Yet another fabulous culinary day out. All the recipes had an Italian theme. The highlight being the awesome Gianduja cake. Michael Vanheste is the consummate tutor. The excellent facilities and customer care make a days tuition an absolute delight. Accompanied by a stunning lunch in the restaurant. What more do you want? Can thoroughly and wholeheartedly recommend.

It was just excellent! I will be there again. A very relaxed learning experience-with the food to take home as well! Refreshments non-stop and a superb lunch in the restaurant as well.

I am posting this late as I have been away, but after participating a second time at the Cookery School, I can honestly say it is superb. I have been on many well known courses over the past two/three years and Northcote is definitley one of my favourite two. The day is both professional but relaxed and fun. The tutor Michael is an engaging individual, who has a wealth of knowledge and has great way of giving you the confidence to try things you previously thought were beyond your capabilities. The cookery school has been fitted out with the latest gadgets/technology and everything has been designed to ensure ease of use. The demonstrations are clear and the quality of the food is of the highest standard. After enjoying a light delicious breakfast in the morning, the icing on the cake is then being treated and served a fabulous two course lunch (incl. a glass of wine) in the Michelin star restaurant by the wonderful staff! What another great day, I can't wait to book on the next one

Well it sounds like you had a great day!

We are so proud of the Cookery School and the feedback that it has received. We spent as a team a long time planning the courses and the equipment that we wanted to ensure that every need would be taken care of for our guests.

I look forward to welcoming you back to your next Cookery Course.

Many thanks

I was bought a 1 day course by my wife for my 40th Birthday and what an amazing day! I attended the 'Mid Summer Dinner Party' course with Nigel Haworth and the Cookery School Tutor, Michael Vanheste. The experience was fantastic and I learnt to use techniques and ingredients that I would probably not have attempted in a domestic environment - however, now I can't wait to have a go and show off for family and friends. The facilities are amazing and the level of instruction is great - clear demonstrations and then time and support to recreate the dishes at your own workstation. The Northcote staff looked after us brilliantly and the day included a welcome breakfast, lunch with the tutors, scones in the afternoon and a constant supply of fresh tea and coffee. I will definitely be booking further courses and thoroughly recommend this to anyone interested in food and furthering their cooking skills.
