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.

I know I had set you a bigger challenge than normal and I appreciate that you pulled out all stops to make sure I got the most out of the experience. As I bake everyday normally it was lovely to have... More

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

Beautiful setting and plenty of wine to wash down your desserts. All in all,... More

We had the most amazing day with Philip - he taught us so many things it is hard to know where to start, cooking techniques, knife skills, fantastic recipes to cook. The day flew as it was so much fun. He was so patient, interesting, inspiring and motivating. We prepared our own desserts for our dinner during our stay at... More

I thoroughly enjoyed this one day course & learned many new skills. Phillip was very patient & took time to show us personally if we had a problem with any part of the dishes he was teaching us how to cook. I would recommend this course in particular for a few friends to attend together as lunch is also included... More
