Welcome to The Cardamom Pod


I'm Anna Schwarz, The Cardamom Pod is my way of sharing my enthusiasm for food with as many people as possible. 


I believe that cooking & eating is one of the most satisfying & creative ways to bring people together. I have a wealth of  experience teaching people to cook and making food for events, and can offer both of these through The Cardamom Pod.

I am a Community Cook with 20 years experience. I have worked as Cookery Development worker at Brighton and Hove Food Partnership for the last 8 years, I teach for Yurt Academy, with Level Up nutrition and with the community group The World Food Project. I am offering Consultancy and Bespoke Classes to individuals and groups.

As an Events Caterer with even greater experience, a patisserie NVQ3 and a food safety 5* rating, I can provide food for all sorts of events; from meetings, to parties, to Burns Night Ceilidhs.

I'm happy to discuss all sorts of ways to use cookery so get in touch to discuss your ideas. You can email me at or ring me on 01273563375.
