What people ay about the school

Cookery course with Peter Sidwell”
5 of 5 starsReviewed 17 October 2015 NEW

Birthday present for a friend.
Went to a full day Italian cooking class.
Absolutely brilliant. Removed the inhibitions about making bread and pasta.
Relaxed unpressured atmosphere, lots of opportunity to ask questions and great tips.
Oh – and a full tea to take home.
We’ll be back!
