Our Story!


Grow Cook Enjoy was founded by Jayne McGhee in 2014

A qualified professional chef and naturally talented gardener, beekeeper and allotment junky!

Having worked for years honing her craft in all kinds of kitchens, including working under Marco Pierre White and later moving into Food Services Manager roles, Jayne transferred her cooking knowledge and natural leadership skills to working with children.

Over the course of twelve years Jayne has worked in preschools and primary schools, bettering her ability to teach, and her knowledge of what works and what doesn't work when it comes to young children! In recent years her focus has been on gardening and cooking in early years settings. The culmination of all this knowledge has developed into her business Grow Cook Enjoy.

Grow Cook Enjoy has grown, introducing classes for teenagers and students, preparing them with essential life skills. We also run adult workshops teaching new skills and inspiring new recipes.

Passionate about education, gardening and cooking in equal measure, Grow Cook Enjoy is the natural fusion of everything she does best.

We hope to grow further and inspire everyone to Grow Cook and Enjoy fantastic food. We would love to here from you if you have similar passions .
