I had so looked forward to the patisserie course that I attended last weekend at Bettys. However, in my opinion it did not live up to the standards expected from this company. A course where on a bench where there were two sinks and two ovens there were three people. How can this work - not very well, being the... More

Betty's cookery school is the best cookery school in the north of England. The facilities are well appointed with sufficient space to prepare and cook. Unlike other cookery schools you don't have to share preparation ur ingredients with fellow participants. All the recipes are tried and tested giving you the confidence that you can recreate them at home. Betty's may... More

This is an excellent course held in a purpose built building on the outskirts of Harrogate. The post code they give you will get you to the gate just outside the building and the only people having a problem finding it were the locals who thought they know where it was. They run lots of courses and in my experience... More

I did the fish course, I have my own catering business, but wanted to learn fish filleting techniques. The course did just that and we produced some lovely finished 'ready for oven' fish dishes. I was concerned that the course may be below my level of competence. Not at all, it was fast moving, specialised course and I thoroughly enjoyed... More

My wife and I were bought from a group of friends as a wedding present. We did the bakign with chocolate course. Whilst the tutors were amazing and helpful (there is nothing they could have done better), and the recipes great, it didn't feel as good as it should for the money. The lunch in particular was very underwhelming, likewise... More

Loved this course, myself and 17 others had the 'Fish' course with Melissa and Lisa today and was very impressed with the tuition. The refreshments are Betty's quality too, so much so that I couldn't face an evening meal. Great day learning new recipes and techniques, can't wait for the next one !

My mum let me pick a Bettys cookery school course as part of my 18th birthday present. I chose 'passionate about patisserie' which so happened to be the day after my birthday. It was an advanced level course so was a bit apprehensive as I am just a passionate home baker but I needn't worry! The course was full with... More

I did the half day mini entertaining course. Great attention to detail. Lots of tips. Even chilled my food to be picked up the day after to fit in with our travel plans. Can't wait for another one.
