Love Cookery Classes
Experience Days, Cookery Classes, Birthday Parties, Lessons & Cookery Workshops.
The Cookery Courses take place in the beautiful setting of Lodge Farm in Bawburgh (10 mins from Norwich City Centre) in it’s modern Kitchen, the courses are taught by me Zena Leech-Calton, professional chef, cookery tutor, food writer & blogger with 30 years experience in catering. I trained at Norwich City College then again at Westminster as a pastry chef whilst working as a chef in London for over 10 years – I have now been teaching cookery for over 15 years. I specialise in Asian cuisine but have over 15 themes to choose from that I feel passionate about, I love teaching, I love cooking and I love eating!
