Good fun and informative. Great chef, everything supplied. Well supported and easy to ask questions. Would have liked bit more information about knives for different tasks but I have definitely improved. Shout out to the helpers who were lovely

Lucy Jun 2024


We were bought the class as a gift and we absolutely loved it. Our teacher Salvatori was exceptional, great knowledge and made the experience really enjoyable. We’ve definitely taken away some great tips on how to make good pasta.

The venue itself is a beautiful space. So nice that everything is laid out for you and the host was on top of keeping the space tidy for us without us even realising. The timings of the class is brilliant, nothing is rushed and time to sit down and enjoy dishes as they’re ready.

We’d definitely return for another class!

Jade Severyn Jun 2024


The session was well paced and we learnt some very useful tips and tricks for making sushi and gyoza. The recipes with very tasty and we were given a good amount of things to do. The staff were all very helpful and friendly, providing us with a really fun experience.

Tom Jun 2024


Would 100% recommend the cooking class. Everything was done perfectly and the chef went over everything so well and helped out at every possible point he could. The day ran smoothly and everything was fab! We had such a great day and will definitely be coming again to try other cooking classes!

Sarah Charnley May 2024


Fabulous evening
Chef Alex was informative and amusing
Would definitely recommend and am keen to do another course

Helen Jackson May 2024


We had a small class, friendly informal atmosphere.
Kitchen well equipped and all ingredients provided.
Teacher Farzana, was very knowledgeable and gave good advice throughout.
We made Kathi Rolls; Samosas; Paratha. This was the first time I had made these.
Without attending this course, I would probably never have attempted these dishes.
I learned about ingredients and techniques. The course gave me quite a lot of confidence to try more recipes in the future.

Paul Tolley Apr 2024


Booked this course for my wife’s birthday. The teacher was great, made time to speak to everyone during the lesson and explained the techniques carefully. He was a great communicator and had a sense of humour that settled people’s nerves. The venue was excellent.
The only complaint I have was the knives were not sharp enough.
I felt the class was good value for money.

Anonymised ClassBento student Apr 2024


We went to celebrate our anniversary and both of us had a brilliant time, learned a lot, and felt accomplished while eating amazing food. I would recommend this class to anyone who enjoys sushi and gyozas

Rose Killeen Mar 2024


Really enjoyed my first ever cooking class! Easy to follow and amazing results in a small class. This is such a great activity, something "different" to do and I learnt a lot from it. I'm excited to make my Korean dishes again soon!

Jenny Lewis Mar 2024


What a fantastic experience. Dan the chef and the brilliant support team made for an enjoyable and educational few hours.
Every dish was stunning and Dan taught us through every step, to help create beautiful, high end dishes.
I’ll be taking all his top tips into my own cooking at home.

Andrew Arditti Mar 2024


Excellent masterclass really enjoyed whole process from pasta making to making the meals. Learnt a lot from Salvatore who was a perfect teacher.

Our teacher was great, so was the venue. We learnt a lot but it was also really fun, and I really enjoyed getting to sit down and eat what we had made! Nothing felt rushed, it was actually really relaxing

Learned lots of clever techniques from Kevin who was full of enthusiasm and clear in his instructions. The food was delicious, everything laid out ready and hats off to Lisa and the two clearer uppers ; great job! The induction hobs tho are hopeless and need replacing with more reliable brand! That was a frustrating element to the whole experience. Thanks for a great afternoon!

Teacher's response

Hi Anne, Thanks for taking the time to write a review, I've passed you comments onto Kev who is really chuffed. We are also looking at replacement hobs! Thanks Helen

Ellie Crimes Jan 2024


Had an amazing night at the didsbury beginners class! The chef running it was so so nice (think he might be called Rick but not 100% sure!) super friendly and made it a really enjoyable experience. I have a dairy intolerance which a lot of places said they wouldn’t cater for but here it was no issue they had everything for me ready & the chef was also dairy free which meant he could give me so many hints & tips on how he cooks at home! Really couldn’t recommend enough we had the best time & will be looking into more courses in the future!

Very educational and entertaining. Wanted to learn how to use knives correctly and more quickly, bith achieved.

Andrew Corner Oct 2023


What a lovely way to spend an afternoon in a pleasant location with a chef and assistant who were both personable & fun to be around.
Everything was set up brilliantly so as after a presentation of tasks by Chef we could all attempt to recreate his dishes with generally great success!
All the delicious dishes were washed down whilst sharing a mellow Zinfandel - perfect!
Although this was a generous gift for my birthday, it’s given me food for thought for future activities on a Sunday afternoon (& even opportunity’s to reciprocate for friends).

Victoria was very friendly and informative very well explained throughout the class.
Venue was excellent
All ingredients was supplied
Pretty good value
Nice lunch provided.
Lovely to meet others with the same interests.
Would definitely recommend.
Will be back to try other classes x

Heather Duff Sep 2023


Really enjoyed the class. Victoria was a fabulous teacher who explained things simply and also gave us advice how to rectify any mistakes. All the ingredients were set out for us at our workstations and our dirty dishes and utensils were cleaned up by the two wonderful girls on the team. The day just flew by and I learnt so much! And best of all, I got to take so much cake home with me Would definitely recommend and book again.

