"The arrangement of having two days with each course tutor for different menus of food was terrific. This exposed us to different approaches and different foods and cooking methods. The course provided me with inspiration to make significant changes and further expansion of my daily cooking."

"It gave us the confidence and skills to create a little bit of food magic."

"It works so well learning from two different chefs with their individual approach to teaching and personalities. Very stimulating for the students and fun."
