“I purchased the smart raspberry cookery school franchise in April 2011. A mum of 3 – I have a passion for cooking and healthy eating . I found smart raspberry on the website whilst Looking for a birthday party idea for my daughter, best thing I ever did.

With a background in business studies the package appealed to me as the perfect business to work around my children and family life.

Prior to smart raspberry I have worked in schools as a teaching assistant teaching and educating parents and children in healthy cooking.

I am looking to expand the business further in Milton Keynes and spread the passion on healthy eating and cooking in schools.”

Asma Awan, Milton Keynes Franchisee

“Smart Raspberry…… THE BEST CLUB EVER!!!!! That’s how my daughter describes Smart Raspberry Cookery School. The Saturday morning and holiday clubs have taught my daughter how to cook a vast array of sweet and savoury dishes, which has increased her confidence and taught her to be responsible around the kitchen. The recipes are easy to follow and so good I have actually continued to use them myself. And when it came to ideas for my daughter’s 11th birthday party Smart Raspberry was an easy choice. My daughter and her 9 friends had great fun cooking up a main and dessert, definitely recommended!!”

Rachel Foreman, Parent

“Danesfield Schools’ association with Alicia, and all her team at Smart Raspberry, is almost 7 years now. In that time it has been one of the most popular After School Activities we offer (out of a choice of almost 40 each term). It is offers excellent value for money and the children obviously love it – the products of their hard work often turning up in lunchboxes the next day!”

Alison Potton, After Schools Coordinator, Danesfield School
