to check in and keep you motivated.

Of course! My sign up process is in GB£ but you can choose your currency as part of the process.

I've had people who've taken my courses in the US, Dubai, Australia and throughout Europe. All the recipes come with US and UK measurements, ingredient names and temperatures.

This is for any level of cook - that may sound vague but my 11+ years of teaching mixed ability classes means that I demonstrate and explain what I'm sharing in a way that allows everyone to get value from it. Often the people who have been cooking the longest are the ones who don't realise they have not been doing things in the most efficient or instinctive way!

In every recipe I demonstrate, I start from scratch. There will be no pre-peeled onions or ready chopped things. 

If you are a really experienced cook, this will help you get out of a rut, expand your repertoire, freestyle with confidence and learn new ways to tackle things you've always done without questioning why. 

If you are a less confident cook you'll have the reassurance of my support and experience as your confidence grows, knowing that what you cook will work. 

Whatever your level, investing this money and time in yourself to learn in a fun and supportive environment will change the way you cook.

How lovely. I'd love that. 

Please drop me an email and I'll explain the options. 

If you buy through my site and click the gift box, your recipient will receive an automatic email giving them their login details. If you prefer to delay them getting any details, please contact me and I can set them up in a different way.

Previous course participants include a wide range of people from retired people living alone to families with small babies.

Families come in all shapes and sizes and with a huge range of dietary needs. Everything I'll teach you will work whether you're cooking for 1 or 10 people, I'll explain how to adjust things and will share practical tips to help you cook for whoever is at your table (or sofa).
