    A Fabulous Day of Cookery!
    A fabulous day learning about making pies and puddings. Nigel is a successful, experienced and talented chef - but with the patience and the skill to pitch the process at the level of the amateur recipe follower. A really enjoyable day with much learning and much delicious food to taste and take away at the end of the day. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to improve their cookery skills.

    Fantastic day cooking!!
    My son and myself had a full day cooking experience with Nigel. I didn’t know quite what to expect but it certainly exceeded all expectations. Nigel was a great host and couldn’t do enough to accommodate our every need to make the day special and unique. We made so many things and had Nigel’s expertise guiding us throughout. It was fantastic!

    Lobster half day cooking course
    Me and my husband did the half day lobster cooking course. We throughly enjoyed our day. Nigel was very welcoming and explained what we were doing very clearly. We were pleasantly surprised how many dishes we made (3+) and how much food we had to eat and take home. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a date activity or to learn a new skill.

    Italian Cookery Lesson
    We booked the Italian full day cookery course and had a fantastic day. Surprised at how much we cooked during the day, learnt some new recipes and picked up some useful tips along the way. Nigel was brilliant and made the day very enjoyable for us both. We will be booking another course in the future.

    Fantastic experience
    An amazing day on the nice and spicy workshop. The day was so relaxed but I learnt so much left with some amazing and tasty food. My daughter wants me to make more. Most of us have food allergies and Nigel was amazing in making sure that everything was safe and adapted recipes so we could all make our food 😊

    Pudding and Pie ( memorable )
    Arrived yesterday for a pudding and pie course. Nigel greeted me at the entrance and I immediately felt at ease and even better when he said it was a one to one course. The knowledge, tips , passion for cooking was in evidence from the start. The day absolutely flew by and I was embracing every second . A gorgeous chicken leek pie with broccoli for lunch and sticky toffee pudding late afternoon went down a treat. A larger version of the pie I took home with me along with 8 more sticky toffee puddings, a sumptuous pork pie and 2 large steak and mushroom puddings not forgetting a salted caramel sauce. I learned so much and obviously my family were delighted with the food I brought home. I can’t thank Nigel enough for giving me a day I’ll never forget, it was truly inspirational. Chris Hanslip

    A fabulous educational experience
    My husband and I had a fantastic day on the Saturday Cookshop course, which we would thoroughly recommend. We made the most delicious dinner party menu that we then brought home and shared with friends who were delighted to be our guinea pigs! Nigel was a wonderful host, so knowledgeable, interesting and kindly shared lots of extremely useful cooking tips. We bought Nigel’s cook book and have tried a number of the recipes which have all been easy to make and very tasty. Thank you Nigel for an amazing day, we will be back to future expand our cookery skills!

At the Brighton Foodies Festival we did the Thai cooking class. Little did we know that we would end up cooking our selves the most outstanding green chicken curry - all from fresh original ingredients. Making our own curry paste and own noodles. Such a delicious meal so much nicer than the fried offerings from all the foodie stalls.

Nigel was a great teacher and showed us the true authentic way to cook a green curry. I highly recommend this class.

We left with lunch aprons and a goody bag .. what a treat. Thank you Nigel and your lovely helper.

I do think you should advertise ‘ cook your own Thai green curry meal’ so people know they will end up eating what they make… so Yummy thank you.
