Together we're cooking


What an amazing day! I never knew I had it in me to cook all those amazing – and so simple! – dishes but Dawn made it happen. What’s brilliant about Dawn is that she doesn’t patronise and she doesn’t assume anything – and that’s a clever and delicate balance to maintain with us non-clever cooks. I would recommend Dawn to anyone who has a great big beautiful cast iron beast in their kitchen and would dearly love to learn to be able to use it better – while having fun at the same time.

I just wanted to say thank you so much for today.  The girls are so proud of everything they made and are already discussing what to have a go at next!! They really enjoyed themselves and were fast asleep by 9.05pm…….after GBBO of course!

Mentoring & Coaching

To achieve any goal, yet a career one requires the mentorship of someone who will ask the poignant questions to encourage one to think and learn.

Over the past 14 years, Dawn Roads has been such a mentor to me, her 3 key messages being:

  1. There are 2 sides to every story
  2. If it does not concern you, let it go
  3. Make today a good day, you deserve it.

Dawn is a highly motivated individual who took great care in assisting me with establishing my AGA approved cookery school. She is a great listener, talented home economist and trainer.
