I would recommend this course to everyone! The Chief Joe was very friendly and helpful while cooking and talking us through every step of the way. All staff who we spoke to were very friendly. Would go back to this course and looking at booking another class to give it a try.

Never write reviews, however, the Tennents Training Academy cookery course on Italian Cookery was great, from start to finish. The chefs Joe Queen and his right hand man George did a great job explaining how to prepare the three courses which we then cooked ourselves and enjoyed afterwards.The day was very relaxed with a bit of humour thrown in by...

I can not recommend this place enough. What you get for the price was outstanding! We were greeted by Ross who was extremely friendly and offered us a wee drink. After that we were taken in the minibus up to the training room. Here Joe and Michela greeted us. There was already a massive spread on the table and we... More

Was a great experience learning how to cook American from a Scottish Chef. He did a great job and the class was fun. There was plenty of food and the interaction made the night very enjoyable. Everything about the evening was top notch from the reception to the end. Hope to visit again soon.

This was absolutely brilliant. We were greeted by a lovely lad who offered us a free drink and who took the time to explain what happened. We got a mini bus up the hill to the Academy where we were greeted by a lovely chef called Joe and his assistant Ali. We were shown how to make red and white... More

We'd been here previously for an Italian evening and returned for this night with John Quigley from Red Onion. Very enjoyable evening - good stories, some demonstration of recipes and then we all got on with our own cooking. Finnan haddie risotto followed by bang bang chicken. There were 2 of us but whole atmosphere is friendly and it quickly... More

This was our first foray to Glasgow & I was looking for something fun to do with friends for the weekend. We were not disappointed! After a few welcome drinks, Chef had us cooking our own meal - which brought back memories of home economics/domestic science class. We all sat down to eat whilst chatting to other people on the...

I attended the Tennent factory cooking and cocktails course with my boyfriend on Valentines day 2015. We received this package as a gift from my boyfriend's dad. In the kitchen where the course took place we were provided with a variety of free drinks before we starting. This made the atmosphere more lively. We didn't do a lot of actual... More
