This was my first experience of a cookery course. I'd expected "hands on", but was pleased that we all [I went with 5 friends] - had every opportunity to participate. We took enough Italian food home to delight even the hungriest of abandoned family members! I was pleased that the recipes involved no odd ingredients or unexpected kit. All easy... 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.
