“Cook, curry & comedy night”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

Great night was had with my work mates at Tennents for the cook curry and comedy night with Chef Michael Kilkie. The kitchen set up is fantastic and the demo part of the session was well explained. Lots of opportunity for chat over some booze too which is always nice! Great value too with taxi and comedy clubventeance included. Highly recommended for something different!

“Winter Warmers on a cold December day”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

Spent a very enjoyable day at the cook school. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and the tuition second to none. (I have been to other cook schools and this was the best). Sampled some of the cooking during the day and had sufficient to bring home for dinner for two - that's how generous the portions were. I would certainly recommend the academy, Michael Kilkie and his staff.

“Hidden Gem!”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

I along with almost 50 workmates took advantage of the private bar for our Christmas Night out last week. For a bargain compared to other Christmas venues we dodged the festive queuing, received top bar service, belted out Karaoke, struggled to finish an outstanding buffet and enjoyed attentive service throughout. Our price also included taxi's and entry to the Corinthian later on, however everyone has raved about what a great night they had and wished that we had just stayed at the brewery!!!

Another delight was the bar prices and vast selection of export Tennent's beers not available elsewhere in Glasgow.

Looking for an excuse to return.

“Steak night”
Reviewed December 9, 2013 via mobile

We had a great time at the Saturday Night is Steak Night. The chef who lead the course was really knowledgable & professional. It was great to cook in a professional kitchen & learn so many tips & tricks about cooking. The end result was delicious, as was the complimentary beer & wine! Looking forward to going back for another one of their courses :)

Hi there Margaret,

Thanks very much for taking the time to leave a review of your recent experience with us at the Tennent's Training Academy. The chef was delighted to hear your comments and as always, enjoyed the class very much himself.

I hope you have a go at recreating the dish at home and that the hints and tips you have learnt will work wonders for you.

“Cupcake and Cocktail Delight”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

Was given a gift of the Cupcake and Cocktail day for my birthday. Took a friend and had a great time. Our teacher for the day was Lesley who was very friendly, chatted away with us and made us feel very relaxed. As it was a small class (4 of us), we had one-to-one tuition which was good. Really enjoyed the cupcake decorating experience and discovered how easy it was. Scott who was our cocktail barman knew everything about every type of alcohol, cocktails and mixes. He explained everything in lay-man terms which was excellent - great job Scott. We just loved the cocktails he made for us and loved drinking them even more! A couple of points I would like to raise is that I feel we should have been provided with appropriate cake bags to carry our box of cupcakes home in. We had to ask for a bin bag to take them home as we travelled in by train. The other point is that we were offered to purchase the aprons as a momento of the day and my friend and I decided we would. Unfortunately what we were offered were not new ones but the ones we had worn for the class and I'm no doubt had been used on many occasions previously. At £14.99 a pop I think new ones should have been offered and not previously used ones. Not so good!!

Hi there Barbara,

Thanks for taking the time to review our Cupcakes & Cocktails class here at the academy. I'm very glad to hear you and your friend enjoyed the class and learnt lots from both Lesley and Scott.

We welcome all feedback so I shall pass your comments on to Lesley and Scott so that these can be taken into account and we can continue to improve our classes. During our Cupcakes & Cocktails class we always try to provide a 'Designer Cupcake presentation box' for your creations to be taken home to show off to friends and family, apologies that these were not available on your recent visit. For future classes we will ensure that we have plenty aprons available to purchase for customers.

Thank you again for your feedback and we hope to welcome you both to the academy again very soon,

Laura.
