Vanessa Gerbrandy

I am the creator of Wild Flours, a website where I share inspiration to encourage parents to cook with their children using fresh seasonal ingredients. Workshops for children and parents are available to book during weekends and school holidays. Trained as a primary school teacher I live in The Netherlands with my two daughters and Dutch husband. I am passionate about cooking with children and sharing the love of food with them. As well as writing my own recipes for my website, I regularly contribute to family lifestyle blogs covering the topic of food and reviewing food products and cookery books. I also write a regular column for a lifestyle magazine covering travel escapes. I am currently planning to write an exciting cookbook for young children and continue to teach cooking to young children through my unique workshops from my home cooking studio.
