Hi! My name is Laura Carbery. I'm a trained chef & food product developer (including infant nutrition) with over 7 years experience working in the food industry. I'm a Mum of three and I'm extremely passionate about good, nutritious food.
I know that weaning onto solid foods can be stressful so I hope that with my personal and professional experience and knowledge that I can make parents relax and enjoy the experience.
The aims of my classes are to give parents independent advice specific to their families needs and to offer support to parents from weaning onwards. I will share delicious, easy and healthy recipes for all of the family to enjoy and help guide parents in raising happy, healthy eaters.
More about Me...
I've always been passionate about food and while growing up I was surrounded by a family of great cooks. I studied architecture for five years but in 2012 I decided to follow my heart and went to Ballymaloe Cookery School to train as a chef.
In the following years, I gained experience working as a pastry chef, teaching cooking, food styling and developing food products for retail and foodservice. I began a blog, The Seasonal Kitchen, to share with people my love for cooking, writing and photographing food. I documented foodie places I came across on my travels, cakes I made and decorated and lots of recipes I cooked at home.
I later completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Culinary Innovation & Food Product Development. I've received a number of awards for products I have developed including 2 Gold, 1 Silver and 2 Bronze in the Blas na hÉireann food awards.
His favourites are olives, houmous and bananas!
