It aims to provide fun, practical cooking skills, enabling participants to create a wide range of easy-to-prepare dishes for themselves, friends and family.

This course is 12 weeks long – around an hour between 5-6 pm on Tuesdays live on Zoom.



The Zoom link and full recipes will be sent out beforehand so you can gather your ingredients for each class.

Weighing and chopping will be done during the class, as this is part of the learning.  (you may chop and weigh ingredients beforehand if you prefer to watch more and take notes).

Cameras can be switched on or off, so interaction is entirely up to the individual.

Cameras switched on are preferable to encourage attendees to ask questions communicate with others and enjoy the cook-along!  It also helps Anne Marie stop and wait for people before taking the next step.

The Zoom is not recorded.

Why do Zoom cooking classes work well?

Learning to cook in your environment and equipment makes dishes more likely to be recreated.

You can interact as little or as much as you like.  So perfect for those who are anxious about cooking with others.

Cooking lessons are live, and questions relevant to your dietary requirements and kitchen can be asked throughout the session.

At the end of the cooking lesson, you can pridefully share what you have made with others in your household.


Basic cooking course dates starting September 2024 Tuesday’s 5-6 pm (Maximum 15 households).

Quote from parents/adults taking part in the cooking course on Zoom:

Our 14-year-old started cooking with Anne Marie for his DofE Bronze and hasn’t stopped!  He loves it; we love the food he cooks, and he’s super proud of himself for cooking a delicious meal every week.  Fabulous recipes, great tuition and a fun, educational class.  Thank you!  Sarah Gray, Leamington Spa


I can’t believe how much I have learned while watching my child learn to cook over the last 5 weeks! Mealtimes have become a family affair and we look forward to cooking. You make it so simple but the results are so tasty. I’m so pleased to have discovered this course!


Superb, Anne-Marie’s passion for cooking is infectious, every session was fun and informative. The cost of the course is excellent value for money and I’ve been recommending Anne Marie to all my friends and family.


Really great course, my son loved doing this as part of his Duke of  Edinburgh, and made some fantastic food!


Anne Marie hosts fantastic cooking lessons, teaching important life skills and coming up with some delicious creations. My daughter has really enjoyed her cookery course – highly recommended!
