Erika Adler shares her love of cooking and eating good food, much in the way that the late lamented Valerie Hedgethorne, one of her former teachers, did with her monthly recipes. Erika worked as a cook and caterer for many years before becoming a cookery teacher to adults and young people. She developed and ran the Community Cookery Project for the Brighton and Hove Food Partnership, training future cookery leaders and passing on her passion for fresh, simple and delicious food to groups and individuals of all ages.
Valerie Hedgethorne taught cookery & cake decorating for many years in Brighton before becoming a Home Economist and writing for the national magazine CAKE for 20 years. Valerie is a past president of the British Sugarcraft Guild & is a member of the local Guild Branch, which meets monthly for demonstrations of all types of cake decorating. Anyone with an interest in cake decorating is welcome – for more information phone the magazine.
