My name is Fiona Mates.  I have cooked professionally for almost 3 decades, as a senior teacher at Leiths School of Food and Wine,  catering, restaurants and food styling.


For the last 10 years I've been a Thermomix advisor and run a team in London. We hold regular classes to help people get the most out of their Thermomix.

I am passionate about everything to do with food. Having lived and worked in Japan, Russia, the USA and Italy I write a blog here about Thermomix recipes.

I post regular videos about Thermomix and much more which you can find here, or on the BarkPlaceKitchen YouTube channel.  


And please follow me on Instagram BarkPlaceKitchen.
