We went to Nick Nairn Cook School and cooked Beef Wellington. The course was fantastic, Nick Nairn was great, had so much fun and we eat our meal at the end. Would definitely recommend. We will be going back 😄

Nick and Tony are a great double act. They managed to get me to make a really tasty meal considering the liberal glasses of wine!. Got a lot of tips on how to improve my cooking skills. Enjoyed it so much can't wait to book for the next course. Fantastic value too..

Our eldest son is interested in cookery and is thinking of becoming a chef so when we saw Nick Nairn was now doing lessons for kids it was ideal. Excellent value at £29 for over 2 hours of tuition in a small group in the purpose built kitchen classroom. They made delicious spaghetti and meatballs: making their own pasta from... More

I attended Nick Nairn's new course at Port of Menteith yesterday, celebrating the dishes prepared for Her Majesty to celebrate her 80th Birthday. Fabulous day made even better by the unexpected presence of Nick himself. As this was a new course not everything went entirely to plan, which only added to the fun and humour that we all experienced throughout... More

It was a special Christmas menu and a very enjoyable day out. Nick and his chefs were jovial characters and made a learning session a lot of fun. The free... More

My husband gave me a voucher for the Nick Nairn cookery school. It was for £250 which was for a day with the man himself. Unfortunately there was very few classes taken by Nick Nairn and as I was working it did not work out. However, this did mean I could have one day plus a half day at the... More
