The Workshop People

Jette Virdi completed the Ballymaloe 12 Week Certificate Course in January 2013 and has been really busy since leaving Ballymaloe last year. She started as a private chef and then got involved with food styling and worked on several cookbooks by Irish TV chefs {Neven Maguire, Donal Skehan and Sharon Hearne-Smith}. Jette has written articles for magazines such as Easy Food Magazine, done a series of 12 video recipes, developed recipes for restaurants and cafes and lots of other great stuff! We asked Jette what her plans were for 2014:

“2014 is such an exciting year! I'm still working as a food stylist for editorial work, I'm writing recipes for cookbooks, I'm doing private catering and I've recently started up a company called The Workshop People where we will be holding bespoke food and design workshops all over Ireland. It's super exciting!”

“The 12 Week Course taught me to have the confidence in myself and go for it whether it's in the kitchen, in business or just life in general.”
