What a great day. I went as a complete novice to both cold and hot smoking but came away feeling I had learnt an immense amount. Turan put across his obvious passion in an easy to understand and relaxed way. He took time to answer all questions regardless of how simple and had plenty of practical tips, hands on and... More

Turan's Cold & Hot Smoking session was full, mostly men (well, it is nearly Bar-B-Q-ing?), but an unusual 4 women too on the day I went. Everyone seemed very positive about the experience & it had a good balance of practical time & tuition, with a friendly atmosphere. The course was given to me as a gift & would probably... More

So there is one terrible review for this course which is based in communication for Turan. I had difficulty booking the course (due solely to a busy set of late notice personal events that meant I had to rebook several times). On one occasion it was the morning of the course I had booked to attend. One phone call to... More

Will, Thanks for reiterating what I always tell my guests when they have a problem with their bookings. I appreciate the review and thanks for taking a full and active part in the day. I hope you got something from the course and the resources links are going out in my next email. All the best Turan. More

Turan is an amazing tutor imparting a lot of information on smoking food while making it fun. Extremely thorough and demystified the whole art of food smoking for me. Could not wait to get home and get started on smoking everything in sight. Looking forward to the next time when I can attend another of his courses. Large variety of... More

This was my first ever cookery course and was a great day out. Turan was an excellent teacher and clearly very knowledgeable. Most importantly he was able to enthuse us all and give us the confidence to try it all at home. Whilst he had all manner of smoking equipment to show us on the day, I was able to... More

This was a really good way of seeing in practice how to go about cold and hot smoking. There was a mix of hands-on work and classroom learning ... followed by a tasting of the various foods smoked during the day. Turan is an accomplished trainer and made the day productive and fun.

Hi, Thanks for your kind words. As this was our first course at the venue we were a little worried about how it would all work out. What a relief to have such a good bunch of foodies there on the day. Thoroughly enjoyable day made better by your feedback. Thanks More

This review is limited to an observation on the communication skills of Turan Turan as despite my best efforts I didn't manage to attend the course I had booked on. My wife gave me a voucher for Christmas to attend a one day course and on the 23 June I attempted to make a booking. The web site was not... More

Hi, this is your second attempt after your last review was removed by trip advisor for being inappropriate. I have to hold my hands up for not replying to this email on my personal account and I’m genuinely sorry for that omission. I do get a great deal of spam on my personal email and therefore I tend focus my... More
