CookCamp was founded in 2008 by Danine Irwin; inspired by a love of good food, raising healthy children of her own and having been influenced by her Turkish, Spanish and Russian roots Danine grew up surrounded by excellent cooks, fabulous food and busy, noisy mealtimes.
Following a City career, Danine decided to leave the world of finance and excitedly pursued her love of food and teaching.
Danine is a graduate with a joint BA(Hons) in Childhood Studies and Working with Young People and Spanish, she has a diploma in nutrition and is a teacher of life skills, she is PTLLS (teaching in the Lifelong learning Sector) qualified.
Danine is a parent
educator and for the last 15 years has instructed and advised a number of first-time parents in baby massage, breast feeding and weaning, providing invaluable advice.
Danine is a busy mum of 3 young-adult children and appeared on Masterchef in 2003. In her spare time Danine plays competitive hockey and tennis!
A message from Danine:
"I love watching children dig around in a fruit & veg box and munch on juicy kiwis or sweet red peppers, walk around the supermarket eating a carrot or an apple and enjoy avocado and tuna-stuffed pita breads for packed lunch. Picking beans straight from the plants and eating them before they reach the kitchen!
Nothing beats a good quality steak and crispy fresh salad or pan-fried plaice served with fresh new potatoes!
I am passionate about getting children and teens into the kitchen;
encouraging them to learn about, taste and enjoy healthy fresh food!
Giving them the opportunity to learn skills that could lay foundations for a healthy future and even a possible career.
CookCamp gives kids the opportunity to taste, try and experiment with foods from different food groups, recognising the nutritious benefits and enjoying the fun of cooking."
