Welcome to the website of the Ordinary Cook. I am Kath and I hope this site inspires you to enjoy cooking.
I love to cook. I learned to cook from watching and helping my mum and I have developed my cooking knowledge by cooking for myself and my family on a daily basis.
I love cookbooks and I am often found with my head buried in a recipe book. I use these recipes to inspire me. I experiment with and adapt recipes.
We are lucky enough to live in a rural spot and we keep chickens and have a veg patch, so my recipes also reflect what is available to us from the garden.
I have two girls who have helped me cook since they were old enough to stand on a chair to reach the worktop.
I cook using a four-oven Aga and so will usually include instructions for cooking with an Aga in the method for each recipe.
I call myself the Ordinary Cook because that is what I am – an enthusiastic home cook.
In 2014 I set up Veg Patch Kitchen, a cookery school that teaches bread making courses from our bespoke kitchen next to our home in Ironbridge in the beautiful county of Shropshire. We would love you to join us for a relaxing day or evening, learning a new skill.
I would be happy to discuss opportunities to review food related items or to discuss your advertising needs. If you need a food writer get in touch. Take a look at my PR Queries and Disclosure page or contact me.
