We booked this one day course because Valantina has always been my husbands inspiration to eat and cook Italian food. On the course we made 5 different deserts from 5 Italian Regions. It was a busy day and Valantina had thought through how we could maximise the day and enable this to each take home our deliciously scrumptious puds. With... More

My wife gave me a token last Christmas for a course at the school. I live near London and my first thoughts were that it was a long way to travel for a day would it be worth it? Well, I have just finished the experience and it certainly was, I'd would even walk the journey! The reasons for me... More

Another fantastic course - British Pies. A big thank you to Chris Moorby. Also great to say hello again to Tina from North Carolina, who I met on the Italian Baking course. And to Emmanuel, who gave that course - since when all my bread baking has been a success 🍞 Can't wait to book my next course 😀

What a superb day. We made authentic Ciabatta, Focaccia and Pizza guided by the great Emmanuel Hadjiandreou. The lunch was wonderful and at the end of the course we went home with 4 pizzas two large Ciabatta and a Focaccia (see photo).

This course covered all the required aspects of artisan charcuterie - the facilities were excellent - there is nothing like being given half a pig to butcher to set one up for the week! The course content was well thought out and presented by Chris Moorby and Rich Summers. When i looked at the 50 or so items we had... More

Brilliant! A well researched & well taught 1 day course. Covered meat & fish preparation as well as sauces & marinades. We used various methods of BBQ cooking & smoking. The father & son team of Chris & Tom Moorby are so knowledgeable & enthusiastic about their subject. Would certainly go on another course.

My daughter won this course as part of a school event. As she was only 12 I had to attend with her. The school was very accommodating and was very happy for me also to attend to accompany my daughter. We chose this course as it was of most interest to my daughter. I wasn't sure how much she would... More

Hi - it sounds like the course more than met your expectations! And yes, AC in the butchery is a must and is something we are currently looking to get funding for - as a charity we have to raise money for such luxuries. We hope to see you again soon. Regards Joe More

Yet again, I had a fantastic day here learning all about chocolate. Shelly was a great tutor - friendly, patient and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in making professional looking, and tasting, chocolates!
