2020 DATES TO BE CONFIRMED
THE LAMBING SHED, KNUTSFORD
Gemma started teaching people to cook when she was living in Silicon Valley. Now she travels between California and Cheshire teaching busy families how to get delicious food on the table without drama. Her award-winning cooking classes and meal plan service help thousands of people cook from scratch, enjoy the process, try new things, grow in confidence and love the results, no matter how busy life gets.
Everything Gemma does comes from the reality of cooking in a home kitchen with children underfoot (she is mum to two small boys) and the rest of life being juggled around it. Over the years of teaching people to cook, she has developed a range of recipes and tricks that work for hectic mid-week dinners as well as for more relaxed weekend eating with friends.
The recipes Gemma shares look and taste amazing, but they rarely take more than 30 minutes of hands-on work. Because she knows that’s about as long as many of us can manage. She’s a big believer in the power of meal planning and also the importance of one family, one meal – not only as a way of cutting stress but also as a way of saving money and avoiding food waste. Because of this, she created a family meal planning service which provides monthly meal plans, shopping lists and recipes to hundreds of families throughout the world.
Gemma won Food Blogger of the Year in 2018, talks about food on Vanessa Feltz’s BBC breakfast show and writes for magazines and newspapers. She is writing her first cookbook.

I would certainly say Pub in the Park is up there with one of best things I have ever done, the atmosphere and buzz over those 3 days was just electric and I felt so lucky to be a part of it all. All in all, we served around 4000 dishes over the 3 days, the most popular being the Mackerel Taco which sold out on each session, I couldn’t have asked for a better crowd though as they were all willing to try the other dishes we had to offer. One of my favourite moments had to be that I got to celebrate my birthday which was on the Sunday In such an incredible way, meeting a huge amount of kind and wonderful people as well as watching The Milk who are one of my favourite bands.
Last year’s Pub in the Park festivals were so much fun, I can’t wait to bring excellence in food, world class chefs, ace music and an awesome vibe to eight locations across the UK this year.
