Our resident European cuisine expert Lucinda Macdougall, lived in Paris for two and a half years. She worked for a French family, studied French and also worked in a restaurant in the 17th Arrondisement. 

Every evening she would prepare dinner for the family and dine with them, sharing their day and quickly improving her French fluency. Her days in Paris involved daily market shopping, selecting three cheeses for the night’s dinner and fabulous fabulous wine. Ughhh I’m so jealous!

Lucinda, a self taught cook and qualified chef brings a lifetime of professional cookery, world travel and a passion for teaching to her hands on cooking workshops.  Her food reflects a respect for fresh seasonal ingredients, simple preparation and most importantly that a meal should bring joy and satisfaction. 

Her extensive culinary and dietary knowledge and her humorous approach make a class with Lucinda a joy, she loves sharing all the tips and tricks of the professionals, but her greatest aim is to help you learn to trust your palate, cooking food without the restraints and dictates of a recipe.
