Let me introduce myself.

My name is Tamara and I am a passionate foodie. I enjoy cooking, entertaining, dining in, dining out, finding wines to match yummy food and meeting new people.

So therefore I, with the help of my very patient husband, have set out to create my dream job -

The little cooking school.

Here I get to blend my 20+ years of experience in commercial cookery, hospitality, tourism and training, with meeting people, sharing ideas, recipes and techniques, using the fabulous produce that we have available in this stunning region, and a long lunch with some superb local wine too. Come join us cook up a feast. Book online to reserve your spot.

See you in the kitchen
