From the outset Holly and David could not have been more helpful in planning a surprise cookery course using a wood fired oven for my partner on his 30th birthday. In just one day we learnt how to light, heat and gauge the temperature of a wood fired oven in order to cook a huge variety of different dishes such... More

To celebrate my youngest daughter's 45th we decided to visit the Manna from Devon Cooking School for their inaugural Sunday Lunch. 24 people attended in their small dining room. The lunch was also a wine tasting event with various wines provided by a... More

What a great couple of days spent at Manna from Devon. We've been before for a Pizza making day and learnt a lot but more importantly had a great laugh in the process. It was so good we came back again to learn what else you can achieve with a wood burning oven. We cooked suckling Pig, fish, sour dough... More

Now equipped with a wood burning pizza oven Manna have built up a great following from serious foodies who appreciate good food with an international flavour. David and Holly have traveled the world searching for new food experiences and bring these back to their school in Devon for everyone to enjoy.
