They do not teach you. They only make you repeat some recipes without the science behind that allow you to understand and to be creative. Also, the customer service is terrible, they are nor comprehensive neither sensible. I felt as they took all the money they could from me and more . Not helpful at all.
The only good is that it was clean.

Thank you for your review, Brisel. Please could you tell us what class you did as we take all feedback seriously. All the elements that you list are ones that do not resonate at all with us as we feel that we work hard to ensure that everyone leaves us feeling enabled and having enjoyed their class. We are proud of what we do so it would be very good to have more detailed feedback. We go out of our way to explain, as far as we can, the reason behind techniques that are taught. Please do come back to us so that we can understand what you felt was missing and so that we can address those issues. We are not used to having unhappy students so would like you to be in touch with us again. We have 5 stars from Westminster Council for hygiene so are pleased that you were struck by that.

I’m a keen baker but I had not been able to make profiteroles yet. After doing this Amazing course( which was run by a really passionate and friendly man who really knew a lot about what he was doing) I finally have figured out the right way to make profiteroles and have a lot more knowledge of all types of pastry. The recipes we used were fun and simple, but really effective and the 3 and a half hour session was very enjoyable. I highly recommend this cooking school!

What a great day I had with Rosalind and Jon at the Cookery School. Great 1 day course on chocolate making. Jon and Rosalind were extremely knowledgeable, personable and fun and really brought the art of chocolate making to life! For those amongst us with dreams of making chocolates as a small business to those who just want a deeper appreciation of this amazingly versatile bean, this is a wonderful course. Not only do you learn about chocolate and how it’s cultivated but you learn how to make chocolates using mounds, making at least 4/5 delicious chocolates yourself to take home and eat. I thought 1 day wouldn’t be enough but it’s enough to teach you the most important facts and methods you need to know to make your own wonderful (and professional looking) chocolates! I couldn’t recommend it more!

Dear Mrs. K

We are absolutely delighted that you enjoyed the chocolate making day so much. We set out to give a really comprehensive overview of how to make wonderful handmade chocolates and from what you say we achieved this and more!

We will make sure we share your lovely comments with everyone involved in making the class a success.

Best wishes,

Even though the course has "Absolute Beginners" in the title, I wasn't sure I would qualify.

However, within minutes of the first evening, I knew that it was a good choice.

I can't imagine a better introduction to cooking: the instructors and assistants were highly capable, patient and humorous; and I was fortunate to have enjoyable fellow students.

I'll now need to practise, but I wouldn't be surprised back at the school someday, for the next level.

Hi Sean

Thank you so much for the lovely feedback! I have let all the staff know how much you enjoyed it. It's always nice when someone take the time to make a positive review, so thank you.

By now you should have received a 10% off code for another class or course with us following your beginners course so we hope to see you back for the Intermediate course soon.

Regards,

the team at Cookery School
