About Us

We are your kitchen Inspiration

The Cooks Collective is a trusted resource of inspiration for your home kitchen. Find new ideas, watch entertaining tutorial videos, listen to thought-provoking expert conversations and cook wonderful recipes to your hearts (and appetites) content.

We are more than just another recipe website

Not just another recipe website, we have been teaching for over 20 years at our cooking school in Perth Western Australia. With well over 75,000 people having come through our kitchen doors since 1997 we’ll guarantee with our expert guidance you’ll love cooking more, find it becomes easier and easier and broaden your home culinary skills to take you to the heights you’ve always dreamed of.

We are all about having fun in the kitchen

The Cooks Collective founder, qualified chef and teacher Tracey Cotterell has never-ending energy for cooking and you’ll laugh your way through her demonstration videos with her quirky sense of humour. She is serious about cooking, but doesn’t take cooking too seriously!

She says “I wanted to reach more people and hopefully inject some fun into something we have to do every day. Using a broad range of easily available ingredients you can increase diversity in your diet with our trusted cooking school recipes, remove the guesswork out of trying to make dishes taste good by learning about flavour, and the techniques on the videos will guide you through the cooking process.”

We are suitable for everyone

The Cooks Collective is an easy to use resource with search functions, filters and a favourites area so you can always find what you are looking for. You’ll even learn about No-Nonsense Nutrition from Hayley. Many recipes are suited to a vegetarian diet so no-one misses out on enjoying our tasty food.

We are strong believers that cooking will improve your life

The Cooks Collective team are firm believers that cooking improves life, mentally and physically. Let’s keep this basic human pleasure as part of our daily routine, share in fresh seasonal produce and great conversations. Enjoying the company of loved-ones over a good meal will bring a smile to your face – every time.
