Louise Bale


The Cook School Bewdley is hosted by the popular husband and wife team Daren and Louise Bale.  Their impressive partnership covers over 20 years of working together in fine dining, hotels, restaurants and outside catering within their respective areas of expertise, Daren leading in the kitchen supported by his “wing man” Louise, in front of house.

Louise, whilst a qualified chef in her own right, chose to follow her heart to provide exemplary front of house service and superb customer experience in all the varying venues the Bale team have worked in over the years.

Nothing is too much trouble for Louise; providing leadership to her staff, a smile for her guests, advice on menu selection, and support for her husband in all that he does is unparalleled. Her informal and fun loving approach to life, shared with a real sense of community spirit and wanting to share her expertise in this new venture, the Cook School Bewdley is to be admired. 

Her goal is to share her experience in the culinary world and reach out to those with a love and passion for good food via the Cook School Bewdley.  She especially wants to reach out to the enthusiastic home cook whilst ensuring that the atmosphere is relaxed, fun and memorable for all.
