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 little girls and a self-taught chef.

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 ourselves. 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 hands on 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

Testimonials


  • We booked Viki for our daughter's 8th birthday as she loves cooking and baking and we thought it sounded like a great 'party' idea. Viki totally surpassed our expectations - turning up with a beautiful freshly baked loaf of sourdough and homemade roast beetroot hummus, she set to work setting up for the party. She had even brought a personalised chef's hat for my daughter and a sourdough starter with instructions - such a lovely touch. There were colourful aprons for the kids to wear and they had an amazing time (and so did I!), we all learned so much. Using natural ingredients to create different colours of pasta dough, we ended up with an eclectic mix of shapes and colours that Viki then cooked up with a simple sauce that everyone tucked into - absolutely delicious! I found Viki a highly knowledgeable and inspiring lady, and a delight to have met. We were blown away by what a great party it was. Thank you, Viki!

    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.

    We visited the pasta making workshop at La Mama in Sheffield and had a wonderful time. Vikki is a great teacher and it's amazing how simple and satisfying it is to make fresh pasta. We enjoyed some of our creations on the day with some of Vikki's gorgeous pesto. (would definitely recommend), and had plenty left to make a few meals when at home. Would absolutely recommend for anyone and any occasion. Thanks so much Twiddle!

  • Viktoria did the most amazing party for my daughter and her friends. She taught them how to make pasta in a full and friendly way and they even got to taste it at the end with a delicious homemade sauce - and there was leftovers for us too! I couldn't recommend her highly enough!

    I attended Viki’s pasta making class at La Mama’s it was fantastic! Lovely homemade snacks were provided, we got to make two different colours of pasta and we got taught loads of different shapes, one was cooked to eat at the end of the class with a choice of homemade sauces and we got to take the other home to cook later! I can highly recommend.
