    Thoroughly enjoyed the course yesterday. Stefano was clear and precise and clearly showed us practically each step of way to produce the Italian dishes promised, and it tasted as good as it looked. Cant wait to do another course!

    Thank you for also taking all necessary precautions to keep us safe from this Covid-19 pandemic – felt very safe and secure.

    Great course! The chef, Stefano Imperiale, explained the steps clearly and was always on hand to help. The food was very yummy. The school is well-equipped, clean and everyone is very friendly. I can’t wait for the next course! Highly recommend!

    Great informative course. Stefano was knowledgeable, full of small tips and made everyone felt welcome. Great to be a small group so we all had as much help and encouragement as we needed. Great support staff who couldn’t do enough for you. The whole day went seamless. This is my second course and will certainly not be my last.

  4. Stephen Marshall (verified owner)

    Great fun to learn something of the basic procedures of Italian cooking. Stefano is very good at passing on the whys of techniques, and not just the hows.
