Guest feedback

A fantastic day. Nick and the team were fantastic. I have really learnt a lot and am inspired to try more dishes at home! My confidence has gone from 2 to 10!

Friendly and good instructors. I’m a pretty good cook but I learnt things of value.

Loved the day, left feeling knowledgeable, confident and full of lovely food.

It was a fabulous course. The recipes were clearly demonstrated. The atmosphere was relaxed and everyone we met went out of their way to make the whole experience wonderful.

A really brilliant day, a perfect mixture of serious cookery demonstrations, good humour, useful tips, excellent food and splendid wine!

This is a day I will remember forever.
