Mum No.8, Regan Anderton

Mum No.8, Regan Anderton

Regan Anderton is a graduate of one of the Successful Mums’ Business Start-up courses in 2015. She had a passion for food and was already writing a food blog, What I Ate Last Night, when we met. From there she has made some giant leaps!

What have you achieved in 2016?

I have:
  • opened my new business, The Cooking Shed;
  • won BBC1’s ‘Yes Chef’;
  • secured a partnership with Mount Vineyard in Shoreham offering private dining and cookery lessons to their guests;
  • secured a partnership with Scott’s Kitchen in West Wickham to run a pop-up supper club once a quarter;
  • been commended as ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ at the Bromley Business Awards;
  • received 5 Star ratings from all the customers who have visited The Cooking Shed since opening.

How have you achieved this?
I have achieved this through a lot of hard work (as every business owner knows!) and through having clear goals set at the start of opening my business. Everything is to help assist with achieving my end goal. Successful Mums have really helped me on my journey and continue to do so.

What does 2017 hold?
2017 will hold lots of new fab cookery lessons and food experiences for adults and children, along with a cookery book and The Cooking Shed branded range of children’s cookware. The Cooking Shed will also be looking to help bring food knowledge and cooking skills to local schools.

Festive Traditions...
I love stir-it-up Sunday, when each member of the family gives the Christmas pudding a stir for luck.

Watch out for The Cooking Shed's #giveitatry campaign in January - with lots of free skills and cooking demonstrations, tips and advice given throughout the month. Visit and like for more information.
