However, as soon as I arrived, seeing the classy surroundings, meeting the lovely staff and friendly chef, it was clear it was going to be a good and relaxed day. I really couldn't... More

This was bought for me as a Christmas present from my husband and he couldn't have chosen a better gift! I was a bit uncertain about being the only person on the course for the day I booked but needn't have worried - in fact the experience was enhanced by the one-to-one attention that Philip gave me plus the opportunity...

A most enjoyable day. Tutor plus two of us. We prepared many interesting dishes and am now looking forward to preparing these for our friends. Lunch was what we prepared (plus wine) and the rest we took home - it fed my wife for two days! I learned a lot in a most relaxing atmosphere, thoroughly to be recommended. Would... More

Spent a brilliant time at Cheshire Cooks undertaking different culinary experiences. I came away with eleven items including bread and pizza making, several sweet dishes and savoury foods.I was fortunate that I was the only person on the course that day and had Phil's undivided attention.

Spent the day at the cook school with Philip Martin learning a range of Italian foods. Philip was patient and encouraging in every aspect of the day. The preparation of the food was explained in an easy relaxed manner. The food looked and tasted beautiful. I couldn't believe that I had done all of the food. Enjoyed tasting everything with... More

Excellent one day course, all "hands on" with no sitting around watching, we did it all. We produced 13 different items during the day. Philip even did all the clearing up as we went along. Many useful tips and techniques learnt during the day including knife work with fish and meat.

We booked at one day cookery vegetarian cookery course at Cheshire Cooks alongside a three night stay at the Green Bough hotel in Chester which has the same owners. Courses are run in a purpose built kitchen in a converted barn in the grounds of the owner’s (Phillip) house. The facilities are all excellent. The course itself was really fantastic... More
