My husband and I attended the French cookery course, and it was fabulous. There were just seven of us on the course, and Brian and Irina were the perfect hosts - Brian is an accomplished chef and a charismatic, capable teacher - he got us all laughing while we produced not only our own lunch but also lovely dishes to take home. The building is very tastefully decorated - the little touches where old school room items are combined with the cookery school are very clever and effective. The kitchen is very well equipped, each person has their own sink, oven, cupboards etc, and Brian knew the provenance of all the food we used, which was predominantly local and all very fresh and delicious. He shared his many years of expertise and we learnt lots of little 'tricks of the trade".
The day went by so quickly and it was a shame when we had to leave, but it was great to take home our creations, excellent well-written recipes covering the dishes of the day, and even a special bag to carry it all in.
I would recommend the Harthill Cookery School to everyone -take your pick from the great choice of courses and you won't regret it!
