      Chinese Cooking Class
      We had a wonderful time last night at the Dough House Chinese cooking class. Mike was a great teacher, very knowledgeable & friendly. The dishes we made were all delicious with a particular mention to the Pork Adobo which was amazing! Thanks Mike, looking forward to the next one!

      Fantastic pasta cooking class
      An excellent immersive experience learning how to make lots of different pasta and truly divine pasta sauces. Fulden's cosy kitchen was the perfect place and learning in a small group is so much fun. Fulden was so interesting and knowledgeable and the resulting pasta was honestly the best we had ever tasted! Thank you so much, we will certainly be back soon.

      Great experience
      We thoroughly enjoyed our pizza making course with our lovely teacher, Fulden. It was a very professional and friendly experience. We are in our mid seventies but the course would be enjoyed by all ages. We will definitely be trying another course soon.

      Perfect pasta making experience
      We had an amazing time at the Dough House with Fulden. We had a ravioli class. It was informative but fun at the same time. We made the dough, learnt about fillings, and made the ravioli, it was cooked and then we sat down to eat it with some home made lemonade. It was so much fun and incredibly tasty!

      The most amazing day!
      Even from my initial enquiries and correspondence I had a really good feeling about Fulden and the courses she offers at the Dough House. We booked on to her pasta making course as a surprise 21st birthday gift for my daughters and it was the most wonderful day for us all. Everything about our experience was exceptionally satisfying, from the moment we stepped inside the stunningly beautiful shop, to the warmest of welcomes from Fulden and her very able assistant Jo. Fulden’s teaching style is first rate. She willingly shares her extensive knowledge of fine ingredients and flavours with a naturalness that is both passionate and engaging and she calmly guides you through each step and technique you have to undertake. How ready we all were to sit down and enjoy the fruits of our labours. It was an absolute feast. Our handmade pasta tasted so good. It was fresh and incredibly light, only to be enhanced by all the delicious meat and vegetarian accompaniments we enjoyed with it, along with colourful salad, fine wine, and a sumptuously light dessert and freshly ground coffee. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending to anyone a cooking experience with Fulden at the Dough House. It will certainly not disappoint and I guarantee you will leave feeling happy, knowledgeable, energised and most certainly very full indeed. Thank you Fulden for a very special day which we will always remember with great fondness. We wish you continued success in all your endeavours. Suzanne Emily and Megan xxx

      Wonderful Pasta Making Experience!!
      We booked this wonderful experience as part of a hen party. We had a large group of us fit perfectly into the beautiful decorated kitchen in Stratford. We all had a great time, learning about how to make pasta and ravioli and getting to try it out ourselves. There was the perfect amount of instructions and teaching about the pasta, as well as getting to learn how to make the very tasty pasta sauce. When we got to eat our pasta creations the dining area was even thoughtful decorated for the hen party. We would completely recommend this for any seasoned or unseasoned pasta enthusiast!!!!

      An amazing experience!
      What a fantastic experience! Spending time with Fulden is delightful, she is a brilliant teacher, charming and very knowledgeable. The venue is beautiful, warm and welcoming. The Sourdough class was a lot of fun and the bread we made tasted amazingly good. It was such a great afternoon and I learnt so much, I’ve booked up for three more classes!!

      Great cookery class - top quality ingredients and such a lovely teacher in Fulden.
      What a great evening! Fulden is a great teacher - relaxed, informative and fun. There were 6 participants on the Friday evening class we attended - after introductions we got started on making our flatbreads and then onto the most amazing sweet doughnuts which we ate as soon as they were cooked - a great idea as these kept us going until the savoury food was ready and we would not have had room to eat them after eating the savouries! We worked as a group to create a number of other dishes. The ingredients were top quality and the smells and flavours amazing. We finished cooking around 8pm (having started at 5pm) and then all sat around the table with Fulden to share the food we had made. There was far too much for us to finish, so we shared the leftovers into the pots provided by Fulden, and enjoyed them the following day for lunch. A really enjoyable evening of cookery and delicious food. Will definitely be going back to do another of the courses.

