Never been successful at baking macaroons and now I understand why! This half day course was really enjoyable and enlightening. Michael explained everything so well and his two assistants were really helpful and lovely. He demonstrated the mixing and piping and baking of 4 different macaron flavours and then we chose one the flavours to make ourselves - and it... More

I attended the intermediate bread making course and I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone with an interest in baking. Michael is a really good teacher, and he is ably assisted by Sonia and Zoe. All three are on hand to give help, advice and reassurance where necessary. Everything about the day was top class. I am already looking to... More

A fabulous day that lived up to the Northcote brand from the initial welcome through to our farewell. Michael was a great tutor and Sonia & Zoe superstars who helped throughout the day getting things prepared, checking we were ok and just generally being there for to answer questions and give advice. Highly recommended.

A visit to Northcote Cookery School is entertaining, instructive and good/bad (take your pick!) for the waistline. "Northcote at Home" was this day's theme and, by golly, it was fantastic. The classroom itself is equipped with all the latest and best that one could possibly hope for; Michael's instruction was pitched at a level at which all could understand and... More

This one-day course was a birthday gift from dear friends, one of whom joined me for the day. It was an outstanding experience in every respect. Michael Vanheste is not only a most accomplished chef in his own right, but also a very gifted teacher able to enthuse and inspire. I learned an incredible amount during the day: technical skills,...

I could find nothing to fault and everything to praise about the Northcote At Home course. Michael was a superb teacher who put everyone at their ease while passing on many useful skills and tips. His assistants were delightful and helpful. The atmosphere was ideal for learning without undue pressure. The whole experience was highly professional with the best ingredients... More

Well I went there for a master class demonstration, the staff were so helpful it was untrue. As for the class it was done by three chiefs I have a very high respect for, and the food was just "pure" genius and excellently presented in their demonstrations. Need I say more about the establishment and the staff.

As my husband was celebrating a significant birthday, I rounded off our two-night stay in the hotel with the 'Taste of Lancashire' cookery course for him. He thoroughly enjoyed it and found the tutor, Michael, to be an excellent teacher with the class size of 8 max. just right for everyone to receive the attention and help that they needed.... More

I have been 3 times on different courses and cannot fault it, extremely well organized, excellent tuition, a very popular cookery school, you must book early to get on the courses, I had to change a course due to other commitments and it wasn't a problem and they were very accomadating, highly recommended!!!
