Annie Perera

Senior Teacher

Annie has been inspired to work in catering since she was a child and she trained with us at a young age as a Commis Chef. In the 15 years since then she has also attained her Certificate in Education and C&G teaching qualifications and has mastered the refined and creative arts of cake decoration and food styling.

Therefore, Annie has an unrivalled knowledge of Tante Marie recipes and methods, and brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to all her colleagues and students. She is always ready to offer help, advice and patient encouragement – and her sensitive and empathic nature shows in her love of developing and nurturing younger, or more nervous, students. Her pride in their achievements – and their sense of self-worth – is what makes her a determined and caring educator.

Annie is also responsible for our extensive Lifestyle class syllabus, whereby we provide 1-day or short cookery courses for children, amateur cooks or specialist skill techniques.
