Tamzin is passionate about bringing back the lost art of families and friends cooking together
Food activist and childhood nutrition advocate, Tamzin Cochrane helps the busiest of people to cook up something healthy and delicious, even after a long day. She also helps companies and schools educate around—and create a culture and environment that truly supports—healthy eating. Decades in the food service and hospitality industry have given Tamzin a well-rounded perspective on mealtime.
She holds a BA in Business Studies from University of Lincoln, a 2-year National Diploma in Hotel Catering & Institutional Operations from Hastings College of Art and Technology, and the full catalogue of certifications offered by The Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH). She has run catering events at stadiums and venues all over the UK.
These days, Tamzin is changing the conversation around food and nutrition by helping people to love the kitchen and in turn, love themselves. She is passionate about bringing back the lost art of families and friends cooking together, and she loves seeing people enjoy the amazing tastes and textures of their communal effort. She shares this message through virtual coaching and video courses, by speaking at corporations, schools, and events, and through her recently-released video course, Kitchen Basics.
Tamzin was born in England, grew up in Scotland, and now lives in Austin, Texas with her husband (who incidentally, is Scottish but grew up in England) and their children. When she’s not in the kitchen, she enjoys running, swimming, tennis, and Pilates.
