I taught them to cook

If you teach cookery or learn about cookery you might like my book I taught them to cook available on Amazon.

Stories of what it was like to teach exams in the 1970s – memories of all the dishes that had to be cooked for the practical exam. Find out what life was like in London in 1970s.


Could not put this book down, I loved home economics when I was at school & I can relate to a lot that Jenny wrote about.

Much of it made me smile and brought back memories of vesta curries and ‘exotic’ dining in Soho in Italian restaurants.

A real slice of nostalgia provoking many memories of my own lessons and early Food teaching. Jenny is so right about the exam.

The followup is underway on my Jenny Ridgwell Blog
