We thought it was about time you got to know the faces behind Seasoned. First in the series is Jules.

Name

Jules Gilbert

How long have you been with Seasoned and what do you do?

I’ve been working at Seasoned part-time for a year but have been involved with Seasoned for nearly 7 years. I help host course days as well as doing lots of things behind the scene like social media, blogging and recipe writing.

What did you do before joining Seasoned?

I’m best described as a freelance foodie. I’m a blogger, food writer as well as a cookery tutor. Before Seasoned I primarily worked in schools providing cookery workshops.

What is your favourite cookbook and why?

Hard to pick just one but it has to be Nigella – How to be a Domestic Goddess. The first cookbook I bought and it inspired me to ditch my traditional student diet and get in the kitchen with my husband and learn how to cook. Close second is Sarah Raven – Garden Cookbook. Beautiful, timeless photography and fabulous recipes.

What do you most like to cook?

I’m often described as the baker of the Seasoned team. I love baking cakes and bread. At the moment I’m trying to master sourdough and at home often have my 3 year old daughter in the kitchen with me helping.

What was your favourite thing to cook as a child?

There is photographic evidence of me cooking as a child. I did once attempt to blend a wooden spoon, but that’s a long story! My favourite thing to make was cheesecake or Christmas cake.

What’s your favourite Seasoned course?

It has to be the Will Torrent Patisserie courses. It’s perfect for keen bakers and the bakes you get to take home are incredible.

We’re a cookery school that loves a good cuppa so what’s your favourite tea and treat?

I like a good cup of Earl Grey with a slice of malt loaf .
