What a fantastic experience, great value for money. We went on the Scottish Seafood Day and were guided by Andrew & Vanessa and a group of around fourteen others on the course. We loved every second, just the right balance of demonstration, practical skills, tips and ofcourse delicous tasting of the fruits of our labour at the end. We would... More

Went on the BBQ Day cookery course last sat by myself, was a brilliant day. Expert tuition, top quality ingredients and equipment combined with relaxed and informative environment made for a great day out. Highly recommend a day or evening out here! Don't be shy to go along yourself!

Foodie Friday is ideal for someone who is interested in food preparation and eating but is too lazy to do all the hard work oneself ! The first half of the evening is an excellent chef demonstration of cooking a selection of starters plus a main course. This was presented excellently by chef Andrew who was informative, humorous and interesting... More

Good evening, informative demonstrations, tasty samples and a food meal to finish the evening. Relaxed atmosphere and plenty of opportunity to talk to the chefs, either during the demonstration and over the meal

Demo and Dine is a great night out. There are lots of tasters during the demo followed by a delicious meal. Ingredients are available to buy in the shop along with lots of other goodies.

The cafe at the Cook School is attached to a small shop for buying various foodstuffs and cookery implements. The cafe serves all its food and drink in takeaway containers, but there is plenty of seating if you wish to stay and eat. My partner and I have been there several times, and we have always enjoyed the food, which... More

As well as demonstrating the recipes before having a go ourselves, Jacqueline gave us loads of useful information and tips. Well worthwhile for cooks of all abilities. Only negative was sometimes you had to go looking for equipment and... More

Did the simple suppers evening and enjoyed the whole event. Wine and food included in the price as well as instructions on cooking the various dishes. They also have a well stocked shop. Great idea as a gift.

I have been to the cook school before for their demo and dine evenings which both were fantastic. After going to the steak evening where you get to cook your own steak I thought I would give the full day cookery class a go. I have no experience in the kitchen what so ever, unless beans and toast count? After... More
