The sauces course was absolutely fantastic. John was very knowledgeable & helpful, plus took lots of time to make sure we all knew what we were doing. Plenty of opportunities to ask questions and try things out. The support staff did not stop working throughout. The set up & management were well thought out, covering lots of different sauces but we also had plenty of hands on time to learn the practical side. Excellent quality ingredients and the bonus was when we got to sit down to try the sauces with some lovely food. A brilliant experience and I will definitely return for more courses in the future.

Great day cooking Spanish classics with the lovely Carolina. Class size was small and intimate so you had a lot of 1–1 teaching time. I had to rearrange a class last minute due to illness and the school was very understanding and accommodating. I’ve already booked onto the next class :)

A fantastic fun filled day of chocolate, sugar and learning. We did the full day chocolate making course as a gift to each other for our wedding anniversary. It really is a busy day of learning new skill, enjoying lots of tasty treats and getting creative under the guidance of a great team. The school is really well appointed and the full day course stretches you just enough so that you have new information and knowledge to take away and apply at home. You can be a beginner or have some basic knowledge and you will still get a lot from it. Lunch was lovely and the team made an extra effort to recognise our day. Thanks so much to Rosalind, Jon and team. Well worth a visit.

Did the french patisserie one day course and had a great time! The chef was friendly and put everyone at ease, and patiently answered any questions that arose and gave lots of handy tips and techniques. Most people were beginners and managed to accomplish some pretty tasty pastries! Really recommend it

Thank you for your review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed the class. Good if you can make the croissant and brioche a few times on your own at home so that you become familiar with the recipes and produce more good ones. They freeze beautifully!

I attended a cookery school day course on shellfish. I was surprised how small the venue was, but with seven people attending (suitably distanced) everything went very well. The chef in charge for the event (John) was absolutely first class. He was engaging and approachable which out everyone at their ease immediately. The day began with a savoury scone and coffee, and we soon moved into learning best practise for preparation of various fish and shellfish. Emphasis on buying fish and their sustainability was most helpful and interesting. The list of dishes for the day was quite daunting, but my group managed to get through them all within the expected time. Being objective, perhaps there were too many dishes for a six-hour event! However, as has been mentioned by other reviewers - do not eat anything prior to attending this course, as you have the chance to eat all of the dishes that have been prepared. This is the one of the challenging tasks of the day, albeit most delicious and enjoyable. I am considering another course as a result of my experience! Try it...you might enjoy it too.

Thank you for your review. We are very careful about sourcing of our fish and most of it comes iff day boats around Plymouth. We try to teach as much as we can in this session on preparing and cooking fish as many feel daunted by it until it is made easy for them. look forward to seeing you at Cookeru School again.
