About

Meet Anne Marie

Anne Marie

I believe that anyone can cook with a little help and my aim is to make cooking a pleasure, not a chore.

Cooking doesn’t have to be complicated to taste good. It’s all about knowing what tastes good together. Once you’ve mastered basic techniques and can put a few staple dishes together, you can mix and match, add ingredients, turn soups into suppers and create whole new meals from just a few simple skills.

I’ve always been a sustainable cook and my courses are based around making the most of every ingredient.

My aim is to get you cooking with confidence and sharing great tasting food with others.

Our Get Cooking! Experience Gift Vouchers make a great present for all ages from 7 to 70, for birthdays, Christmas or just because!  Vouchers are very popular with young adults about to leave home (and their parents!)

Whether you’re a complete beginner, want to brush up on basics, pick up new skills, or try out new dishes, Anne Marie can help you become a better cook.

Anne Marie is so welcoming, friendly, patient and informative. Relaxed class (online due to COVID restrictions) and easy to follow whatever your cooking ability. I made stollen and biscotti biscuits in my pre-Christmas session. Loved it and great tasting results. Thank you!

We really enjoyed cooking along with Anne-Marie on Zoom this evening. My daughter and I both learned something. Anne-Marie is an excellent teacher using this challenging Zoom technology. The visuals were great, and she has a really relaxed and natural delivery style. Everyone in the class seemed to work very well together, and to be very pleased with their final results. Whilst my daughter and I do cook together, it made a nice change to be following someone else rather than thinking ahead myself, and this new recipe was definitely a winner.

Thanks, Anne Marie, for such an enjoyable time making pizza and cheesecake! You were so welcoming from the start, relaxed and easy-going, and very informative about different techniques without being too technical. I'd share photos, but I am afraid I ate the (yummy) evidence!

Anne Marie is AMAZING!! I have attended both her group sessions (making Sushi) and also had a private lessons with her. The food tasted absolutely amazing, she was very clear in explaining what we needed to do with what items and we had loads of fun! Would highly recommend!

Awesome online group cooking lesson! We made a chicken roast with all the trimmings (roast veggies, Yorkshire pudding, gravy ...) from start to finish and the result was great for my first time! Well paced class, very nice group of very different ages, friendly chat and of course best of all great knowledge and patience from Anne Marie! I highly recommend.

I brought a surprise sushi lesson for my husband for his birthday with Anne Marie at Get Cooking. It was excellent!! I really wanted to learn how to also make his favourite dessert... pumpkin spiced rice pudding, Anne Marie moved around our lesson so we could do both!! The rice pudding was heaven, and the sushi is so great... even better, is that she made it feel like we could do this often. So we are having sushi for lunch whenever we want now.
