“A Brilliant Day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

This is so well run. From the moment you start you are taught so many tips and tricks. I went for the Blanc Vite course which helps you prepare fresh, fast and seasonal food while keeping an eye on the nutritional apsects. The course changes with seasons as one of the philosophies of Le Manoir is to use fresh vegetables & fruit at its best. Marcus Pepper was our tutor and we could not have asked for better. I can't wait to return to learn something else.

“What a great way to learn!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

I attended the patisserie course and it was the most fun I've ever had whilst learning something new! Marcus is a great tutor and he and the kitchen 'angels' who weigh and measure everything ready to use plus wash everything up and prepare lunch didn't stop all day (not even during lunch - the students ate and drank whilst demonstrations took place and we then ate the results!) I learned lots of hints and tips as well as the new recipes (which I've already used again) and still can't believe that what came home with me was all my own work. It looked and tasted so good! Would love to do the chocolate course....

“A most wonderful day.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

I attended the Spring Dinner Party course last Saturday and I have to say that this was an absolutely fantastic day. I learned so much, ate far too much and came away with incredibly happy memories. The tips and techniques taught to you are invaluable, the tutor -Marcus Pepper- was brilliant; generous, funny, top class. I Highly recommend this to anyone with am interest in cooking.

“A Wonderful Treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

Can't say enough about my cookery day, 10th March. It was helpful, inspirational, full of information about nutrition and plenty of tips to serve up wonderful recipes. Mikey and the team were so thoughtful, they made the day exceptional! Raymond Blanc popping in to share his obvious passion for food made the day. This was a 60th birthday treat from my husband, it was the best
