Clarkson most recently held the position of Sales Manager, Conferences and Incentives at The Hyatt Regency Auckland. Previous experience includes owner operator of icon Auckland restaurant The French Café, as well as more than a decade in the executive training and media.

The Auckland Cooking Academy is the brainchild of Wendy Muir, proprietor of long established and well-loved kitchenware shop Millys of Ponsonby Ltd. Says Muir

It became clear to us that The Auckland Cooking Academy is the best way of sharing our passion for all things culinary as well as bringing to life these new and delicious ideas. I am delighted to welcome Connie into our Millys family and am confident that her enthusiasm and love of food will be totally irresistible. “
