Welcome

Cooking Classes and Nutrition Coaching in Sheffield & South Yorkshire

My name is Viki. I am a qualified Nutrition Coach and specialise in Culinary Medicine. I am also a mum of two young girls and a self-taught chef.

Twiddle is my “passion child”, born out desperation to deal with my daughter’s fussy eating habits. It was a side hustle for 5 years while juggling family life and my corporate job. I worked in anti-money laundering compliance for 15 years for DLA Piper, most of this spent managing a large centralised international team.

After having children my priorities changed and being diagnosed with IBS put things into a different perspective. Having developed health issues that the doctors tried to medicate me for (for the rest of my life) pushed me to find a better way to live. I re-qualified as a Culinary Medicine Coach that helped me not just to heal myself and manage my IBS but also to coach others to get better too. In 2023, I finally I left the corporate world so that I could concentrate on my family and focus on making Twiddle a full time job.

My mission is to help you tune into your body more to become healthier and happier. I believe that we all have the ability to be the best versions of ourselves and are able to make the necessary changes too. Sometimes we just need a little nudge and an expert who can assist in speeding the process up.

I am passionate about guiding you, teaching you and inspiring you to achieve this! I am here to be your companion on this journey that can be overwhelming and often scary when you first embark on it.

I can help you rebuild your relationship with your diet, your health and wellbeing and inspire you to cook new dishes while also having fun in the kitchen. I will teach you how to roll the perfect dough along with useful tips on how to make it more nutritious. You can also come along to my hands on workshops or cook with me online.

I love experimenting with different cuisines and my recipes are infused with herbs and spices I tried visiting different countries and some that are deeply rooted in my Hungarian heritage.

I also run in person cookery classes for team building activities, birthday parties and more. If you fancy joining me on an open class, please visit my booking page where you can find out the date of my next event.

With the “love of food”,

Viki

    Excellent cooking course. Booked for a friend as a 30th gift and we loved it. Viki is such a lovely host. La Mama's restaurant is a great setting for it too. Would highly recommend!

    My daughter and her friends enjoyed a fantastic afternoon learning new skills and having a lot of fun. They made delicious pasta which she enjoyed eating for dinner. She is now keen to get her own pasta making machine. 😋 Thanks Vikki for giving the girls a great experience.

    Vicky came to our house and managed to teach 10 blokes how to make and cook pasta, which turned out to be very tasty. I would highly recommend to others, for a fun, social evening. Vicky was organised, knowledgeable and managed despite our awkward kitchen. I have also since managed to make pasta with the kids. Thank you very much.
