Barny Haughton: Founder, Director & Cookery Teacher
I started teaching cookery in 1994 at my restaurant Rocinantes and opened a proper cookery school at Quartier Vert in 2000, initially just for children.
For me, teaching cookery follows naturally from my life-long love of the world of food and cooking and for its potential for bringing pleasure, connection, confidence and meaning to all of us.
Charlotte Fife: Cookery Teacher & Project Coordinator
I joined the Square Food team in January 2011.
After leaving Ballymaloe cookery school in December 2010 I started working as an assistant teacher whilst gaining experience in the catering industry at the same time. I gradually started teaching more and more and eventually became a full time teacher at Square Food Foundation focusing on community and school projects.
Eloise Morton: Operations Manager
I joined Square Food in November 2013 as a volunteer & December 2014 as the Operations Coordinator
Starting as a volunteer class assistant in November 2013 I very quickly fell in love with Square Food Foundation. The energy & enthusiasm that radiates from all the students & teachers is incredible, each lesson is a little piece of magic.
Sebastian Brochot: Kitchen Coordinator
I started at Square Food in September 2012 as a volunteer working alongside Barny and Charlotte.
I have worked in restaurants, hotels and event catering over the past 20 years. I have a passion for French food and believe that social interaction around food is very important.
Claire Allen: Fundraising & Communications
I started working for the Cookery School in July 2006 when we were still at Quartier Vert
I work at Square Food Foundation because it’s small, friendly, always busy, different every day and full of people (both staff and students) that making coming to work something to look forward to.