Rob Sep 2023


The venue was amazing, as were the staff. Chef Dan was everything you'd want from a private chef. Top class. Everything was well prepared and resulted in 3 delicious courses.

I had a great time at the Knife Skills class. Jan was a great teacher and the recipes we cooked were both delicious - would highly reccommend.

Anonymised ClassBento student Sep 2023


Chef was very experienced, knowledgeable and approachable. The location was perfect, well equipped. The organisation of the evening was excellent with food all laid out. The team were very welcoming and friendly. It was a game changer in how I will now look after knives and prepare food.

Nicholas Redshaw Sep 2023


Hi.The venue was excellent and well equipped. Met friendly people there. There was a relaxed atmosphere. Rick had great skills in showing us how to cook Japanese food and I learnt alot from it. Good value for money and would love to try another class soon. Thank you

Harris Mouridis Aug 2023


Really good experience led by Salvatore who is very likeable. Learned some decent dough skills and also loved the space.

Sherron Sutton Apr 2023


What an experience from start to finish. Informative, experienced, fun chef and kitchen staff, great kitchen set up, quality ingredients, excellent menu to cook. I will definitely be back to do another class and would recommend to anyone. Can’t wait to cook the dishes I learned at home.

James Neilson Mar 2023


Really good. Friendly staff, great food.

Would recommend to anyone. Very worthwhile experience. Top stuff.

John Scott Mar 2023


It was, overall, a good experience.
Great things included the facilities, parking and access. Pleasant staff and a good cook.
The ingredients were good, although it would have been nice to try one of the less common spices that the cook said should've been in the one of the recipes.
I would go again, but I have some suggestions.

Paul Chard Feb 2023


Thoroughly enjoyed the day the teacher was most engaging and other staff very helpful all in all a lovely day thank you

Emily Doster Feb 2023


Great experience and very friendly chef, really new his stuff! The food was really delicious!

Amanda Begg Feb 2023


Excellent chopping class, warm and friendly atmosphere, great tips and advice. A great evening and would highly recommend.

Stephanie Livingstone Jan 2023


Great venue and a very informative class. I definitely feel like I've learned a new skill!

I think it's great the emphasis was on pasta-making as opposed to sauce making, and would have liked to have been able to fit more in.

Jason King Nov 2022


This was a really enjoyable experience and I learnt so much regarding pasta making. The teacher was knowledgeable and likeable and had no problems answering any questions. Harry was also helpful and made sure everything was prepped and ready for us as well as assistant wherever he could. I would certainly recommend food sorcery for anyone who wants to learn any type of cooking !

Su-Man Shardlow Sep 2022


We really enjoyed our class! Nina was very Informative and helped us through every step, imparting her knowledge on each dish and spices used. Best part was having a taster at the end of each dish before boxing them up!

Very informative and helpful, learned a lot today. Jan was really funny too. Going home very happy.

Charlotte Nuttall Jun 2022


Yan was an amazing teacher and really funny. The class felt super relaxed but we learnt a lot at the same time! We’ve got skills we’ll be taking into the kitchen at home now and the recipes were delicious - can’t wait to try and recreate them! A ingredients provided were very fresh and the equipment was spot on. Thank you!

Good clear guidance by the teacher.
Great alternatives for pescetarian or vegetarians.
Support by all staff there was fantastic too.
Loved the set up and relaxed vibe meeting new people.

Anne Postlethwaite Mar 2022


On the the French Patisierie and Desert course we made profiteroles, tart au citron and tarte au pomme. Victoria was excellent and explained everything clearly and answered our questions - she's obviously very experienced and knowledgeable and gave lots of tips. The pace was good and the time flew by. A very enjoyable day.

Audrey Tully Feb 2022


Really good class. Great teacher and although my macarons didn’t look great my kids gave them 9/10 for taste!

Keith Brierley Feb 2022


My husband bought this class as a Christmas present for me and we both thoroughly enjoyed the event and the delicious food. Jan was very careful to explain the preparation of the first two courses so we were able to replicate them and then eat them! The kitchen was well equipped and ideal to both demonstrate techniques and for class members to prepare them, with the added bonus of someone to wash up for us. It was a pleasure to meet the other attendees and it was a very pleasant event socially but also gave us our first attempt at rolling pasta and making tortolini. I might even get my pasta machine out its box in the cupboard after 15 years.!

Adam Gladwin Feb 2022


Teacher was funny, very knowledgeable and incredibly skilful. Felt like I learned a lot.

Made delicious food in a fun social atmosphere as well

Overall an absolute successs in my eyes

Emma Timmins Feb 2022


The class was very, very enjoyable and Jan was incredibly helpful and patient. All the team were very welcoming, and couldn’t do enough. They were also very happy to accommodate my gluten intolerance.
