“Cooking for everyone!”
Reviewed 11 December 2012

I arranged a day with Kathy for my Wife, two Daughters in Law and my teenage Grandaughter.
They all commented on how friendly and welcoming Kathy was. The iinstruction was very easy to follow and delivered in a patient manner allowing each of them to work at their own pace.
The menu was extremely well thought out and the standard of cuisine was excellent.
Not content with wanting to try out the new dishes at every oportunity they all now want a kitchen to match Kathy's! Highly recommended, Ian Skinner.

Thank you Ian. It was lovely to see you at the W Sussex Expo and catch up with you. I was particularly pleased to learn that Sue is cooking Chinese food every week and that she is so confident now she doesn't even need to refer to the recipes I had provided! I'm looking forward to having her attend part 2 of the Chinese cooking course.

“Fabulous healthy recipes and tips in beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed 26 November 2012

I had the pleasure of attending one of Kathy's fantastic Cooking demonstrations. The experience was very warm, welcoming and intimate. A personal guided tour of her beautiful cookery school and home in Hayling Island made this a unique and wonderful day. There was an extensive range of courses available to choose from or a bespoke option is also available. Kathy clearly has a wealth of knowledge and love and passion for cooking. The food she prepared was delicious, healthy and the demonstration included lots of additional tips and suggestions. It was lovely to sit and eat the dishes at the end of the demonstration. Extremely good value - 5Stars Kathy !! Excellent. Kindest Marion (Fleet Hampshire)

“The Perfect Cookery School Experience”
Reviewed 15 November 2012

My neighbour and I are men in our early 60s and enjoy cooking. We wanted to extend our skills into Asian cuisine and attended a one day course at Food Fiends. Having been to other cookery schools with 20 or more fellow students, it was great to have a day's hands-on activity in Kathy's kitchen, guided by her and with her full attention. The atmosphere is friendly and fun and always interactive. I came away with not only an excellent Chinese meal to enjoy but with lots of tips to apply in my own kitchen. My pal and I will return for another course in the New Year. I just hope Kathy is not fuly booked by then.
