Róisín's lessons were differentiated according to the children's age and she had a warmth and kindness which the children instantly connected with. Róisín went above and beyond .... I would highly recommend Róisín if you are looking for engaging, fun and creative baking activities in school (or through remote learning!)

We have just finished an eight week course with Mess Chef. This is often the highlight of the term for students and staff alike. Roisin allows the children the time to explore food, flavours and smells through all their senses. This is so important for all our students with autism. The children also learn key cooking and food preparation skills in a relaxed and fun manner. Mess Chef has helped the children tolerate, experience and develop new skills around food.

Absolutely fantastic class. My 2.5 year old little boy had an ball today. Creative, original, fun and educational.

We had an absolutely amazing time at our playgroup! All of the children loved creating their own cheesecakes and playing with the sensory activities.
