Tracey Cotterell

Founder & Teacher

This certainly isn’t a regular cooking website!

This membership grants you access to Tracey Cotterell’s head! A head brimming with the kind of intel home cooks dream about.


The Cooks Collective is the culmination of 40 years of training and cooking, the past 24 spent teaching others how to master enjoyment and success for their own kitchen.


It’s the virtual cooking companion to Matters of Taste, Tracey’s beloved cooking school in Western Australia. Dive in head first whenever you care to and cook from the wide range of recipes with tutorial videos or paddle around in the shallows improving your kitchen know-how.


Borne of a desire to reach as many people as possible and teach home cooks the art of intuitive cooking with confidence.

  • I’m a complete newby and spend so much on eating out and Uber eats, so I’m currently try to learn to cook for myself. Thanks for listening to what I need and producing videos on kitchen set up and pantry essentials. Really enjoying your videos so far.

  • I have no hesitation in saying that I feel The Cooks Collective it is very good value for money as the scope for content is vast. Everything is so very well produced. You cater for a wide variation of abilities and tastes and I’m thrilled to be able to take on board your teaching from afar.

  • I attended several of your cooking classes in the late 90's. I love your recipes and still use them. I decided I needed to ramp up my Domestic Goddess skills and I knew who could help me. Thankyou for The Cooks Collective... so glad you are still in business!