      A MUST visit for a memorable day!
      My boyfriend and I visited during a long weekend trip to Stratford upon Avon. We’ve always wanted to do a sourdough class and we are SO glad we chose Fulden’s class at the Dough House. Fulden is a phenomenal teacher and such an inspiring woman. It was an honour to meet you and we’ll definitely be back to see you when we are next in the area! The class was so informative; we learnt loads, baked four different loaves to take home and have techniques/skills that we can use in the future. She made the lessons easy to follow but fun and personal! I would recommend these classes at The Dough House to anyone (no matter what level!). It was an amazing day and we’ll definitely be back. Thank you!! X

      Yummy, enjoyable & wonderful!
      One of the best experiences ever! A perfect gift for my dad's birthday who also thoroughly enjoyed it. Fulden was so welcoming and friendly, the environment and atmosphere was lovely. I had a lot of fun learning about the making of pasta as well as eating it! Definitely will be going back :)

      Pastry delight
      A stunning setting for a fun filled educational afternoon. Fulden is fantastic, she knows all of the tricks and tips in the kitchen, is full of knowledge, experience and beautiful travels stories. We had an afternoon of all things pastry, a private lesson and we left not only with lots of yummy food and gifts from the mini shop but also with the want to do more lessons. Fulden is the best host, setting a beautiful table and having relaxing jazz music in the background we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, Thank you Fulden

      Fantastic dough making experience
      My daughter and I booked into the pasta making course, Fulden was so welcoming and we thoroughly enjoyed our 3 hours. We learned to make different types of pasta and fillings and a delicious pudding. The setting was beautiful and felt very homely. We then sat and enjoyed all of the food we had cooked with a glass of wine and a glass of delicious juice. We were so inspired we then went into Stratford and bought a dough making machine so we can use our new skills at home. We will definitely be back for another course very soon.

      Another Amazing Afternoon Tea.
      This is our 5th visit to Fulden and the The Dough House and once again she really made a lockdown birthday special. Our sons 1st birthday was so important to us and Fulden is so lovely and happy to tailor the afternoon tea to our particular likes and dislikes. The food is so beautifully presented and tastes incredible. Eveything is so fresh and there are a wide range of options. I cant recommend the Dough House enough, we can’t wait to book on to some of her classes when the world gets back to normal.

    What a wonderful experience my adult daughter and I had at Fulden's. She is an amazing hostess and baker and her home is spacious, warmly and lovely decorated and her scones - moist and delicious. Oh, and her homemade jams- wonderful - not your store bought jams!

    We had such a great time that we told all our friends (and of course showed our pictures) and now we have a number of friends who are excited at the possibility of coming back with us for a ladies retreat. Can't wait! It will be awesome!!

    When I mentioned to our family that I'd signed us up for a baking class in the Cotswolds after my husband's business trip in London, both my father and husband were not very enthusiastic. But they went along with it anyway, and after a wonderful afternoon with Fulden, who is brilliant, kind, thoughtful, and clever, who taught us some of delicious recipes that were uber-popular at her café and bakery, and who devised a delightful tea party for us all to enjoy the treats of our labors ... guess who had the best time out of all of us? Even more than my mom, son, me, and our family friend? Exactly! My dad and husband. This is an experience for everyone ... even those who wouldn't sign up on their own. We have great memories and have even baked the recipes at home, too. I highly recommend it.

    Fulden was a great host and made us feel very welcome in her home. She gave us some really good tips for making scones, cakes and jam so I would recommend this course for bakers of all levels. Hoping to return for another course soon!

