I have just returned from the 'Naughty but Nice' class. The school is wonderful as is the equipment but I felt the day could have been better organised. For starters there were 3 to a 2-person work station which made things more time consuming. Secondly, you are constantly made to do your own washing up which to me should be... More

Bettys' Cookery School is expensive but good value. They have a very well organised operation, low student numbers and a wide range of courses. I recommend this highly and there are courses suitable for total beginners and for experienced home cooks. A great day and ideas that will change your cooking for the better. I have been on 3 courses... More

My husband and I did the new 'Fabulous Fish' course last weekend, led by tutors Andy and Will, and hosted by Lisa. It was a superb day. Fuelled by a warm greeting, croissants and freshly brewed coffee from our arrival at 8.20 a.m., we chopped, sliced, filleted, cured, reduced, toasted and stuffed our way through to 5.30 and came home...

My 12 year old daughter recently attended a Young Chef Pasta Making cookery course and loved it! She was a little nervous at the thought of going on her own and thought everyone else there would be paired up with friends. She needn't have worried - there was a mix of girls and boys, some with friends, others without, but... More

After dreaming about it for years, I was given a cookery course at Bettys as a present. It was even better then I expected. I did a continental bread making course, which was splendid. The course was wel run by experienced and friendly people. I learned a lot and also enjoyed myself hugely. The treats in the breaks were, obviously,... More

I was treated to a Italian Vegetarian cookery course (one day) as a birthday treat yesterday. We've been looking forward to it for months, but unfortunately it was a bit of a let down. The school itself and the facilities are absolutely top notch and the tutors are top of their field, but whoever designed the course clearly wasn't vegetarian.... More

I have been on several cookery courses at Betty's cookery school and yet again this Wednesday, had a superb day. Despite running late because of traffic I was given a warm welcome and a mug of coffee. Easily slipped into the group and spent the day enjoying the therapy, company and brilliant demonstration and little tips and techniques shared by... More
