Fed up with the daily ‘what’s for dinner’ stress? Bored with the same old meals? No time for fancy recipes? Tired of traipsing around the supermarket? Hate meal planning?

Time to breathe a sigh of relief...

In this 90 min workshop I'll show you how to make no-stress tasty and nourishing meals from simple ingredients you can keep in your cupboards. No need for recipes!

Learn my super simple 3-step method for creating quick, easy and flavourful weekday meals. Decipher the pattern behind every recipe and free yourself from  their prescriptive rule. Master the art of seasoning and layering of flavours for delicious results every time.

For 'stuck in a rut' home cooks who want to feel good about cooking again.

Guess what...

More recipes are not solving the problem of feeling stuck and uninspired in the kitchen. It’s not about the recipes.

Instead, I will show you how to tap into your very own intuitive sense for nourishment and help you change the way you think about cooking. 

Enter the 'patterns not recipes' method:
a fool proof system to no-stress everyday meals (no recipes required)

My 3-step method breaks down the cooking process into an easy-to-follow structure, based on the timeless principles of flavour. When you follow structured patterns instead of recipes, everything you do in the kitchen becomes easily adaptable to match your preferences, your budget, your fridge contents and your time, day after day.  Once you recognise the simple, repeatable steps that are the building blocks of almost any recipe, cooking becomes effortless, creative, and even fun again!

Frequently Asked Questions

I’m Katerina, a Greek girl now living in a Welsh valley in the UK. I’m a home cook, just like you. I am passionate about real, simple, tasty food everyone can make at home without the need to rely on recipes. I believe that all humans have an innate instinct for cooking and I’m here to help you unleash that inner chef and rediscover the ‘can do’ mindset of curiosity and fun that lies at the heart of all effortless cooking.

The workshop is for stuck and stressed home cooks who've had enough of the never ending ‘what’s for dinner’ rigmarole, and want to rediscover a sense of calm and ease in the kitchen.

Most of us don’t! The framework I teach is based around simple meals that can be prepared with minimal fuss and practically zero planning, saving you both time and headspace.

Yes! Everything you will learn in this course is based around patterns and principles giving you the understanding you need to easily adapt any recipe and substitute ingredients according to your (and their) likes and needs.

Absolutely. Building your cooking skills on principles rather than recipes early on is the best grounding you can get to blossom into the relaxed and confident cook you want to be.

I'm pretty sure you will. In my experience many confident cooks are still relying on recipes (those they know well, and those they try new) and very much enjoy finding the freedom to go beyond after taking my course.

No, if you are looking for recipes this is not the right place. This course is based around patterns and principles, so that you no longer depend on following recipes.
If you have a lot of cook books already, you’ll learn to use them as a source of inspiration as you hone your intuition in the kitchen.