    I strongly suggest this experience for anyone (single, couples, families, friends..). Fulden is a great cook and an awesome host. In addition to learning about baking, you have a wonderful time. I took part in this activity with my two kids (aged 10 and 12) and we all three had a great time. It's also a great chance to meet new, interesting and superkind people as we did :))
    If I ever come back I'm taking other courses as well either on my own or with my kids.
    Thanks Fulden for your time, patience, teaching and making the most of our afternoon. Hugs,

    Fulden was an excellent host from the outset and made us feel instantly welcome in her home. The venue was amazing and the layout was great for our afternoon tea experience.
    Our experience began by making our own homemade jam, which Fulden explained and modelled before letting each of us have a go. Whilst waiting for our jam, Fulden gave each of us a glass of champagne, which was a great touch! Afterwards we began making a chocolate fudge cake, where Fulden explained each of the ingredients and the method to make it. Again, she gave each of us time to have a go at a different part of the baking process. Whilst waiting for the cake to cook, we then went to a different area of Fulden’s wonderful kitchen and we each made a different flavoured scone. Once again, Fulden was clear in explaining each ingredient and the method that we should use.

    After all of the baking had been completed, we sat down on a separate table which had been laid and decorated beautifully and we enjoyed the food that we had created alongside some extra bits that Fulden had produced herself.

    Overall, the day and the experience was absolutely amazing. Fulden was a wonderful host who taught us so many new skills and offered us an insight into all of the baking knowledge that she has. I would highly recommend attending one of Fulden’s classes and I’m sure we will be booking another experience as well!

    Thank you Fulden for a wonderful day!

    Fulden is a superior teacher and hostess. She posseses a worldly charm which enhances the adventure. She effortlessly orchestrated the natural flow of receiving her students, inspiring socialization, filled our minds with new knowledge and gave us the experience of High Tea. I recommend this experience to all!!

    Fulden is an amazing baker- she knows the science of baking and will teach you some great tips and tricks from how to easily make your own clotted cream to which flour is yields the softest, lightest, fluffiest scones ever!!! We got to make Eve you could imagine for a full proper Afternoon tea- it was truly a delicious meal!!! We shared bubbly and put on fancy hats. The table was set with sweet dishes. Honestly, I had the best time making and eating it all!! I can’t wait to try making the scones and Victoria sponge cake! I would like to be able to go back and try her pizza class!!! Thank you Fulden! You are beautiful inside and out! You have a great sense of how things should be! Anyone who attends her cooking and baking experiences is truly in very good hands!!!!

    I was looking for a special experience to do with my best friend and the afternoon tea experience was SO PERFECT. I am not sure I will be able to find the words to do it justice!

    Fulden welcomes you into her home and within minutes you feel as though you are with an old friend. We learnt to make jam, victoria sponge and various different scones. Despite the fact that we were both novices she made the learning fun.

    The whole time I was there I felt like I was absorbing Fulden's passion for food, family and travel. If you have seen the Netflix show 'Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat' then you will know exactly what I mean!

    To wrap up the experience we finished with a really cute tea party where we enjoyed the amazing food we had cooked.

    There is a famous quote that says 'People won't remember what you said or did, they will remember how you made them feel'. Well... I do remember what Fulden said....and she sent me the recipes but mostly I couldn't agree more that what sets this experience apart is how she makes you feel. By the time we were leaving, we were sad to say goodbye!

    This is the best experience day I have ever done!

    My mother and I had the most wonderful afternoon recently with Fulden, who is a delight. And such a talent! We've had scones all over the UK and all over the world, and the ones she taught us to make were hands down the best. The first bite was a revelation. And her homemade jams... I can't wait for a cookbook! Not to mention, the setting in her lovely kitchen was charming, Instagram-worthy. She was such a pleasure to talk to, so easy and warm. And we really can't wait to go back, next time with friends!

    My baking class was a highlight of my trip to England, and I hope I can go back sometime and take another! Fulden is so gracious and lovely, and she is an amazing cook. Her home is set up perfectly for the classes...very roomy and welcoming, with lots of space for large groups. And the food...oh my gosh! I can't believe how delicious everything was, or how many treats I left with. The recipes and techniques were very easy to follow and yielded fantastic results. I feel really confident that I will be able to make all these treats myself, and I can't wait to try out my new dishes with my family during the holidays. I just can't recommend this highly enough. Fulden is a gem!
