I would like to thank Jane and Philip for a great day on Monday at the advanced baking course. I know I had set you a bigger challenge than normal and I appreciate that you pulled out all stops to make sure I got the most out of the experience. As I bake everyday normally it was lovely to have... More

Spent the day at the cook school with Philip Martin learning a range of Italian foods. Philip was patient and encouraging in every aspect of the day. The preparation of the food was explained in an easy relaxed manner. The food looked and tasted beautiful. I couldn't believe that I had done all of the food. Enjoyed tasting everything with... More

Excellent one day course, all "hands on" with no sitting around watching, we did it all. We produced 13 different items during the day. Philip even did all the clearing up as we went along. Many useful tips and techniques learnt during the day including knife work with fish and meat.

We booked at one day cookery vegetarian cookery course at Cheshire Cooks alongside a three night stay at the Green Bough hotel in Chester which has the same owners. Courses are run in a purpose built kitchen in a converted barn in the grounds of the owner’s (Phillip) house. The facilities are all excellent. The course itself was really fantastic... More

- Baker's Dozen Course - If you're looking for a crash course in basic domestic baking, this is a relaxed and friendly way to learn how to make a multitude of dishes, from mille feuille (yes, you do make your own creme pat) to fresh pasta. Beautiful setting and plenty of wine to wash down your desserts. All in all,... More

We had the most amazing day with Philip - he taught us so many things it is hard to know where to start, cooking techniques, knife skills, fantastic recipes to cook. The day flew as it was so much fun. He was so patient, interesting, inspiring and motivating. We prepared our own desserts for our dinner during our stay at... More

I thoroughly enjoyed this one day course & learned many new skills. Phillip was very patient & took time to show us personally if we had a problem with any part of the dishes he was teaching us how to cook. I would recommend this course in particular for a few friends to attend together as lunch is also included... More

A brilliant day of cooking, we made over 14 dishes and I'm actually using the recipes at home. They do need to put an "A" board sign outside as I drove past it several times and nearly went home.

I spent the most wonderful day last Saturday at the Cheshire Cooks school, set by the lake in leafy Cheshire, with the charming, easy going and supremely knowledgeable Philip Martin and would recommend anyone to take the same journey through some of the core skills of cooking. His relaxed and informative style with a focus on hands on doing made... More
