Brenda S.

Yrs old

I do not have any cooking training but my first attempt was at 4 I made my mom pancakes when she was sick. My Mom was a very good seamstress so cooking wasn’t her favourite thing to do so I cooked in my teens until 20. I helped cooks sometimes when I worked as a dietary aide in fancy seniors homes, when I worked at Sears cafe I made most of the sandwiches and wraps. I cooked for a few seniors when I worked as a companion. And did a bit of food prep!

I haven’t actually worked as a cook but many people thought I should have. I did help the cooks sometimes when I worked as a dietary aide years ago. I planned my Moms 70th birthday over 10 years ago hired entertainment, made most of the food and drinks people thought it was catered! I use to do lol all the cooking when my children where small, made most of the decorations my self, and often the cake. I use to plan and make things for parties. I had and my parents had. When I moved back to Victoria I did all the cooking for my parents and children. When I worked as a companion to seniors there were several I cooked for mostly lunch. I did a bit of meal prep for one guy! Love to cook my favourite is Mexican, some Chinese, some Italian and some more traditional Canadian cooking. I like making muffins, cookies, loaves but not bread. Desserts; usually mire like a parfait, Chocolate, chocolate dipped strawberries. am good at making drinks or virgin drinks I often made my children when they still lived at home mostly like a smoothie.

Recommended by Karen
I was Karen's parent's companion for the year 2016 while I worked for another agency I took them out to appointments, grocery shopping, scenic drives and whatever they wanted to do eg music in the park. I really enjoyed spending time with them and when I was there a companion. But I actually met Karen in junior high till she moved. I am friends with them all still to this day.
