I was given a gift voucher for Lesley's Kitchen and decided to go for the basic bread course. I arrived the evening before the course and stayed in the b&b. When I arrived I was given a very warm and friendly welcome before being shown to my room which was immaculate and homely, Within 15 minutes Lesley had brought me my dinner, a fantastic pepper soup with basil and tomato bread to start and chilli con carne for the main. I was also given a home baked muffin in case I got hungry later in the night. Since I had plenty of time left before needing to sleep I decided to have a bubble bath in the massive double ended bath (a wonderful end to the evening). The next morning I went down to the kitchen for breakfast and was shown a wide range of home made granola and breads. I was also introduced to David and had a great time chatting to Lesley and David before starting the course.
The course itself was fantastically done.Our group of four was the perfect number for allowing everyone to get the help that they needed. We were able to work at a pace that suited us and made four beautiful loafs of bread. We received a very tasty lunch to break up the day and left very content. All in all the course was very relaxed and informal. I am in the process of deciding which course to do next and can't wait to go back to Lesley's Kitchen. I would highly recommend the course and b&b to anyone.
