Went to this day with three friends, unsure of what to expect. Seasoned cookery school is set in the most beautiful grounds of an old hall, in what seemed to have previously been a stable block. We struggled to find the car park initially but were helped by friendly groundspeople who showed us where to park. Very friendly, professional cookery "fairies" gave a warm welcome with hot and cold drinks and freshly made biscuits. From 10.15 to 4pm we watched Chef Sumayya Usmani demonstrate how to cook spices in a manner that would layer the food with exquisite taste. We cooked 6 dishes, eating some for lunch with wine, and eating more again at the end of the day and still took lots of food home with us. The other course members were fun to be with and we helped each other along the way, with plenty of fun, giggles and support where required. I loved it and would go again. Some of my friends have been to other cookery schools and felt the day was less well organised than previous courses in other schools (some recipes had instructions missing but this was alleviated by watching Chef Sumayya Usmani demonstrate the dish, and being able to amend the recipe booklet given. Also some ingredients and tools were not always in the right place at the right time which caused a small confusion). A cookery book by the chef Sumayya Usmani would have made a great item to come away with from the course. A lovely experience and highly recommended.

What a super way to spend a sunny day with Tim and the Catton estate team - foraging and feasting - smoked mackerel was delicious and we had such fun making focaccia , then to finish off with a super 3 course meal sitting with tremendous other fellow foodies was just great, will definitely return :-)

I thoroughly enjoyed the event I attended, ably led by Kim, making three delicious and inspiring courses in just a few hours! The venue is simply delightful! A big thanks for a fantastic experience and a very warm welcome.

In just 6 hours we made 6 different types of food including bacon, hot smoked mackerel and sausages. Our Chef for the day, Steve Lamb, from River Cottage, was very knowledgeable about brining and curing and answered all our questions. We were a mixed group - some already curing and some just starting - but we worked together well and all learned a great deal. The only word of advice is, like most cookery courses, we were standing for most of the day - hard work and worth it.

What a fantastic and welcoming venue. The tuition from Andy Tyrell was outstanding and the pace of the day was perfect with the correct balance of demonstration and practical. I learnt so much and since coming home, have re-made my breads twice each. I’ve been on a number of courses here. The quality of the teaching is always brilliant and the organisation begins the scenes is always faultless. I’d highly recommend the pasta and the bread courses as these in particular, I’ve used again and again and again at home. Well done seasoned and keep up the good work! Isabella
