NEXT COURSE DATES – 2021

Feedback on 5 Day & 3 Day cooking courses held in Sept:

“She loved every minute of it and she has really grown in confidence, even in herself which is brilliant as she is very clever but very shy. She made good friends and said she changed numbers with them! ….. now Jemma you can just ask me to do anything and I can do it! She absorbed pretty much all of it from the hygiene to the knife skills, Garvey, Yorkies as she called them! To the baking, pizzas and sticky sauces! “

“The training was very inspiring. I did receive a handful of skills from you guys.”

“I keep meaning to write to you with a huge thank you. Stan absolutely loved the course, came home with a massive smile every day. So far he’s made us quiche and done a roast chicken dinner with yorkies. I am so impressed.  he’s very keen to keep going… we made cinnamon raisin bread today too.”
