Thermomix

I have always believed that the selection and use of quality culinary equipment can greatly simplify a chef’s work in the kitchen. In addition to good pans and knives I personally use the Thermomix: a multi-purpose kitchen appliance combining a heating element, motor for fast or slow blending and stirring, and a weighing scale. As a Thermomix advisor I would be very happy to answer any questions you might have if you are interested in learning more. Click the link here to send me an email

Hi Kate, What a fantastic experience yesterday's "adventure" was. An opportunity to meet new people, in such a relaxed environment. Your explanation of each and every recipe was detailed, very humourous and delivered in such a wonderful location. Each and every dish you provided was clearly enjoyed by all attendees, which was evidenced by how quiet everything was at the time of eating. Clive is an absolute legend and many thanks to him for a great welcome and washing so many dishes, I am so glad my wife did not witness this activity. I now need to explain to her who "helga" is and why she was so clever and such a help in the preparation of dishes. A fantastic day and one I would love to attend again.

It was lovely to meet you. I had a brilliant day. A very nice group of people. I'm planning to cook most of the menu you cooked on Saturday in a couple of weeks time. I won't try to cook everything in the one day though. Thanks for everything.

Hi Kate , Oh my goodness we are just all coming down to earth ! What an amazing day ! We all absolutely loved it , and can’t wait for the next one ... .. honestly I can see us doing this on a regular basis ! I’m even considering moving to Penmaen ! ( one can dream !) ....... I can’t wait to write a review and also share our experience on my social media .. I have over 4K followers on Instagram , all foodies , mostly from Swansea / Cardiff and West . The whole day was such a wonderful escape from the current climate . Your home is just breathtaking . Your wonderful hospitality and the amazing ‘gift’ you are , really did lift us all ! So funny that the boys want to join us too for the next one ! I thought our group was a lovely mix with the jewel in the crown being you and not forgetting the wonderful Clive ! He was a cross between a Phillips Whirlpool and an Alexa ! If they start selling Clives on Amazon , there’s 4 orders already in waiting ! We are all in awe of the perfect man ! What a great team you are .. Your warmth , passion for food and humour really did make the day so special ! I even wanted to buy the book again ! Haha

Thank you so much Kate for welcoming me into your beautiful home for your INCREDIBLE cookery course. The food and company was first class. Can't wait to get cooking!

Kate I had the absolute best time. Thank you so much. I look forward to attending another class very soon but in the meantime I will have fun buying amazing new cooking equipment in Peppercorn to make the gorgeous recipes from your book. Thank you.
Kathryn, Saturday, 4 September 2021

Thank you Kate - what a lovely day. You are so talented - gorgeous food. Hope you are now sitting down with a nice glass of fizz in front of you.
Jen, Friday, 13 March 2020

Kate thank you for such a lovely day. Hopefully you have now had your bath and glass of bubbly....
Ann, Friday, 13 March 2020

Kate, what a fabulous day. you were amazing, especially in front of that film crew...I'm exhausted, so you must be totally pooped. And, well what a gem Clive is, it's a shame we can't clone him. Every lady needs a Clive. I really hope you are now sipping champagne and having you or feet massaged, you certainly deserve it. Big thank you again.
