“Theo demonstrated to our year 10 Food Tech class which was a huge success!  
Theo started with a talk about what they were going todo, a bit about his journey into food followed by some Q&A. He then guided the students throughout the hands-on demo with lots of tips and knowledge sharing. Theo kept the students enthusiastic throughout and was an experience the students still talk about. I’d recommend Theo to any schools or centres of learning that want to help further their Food Technology curriculum. We’re already looking forward to the next one!”

Tracy James-Fisher, Sir John Lawes.

“The unique experience these students have when Theo does a live demonstration has proved not only enjoyable, but stimulates their senses and tastebuds alike. Theo encourages our students to ask questions as he goes along and they all leave excited, energised and enthused.
 Theo’s contribution is invaluable for our students, it teaches them not only cooking skills but that with a vision and a passion to follow your dreams, anything is possible.”

“Theo came to our school to host a cooking demonstration and lesson for our year 2s. He was informative and helped get the students enthusiastic about cooking and having fun with food. It was a great combination of demonstrating and teaching-  all the children (30 in total) got their hands dirty following Theo and making their own pizzas from scratch, which were then cooked on site and eaten for lunch! Besides the fun, this was a vital element to our journey in teaching children life skills around food and one that we’d recommend for every school’
