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 set up this blog in 2009 to share my recipes with others and it’s been quite a journey. It led me to fall in love with bread and bread making, it has become a passion and an obsession.
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. I also teach the bread making courses at the Acton Scott Farm and Museum. You might find me at food festivals in the West Midlands sharing my bread making tips on the Wot’s Cooking Chef Demo stages.
