Meet Jess!

Hi my name is Jessica (but I'm more of a Jess!). I am a qualified and vastly experienced Food and Nutrition/Home Economics teacher. I grew up submerged in the food industry and I have a first class Honors Degree (Bachelor of Science) in 'Food, Nutrition and Consumer Sciences'. I also have a Post Grad Certificate of Education.  I am from Wales, U.K and ADORE Adelaide, which is now home for me and my young family!

If you want to know more about me and how Cook n Create came to be and how I may or may not have grown up on a REAL LIFE CHOCOLATE FACTORY.. CLICK HERE!

Cook n Create has been born from my love and passion for food, nutrition and cooking combined with my enthusiasm for teaching and empowering children and teenagers. Getting children back to basics, getting creative, having fun and laughing until our tummies hurt and our cheeks ache is what Cook n Create is all about!

I LOVE working with children and helping them ignite sparks of passion and watching their cognitive development progress and their skills being built and refined whilst having a great time!  I see this as a real privilege. All sessions have been designed to ensure that EVERY child can access the learning and can thrive with Cook n Create.

Working with children and teaching them to cook, to enjoy food and to have fun with food is my passion!

When kiddies cook ...they LEARN!

Now whilst at a basic level - of course this is obvious but we are talking about the layers of learning beyond the obvious! We are talking about the real magic!

Cook n Create is driven by HANDS ON LEARNING! If Jess can get hands in bowls - mixing, binding, squishing, squelching, mashing, rolling... then she absolutely will!

By being hands on... or hands IN - children learn to explore their senses and build their own opinions and preferences. They naturally learn to expand their palate (this is such a positive experience for those picky eaters CLICK HERE to read Jess' article on fussy eaters). With knowledge they are empowered to make their own healthy choices and take ownership and responsibility over their habits and choices - these are critical LIFELONG habits that we can't afford to get wrong.
