Fabulous day out

Fabulous day out. Excellent teacher and great food. The group was a great size and mix of people and extremely well run. Only issue was standing for 4 hours until we had a break and that could be an issue in some cases. Already looking at other courses.

Great fun & Food.

I participated on the Weber Essentials course on Sunday 23rd of April. It was a fun day and really interesting to have James talking us through the processes and the results spoke for themselves with clean plates all round, I hadn’t expected quite so much delicious food and it was brilliant. I’ll definitely be trying out some of the recipes and tips from James.

Five Star Tapas & Prosecco Cooking Class

Celebrated with friends for my Mum's 60th and had a brilliant time learning new skills and new recipes. Beautiful setting and great recipes that feel achievable to remember and recreate at home. Autumn, James and Pippa were super friendly and helpful in organising and recommending other local places to try out. Super fun, lots of laughs and a great way to spend an evening! Would highly recommend and hope to be back soon.

Great afternoon!

Such a lovely afternoon learning how to make macarons which is something I’d wanted to do for ages! This is the third course I have done at Kent Cookery School and it never disappoints. James makes learning fun and gives clear, easy to follow instruction. Hoping to book another course soon!

Learnt to make PROPER pizza!

Such a great cookery lesson - excellent staff, well laid out amenities, friendly and supportive chef. Best of all, I've learned where I've been going wrong and hopefully my wood-fired oven pizzas will now be edible - and also fun to make!
