Home Economics for the 21st Century

Previously known as Pattacakes Cookery School

The Kitchen Front Community Interest Company is an innovative food education and cookery company. We believe that everyone should be able to produce delicious food and we provide that bit of instruction that makes all the difference and helps you achieve your cooking confidence.

We are Jane Todd and Sarah Cripps. We are both graduate Home Economists with many years' experience in the food industry, teaching and health education. The essence of our company is based on the original concept of Home Economics; Finding the healthiest way to feed the population with the minimum of waste, least cost and lack of fuss but still making it all taste delicious. We have brought that approach up to date for the 21st Century with our menu of activities.

We teach both adults and children in schools and community settings, through workshops, cookery demonstrations and cooking parties, enabling people to cook with confidence.  We have been making cooking fun for children for over 15 years though Pattacakes Cookery; we now bring this approach to all members of the community regardless of age, experience or ability.

We are members of the Real Bread Campaign
