Our story

Let food be thy medicine & medicine be thy food

KitchenJoy is a Cookery School with a difference; providing cookery courses that combine experiential learning of culinary skills with a medicinal foundation to promote health and wellbeing. Each session has a specific focus from learning to boost your immune system and energy levels, cooking with anti-inflammatory ingredients, good food moods, living with a gluten free diet, to cooking for healthy brain function. Using nutritional pillars to inspire the recipes, seasonal ingredients are locally sourced and specifically selected to promote wellbeing.

Our classes are open to individuals with all levels of knowledge, expertise and interests! You only have to have the passion and we will engage you in our nutritional values, whilst developing your culinary skills, so that you can begin cooking the best food for you at home. All our courses are based on the principle that fresh, natural ingredients are core to good health.

We can all relate to the feeling of low energy, lack of inspiration and feeling underwhelmed by eating the same meals over again. KitchenJoy can diversify your cooking repertoire, not only to excite your tastebuds but also to fuel your body with the nutrients it needs to thrive. It is KitchenJoy’s aspiration to share knowledge of nutritional skills and easy to follow recipes in a fun and interactive way so that you may incorporate these into your daily cooking and eating behaviours.

Each session combines an educational element, demonstration and hands on cooking. Alongside trying out dishes in the class, the group enjoy a sit down meal, along with samples to take home. You will feel inspired and confident to take these recipes home with you to experiment and enjoy a healthy lifestyle.

  • "Kitchen Joys Immune course was amazing, as someone who suffers from Crohns disease it was filled with very valuable learning's which I am excited to put into place. The instructions were clear and easy to understand (and as a non-cook that was very important to me) and the food was AMAZING - can't wait to try the recipes at home. Joy is very passionate and knowledgeable and well a complete 'joy' to be around. I can't wait to book my next course. "

  • "My giriflriend and I took the "boosting your immune system" class with another couple just after Xmas and had a great evening. We learnt a lot about the types of foods we should eat to keep healthy, and at the same time that taste great. Joy showed us that eating healthy isn't difficult, time-consuming or expensive and we've never looked back. Joy is a great teacher. She's extremely knowledgable and passionate about food but also makes the classes relaxed and fun. "
