How2boilwater.com was set up by Karen who previously worked for a major food retailer, where she was responsible for inspiring customers and employees to cook by creating recipes for various publications. When her son went to university and he and his friends decided they needed some help and advice to survive in the kitchen and, in 2005 How2boilwater.com was born. They have not become the next Jamie Oliver or Gordon Ramsay but they have taken the hints, tips and recipes with them as they’ve grown up.  Now, we’re one of the largest cookery schools in Hertfordshire, offering a wide range of courses from children’s birthday parties to corporate team building.
