I am passionate about teaching cooking and have presented cooking classes for over 30 years. I was a foundation teacher/presenter in1988 at the Sydney Seafood School when it was first established with a 12 - year period of regular seafood classes being taught. 

I have been a regular presenter since 2013 and at The Essential Ingredient Sydney NSW and North Sydney Community Centre.


Between 2017- 2018 I was contracted to established The Cooks Cooking School in Bowral. This was a dream come true and many happy and delicious days were had. Inspirational home cooking and hands on approach was the goal.

What people say about my cooking classes - 

Loved everything food was amazing, delicious, unusual, not overly complicated. Presented so well by Anna - a great experience. Annie 

Anna's wealth of knowledge and humour as well as small class size. Losing my fear of cooking seafood has begun. Sally D
