I was given a wonderful Christmas present to spend a day at Betty' Cookery School. I can already bake So I decided on the Passionate about Patisserie course to advance my skills. The whole set up is very professional yet also has a friendly and informal feel. Chris (who looked after us brilliantly all day) greeted everyone and we started... More

I bought my husband a chocolate making day for Christmas 2013 and an artisan bread making day for Christmas 2014 and he has thoroughly enjoyed both days. The skills that he has learnt are put to good.use on a regular basis and the tips that he has picked up have proven (no pun intended!) to be worth their weight in... More

I was treated to a cookery day for my birthday. The kitchen was very well equipped with enough space at each work station. The tutors were very informative, but also made it a relaxed and 'fun' day. Unlike another reviewer I thought the lunch was fine, and there were breaks for tea and coffee throughout the day. Having experienced my... More

My daughter attended the festive treats cookery school and had a thoroughly enjoyable day. The course was expertly run and the staff were very nice. The treats that were made were delicious and I would recommend it for children.

i was given a gift voucher for my birthday and went along to the cookery school yesterday for a "dinner party" course. What an amazing experience this was. The kitchens are immaculate and very well equipped. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and the demos are excellent. We were fed and watered all day with Betty's treats and a lovely... More

I have attended courses a number of times. It is always a delightful experience. The tutors are very helpful and attentive and nothing is too much trouble. The dishes that you make and take home are amazing. A day at the cookery school is like a breath of fresh air, you feel so energised and inspired. Thank you Betty's.

Just come back from a fabulous day at Betty's cookery school. Great fun, informative, and well paced; you come away with great bakes, the recipes and skills to recreate what you've learned, and a tummy full of all the wonderful food you're given! Really great day out, I'll certainly be returning.

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
