IMPROVING your boardroom and kitchen skills will be the aim of a new workshop in York.

Well-known local chef and tutor Sharmini Thomas is teaming up with renowned Scarborough-based business and personal development coach Ros Jones in a "one-of-a-kind" workshop.

Blending the concepts of team building and personal development with the mindfulness and creativity of cooking, the pair will be delivering what they call a "unique development workshop" on May 28 at the Joseph Rowntree School in York.

Sharmini has been successfully delivering interactive Indian cookery workshops in York for more than 20 years.

Ros works with customers throughout Yorkshire helping business owners develop their teams and successfully employ the actions and behaviours to enable their businesses to thrive.

Ros said: "Working with Sharmini is going to be an incredible experience not just for me, but for our customers also – it will be fun day with explosive flavour!’’
