My love of food and hosting was sparked during my first job working at a cafe aged 14. From that point onwards I worked part time in cafes, right throughout my university years to support myself through education. After university I did a postgraduate diploma in journalism, to pursue my other life passion- writing, a passion I developed as soon as I could read and write, and assert that when I grew up I wanted to become an author, and tell people’s stories!
After having my first two children I decided to make a career change and explore my love of food, cooking and running events. I retrained as a professional chef at Leith’s school of food and wine and founded my own café. Since then I have been running supper clubs, private catering and working with brands to bring their stories to life through bespoke dining experiences. In addition to this I offer food styling, content creation and recipe development to brands and individuals for use across digital platforms. So Stories, is in sorts, a coming together of my two passions- food and storytelling.
Every event, meal, gathering we curate has an element of storytelling running through it. I’m endlessly curious by nature and love to hear, share and tell people’s stories. Through the medium of food we devise ways to weave in storytelling elements (be it about the produce, the cooking style, the grower, the brand) as well as find unique and engaging ways to encourage our guests to share their stories with each other, across the table.
