So many top accolades from friends and family just had to try one of Turans courses. Not surprisingly I came away more knowledgeable, better informed and having had a great afternoon. Perfectly pitched tuition, the right balance of practical and theory. Lovelly location, leave time before for a walk on the estate and maybe visit some of the other inhabitants... More

I had previously attended Turan's smoking course which was excellent. When the email arrived informing me of the sausage making course I thought this would be the ideal course as a gift for my partner who had always said he wanted to make sausages. The course was very informative and detailed as I thought it would be from Turan. There... More

I brought (selfishly) a couples day on the Cold & Hot Smoking course, for my boyfriend's Christmas present. The day was enjoyed from start to finish. The venue is in a lovely setting, which always begins to heighten expectations on arrival, and these were certainly not reduced by the day's class. As first timers to food courses, my partner and...

As a trainer myself, I was very impressed with the course - in just about every aspect. So pleased that I held off buying a smoker before the course, a real eye opener which paid for itself through practical and very easy guidance on making my own cold smoked. I would strongly recommend this course to anyone interested in taking... More

Another excellent day on a course provided by Turan. Having attended the Smoking course three years ago I was anticipating a great day and that's exactly what I got ....would recommend to anyone. Returning from the previous course I was amazed how quickly I got home smoking myself and my husband used Turans plans to build my smoker which is... More

I really enjoyed the day spent learning how to both hot and cold smoke food and that you can even smoke food in a large cardboard box! Turan was extremely knowledgeable, not only about the food side of things but also the smoke side. It was good to get technical about smoke at times, not just the flavour. Lovely soup... More

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
