Introducing healthy eating habits from a young age with the help of Gastropaws

The Gastrognome (Mhairi) has opened my eyes to my relationship with food from what I ate and cooked to how I shopped. Helping me to realise that yes, I can cook and I don’t have to spend a fortune to serve healthy and tasty meals for the family.


In my many interactions with The gastrognome (Mhairi) over the years she has demonstrated an enlightened approach to food and health. Combining her food knowledge with her understanding of social issues and community needs, enables her to engage with individuals and businesses in innovative ways. All of this is enhanced by her sparkling personality.

The Gastrognome (Mhairi) Is an amazing teacher, her knowledge of food is great!. I absolutely love her techniques and ways of getting people to enjoy her way of thinking. Her food makes you wish to go back, and she makes you want to try her techniques at home. Her food makes you feel very happy. And she is a fantastic person to have conversation with.


I have been on a lot of courses but this by far was the best! After many years away from work I had to complete a course for my new job. I was nervous especially with an exam to pass at the end but Mhairi made it fun and informative at the same time. I passed and that was down to Mhairi's teaching skills!
