Turan was very good at tutoring - and Alison was very good at keeping us provided with what we needed throughout the day (her home made soup was excellent - and their catering to me as a 'gluten free'...

Turan is a very knowlegable in the field of smoking, he is world wise character with a great sense of humour. For anyone who wishes to learn the art, his basic course is a must.

I went on the course for a birthday present - one of the best presents ever! I wasn't expecting much but this turned out to be a very instructive, interactive, informative, and best of all enjoyable course. I was able to buy the necessary merchandise at the end of the course and have been using it ever since. Definitely a... More

Bought this as a birthday present for hubby so he could then smoke nice things for us at home. He thoroughly enjoyed the course, apparently the tutor was excellent and he felt that he had learnt an incredible amount of useful information and feels that it has equipped him with the knowledge to start home smoking. So really looking forward... More

Turan's relaxed style and ability to share his obvious knowledge and experience gave us a brilliant afternoon and some wonderful sausages to take home. Great fun, and very informative. I would highly recommend this to any food-lover. I'll certainly be back for the smoking and charcuterie courses,

I was treated to Turan's Food Smoking course for my birthday and although I was looking forward to it, I was amazed how much better it was than I imagined it would be. Lots of information on techniques, do's and don'ts and health & safety but delivered in such a way to make it great fun and inspirational. The day... More

Slightly considering doing smoking commercially and just getting our feelers out and trying to understand the process and the equipment. Decided best to do a course and reading up decided to book a course with Turan and encouraged some friends to join us. It was a great day! It covered some basics such as food hygiene and health and safety... More

We had a great day learning about smoking and different techniques. Turan is very informative and amasing teacher. We have already planned on using our skills for our next smoking session. At the end of the day you get to try all of the different foods we had smoked during the day and was so good. Highly recommend going.

I have wanted to do the smoking course with Turan for a couple of years but had not got round to booking. Well, I was certainly not disappointed! Turan provided a thorough, insightful and very full day (mind and stomach!) with both theory and practicle, from health and safety, to brining and curing, drying, cold smoking, hot smoking, storage, how...
