She loves to use her knowledge and expertise to teach chefs, aspiring chefs, home bakers and children.

“An average home baker seeking out ways to make cookies and cakes 'prettier,' I chose cake for my first lesson — 4 cakes, buttercreams, eclairs, pies, breads and several chocolate classes later, I don’t know where I would be without Chef Heather. Not only does she share techniques and new ingredients, she adapts her style to reflect how her students learn. Can’t wait to see what’s in store for my next class! ”
“We had such a great experience - learning so much about chocolate and chocolate making, as well as having some delicious results to take home! We have zero hesitation recommending Heather and Eat The Art for classes, parties, weddings - whatever your function may be .. or, if you just really enjoy incredible chocolate, like us! ”
“We learned so much and the time passed like we were old friends. She is such a generous person and an expert in her field. Highly recommend her class as a unique gift idea! Thank you Heather.”
“In the Cake Decorating class, we made the icing and learnt how to decorate a cake and I was astonished by my finished product!! 10/10 would go again.”
“Heather is an absolutely amazing teacher! I’ve been taking classes for about a year now and have learned so so much, and had fun doing it! She is an amazing baker and I couldn’t imagine going to anyone else for lessons! ”
