How many dishes are made?

You decide what you would like to make, and Anne Marie will create a bespoke cooking lesson specific to your needs.

Informal, informative and inspirational!

One Get Cooking! attendee described a lesson with Anne Marie as

‘the recipe book that talks back – in the best possible way!’

As you cook together during your private cooking lesson, Anne Marie talks you through the whole dish, passing on tips and techniques so you’re learning the entire time ­but without any pressure. If it doesn’t turn out quite how it should – Anne Marie will know how to save the day and the dish!

A Get Cooking! Course (even a single cooking lesson) will give you more confidence to experiment, have fun, and make a bit of a mess. Every time you swap one ingredient for another, you’re creating a recipe that’s 100% your own!

A little imagination goes a long way. Anne Marie will have you making delicious meals and memories!

“My lessons with Anne Marie have given me a store cupboard’ of super tasty recipes which are quick, simple, healthy and even cost-effective.”

It’s your choice what you learn to cook and what pace you go at. It takes into account any food allergies, personal likes or dislikes.
