The whole event was extremely enjoyable and educational, with much appreciated help and information from the team. It was a great atmosphere, which also made it fun. We'll definitely come again for another course – Tim

The course was very informative and very entertaining. Even the simple things that you don't normally think about were interesting; the garlic tip was fab. The food was excellent and I cooked it myself! - Silvia
