Cookie Crumbles - About us | Our Team
Our dedicated team of trained chefs and nutritionists are energetic, fun, personal and highly organised and simply love working with kids.
Since an early age I always loved eating and through that love I discovered my love of cooking-which seemed the greatest gift as it not only made myself but many other people happy. Originally from Germany I was formally trained in Paris, working with some of the great chefs and patissiers, where I discovered the real heat of professional kitchens. Feeling restless I decided to move into food journalism, where I had an exiting career as a food editor for 10 years spanning over three countries and numerous titles. After the birth of my children I discovered that many of my children’s friends where amazed about the fact that we always cooked delicious food at home and that my kids where allowed to help and create their own dishes. Cookie Crumbles came along as a business opportunity and the rest is history...
For as long as I can remember I’ve always loved
cooking, so along with this and a keen interest in all areas of food
I embarked on a degree in Nutrition. It was during a volunteer program,
teaching cookery lessons to mentally disabled children, that I found
my niche. This became my driving force to specialise in paediatric
nutrition. The spirit and verve of children when they are cooking is
something truly magical and working with Cookie Crumbles is certainly
a unique experience every day! I am passionate about children’s
health and nutrition, so to be able to encourage this in such a fun,
positive environment is a great pleasure for me.
My love for cooking stems from my mother. My career
commenced in teaching children for 8 enjoyable years, I then decided
to have a change and
embarked on a freelance catering career for 5 years in Dublin. After
my move from Ireland to London I trained in Leith's School of food
and wine for 9 months. I met Carola soon afterwards and her exciting
Cookie Crumbles where I discovered I could combine my love of teaching
children and cooking.
We’re always looking for child friendly, outgoing and fun people with a passion for food to join our team. You need to be professional, unflappable, have proven reliability and driving your own car is essential. You need to be interested in after-school and weekend work. Cookie Crumbles also offers franchise opportunities. Call Carola on 020 8876 9912 for more information or enquire here.
