The right recipe can really help to show how an appliance can be used to to best effect.
Beko were the first manufacturer to introduce an on screen recipe book built into the panel facia of the oven.
To give their customers the very best experience from this innovative feature, I helped Beko to select, refine and test suitable UK recipes
Leisure range cookers asked me to develop a range of recipes that showed the versatility and capacity size of their range cookers.
To meet this need, I came up with the 2,4,6,8 recipe idea which is illustrated on their new website. Check it out here.
In May 2015 KitchenAid launched a high powered blender with new technology. The company wanted to support their sales demonstration team showcase the benefits of the blender’s capabilities for the nationwide UK launch.
KitchenAid commission me to help, and in response I developed a range of new healthy and easy to use recipes. See them here.
Product Testing and Evaluation
Prior to launch it’s vital that products are effectively tested and instructions are developed to be clear and easy to read.
I test, evaluate and write test reports on a wide range of products under lab conditions if necessary and can perform testing to British and IEC standards.
Training, Demonstrations and Launches
Demonstrations are a great way to communicate the benefits of new products. I work closely with equipment and appliance manufacturers to deliver technical information to staff and customers in an engaging and understandable way.
I helped TV Chef Shelina Permalloo by prepping and stylising food for the Hotpoint SDA launch.
A well designed kitchen deserves to be shown off at its best.
I demonstrate and train staff in beautiful kitchen showrooms and studios across the UK both directly for kitchen companies, and for premium appliance companies such as KitchenAid, Gaggenau, and Luce by Hotpoint.
Consumers often include up to date and innovative appliances in their new kitchen designs.
To respond to this trend, I work direct for kitchen companies such as Kitchen Architecture Bulthaup, to visit their clients offering a personal service tailor-made to their customer needs. I may cook with them, so they gain confidence in using their new tech appliances, such as steam ovens, teppanyaki, induction hobs, blast chillers or I will demonstrate the functions of the appliances and impart my expertise so the customer can get the full benefits when cooking with their appliance. My expertise extends to a wide range of premium manufacturers such as Gaggenau, KitchenAid, Sub Zero Wolf, Siemens, and Miele that these companies sell.
I have extensive expertise in cookware and pan brands.
Le Creuset were looking to showcase their premium range of cookware on a nationwide basis. The company commissioned me to work as their home economist, demonstrating in specialist cookshops and department stores.
