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”,

  • A good setting in a Italian restaurant led by a lovely lady with a sense of humour that got us to have a hands on experience which is what I wanted and she made it enjoyable. We got to sample our food and take some home. Also got to eat her homemade delicious bread and pesto. Would like to go on another of her courses.

    We booked the Colourful and Fresh pasta Making Course as a Birthday present for mum. We both thoroughly enjoyed it. Viki hosted a great interactive workshop firstly you're shown how to make the dough for your pasta and shown a number of different additives to not only colour your pasta but make it more nutritious. Following you're shown many ways to shape your pasta and how to use a pasta machine. Your pasta is then cooked, and you eat your own creation with some amazing sauces made by Viki (which i would recommend you get the recipe for). I couldn't recommend more! I'm now making pasta on a regular basis at home. Viki was a great host and the venue at la mama was a great setting. Definitely worth booking.

    A fantastic experience. Viki gave an enthusiastic demonstration which was both fun and informative. It has inspired the group to try new recipes at home.

  • 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!
