Welcome to the website of the Ordinary Cook. 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 various locations throughout 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 look at my PR Queries and Disclosure page or contact me.
