From Jenny's blog 'I taught them to cook'

In 1970 I started teaching cooking to boys and girls in London comprehensive schools. I knew a lot about nutrition and the chemistry of food, but had no idea how to cook. My first bread lesson was a disaster.  Balls of dough went into the oven and hard lumps came out which the boys threw at each other when they left the cookery room. A gas oven blew up, setting fire to my hair and eyelashes but we carried on cooking, after I’d removed clumps of burnt hair and melted nylon overall. Since those times, I’ve written many textbooks for secondary schools and GCSE with over 60 titles which sell around the world, you can find some on this link.

What am I doing now

Well I run The Nutrition Program which is used by over 1000 schools in the UK and around the world. And I write textbooks and resources for Ridgwell Press for food education. And I belong to the Guild of Food Writers and attend wonderful lectures and trips and meet passionate food people

 

Louise T Davies (Founder Food Teachers Centre) has been in food education for over 30 years. Her career spanned teaching food and D&T in London and Surrey as well as senior leadership in schools, but also in curriculum development and teacher training: as Deputy Project Director, Royal College of Art Schools Technology Project; D&T PGCE course leader at Brunel, Bath, South Bank Universities and the Open University; and Ofsted ITE Additional Inspector.

With six years at Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA) advising government on D&T national curriculum and examinations and eight years as Deputy Chief Executive at the D&T Association, Louise led innovation across a diverse range of high profile curriculum and professional development programmes. She is nationally recognised for ground breaking work in food and textiles education (Food in Schools programmes, Licence to Cook, Active Kids Get Cooking), and across D&T. From 2014-16 headed up the School Food Champions programme, part of the School Food Plan.

She’s a prolific author with over 50 D&T textbooks, including GCSE Revision and Practice Food Preparation and Nutrition (Collins), Challenging your most able pupils in D&T, Meeting SEN in D&T and 101 Red Hot Starters. She offers advice to Department for Education and key food education organisations, working most recently as Adviser to the Department for Education on the new GCSE Food Preparation and Nutrition.  .

About the Food Teachers Centre 

FOOD TEACHER CENTRE is a UK based self-help group founded by Louise T Davies in 2013 and supported by experienced associates. It provides a platform to exchange best practice, give advice and support to less experienced teachers, answering practical concerns and keeping them abreast of the latest curriculum changes. A one-stop shop for like-minded professionals who seek help and information. It is free to take part and is facilitated through a closed on-line group, safeguarding the conversations of the teaching staff.

The idea of a 'Teacher's Centre' is a response to the lack of local and national specialist support and diminishing Continuing Professional Development with the demise of local authority advisers ASTs, lead practitioners and supporting organisations.

The Centre utilises new technologies, not requiring a physical space in new times, but providing the same high quality service that our traditional teachers centres were recognised for.

The Food Teachers Centre is a place of

  • creative and innovative ideas and action

  • practical solutions

  • learning and sharing
