My children purchased the class for me for my birthday, and to be honest I was slightly apprehensive about the event as I am not the normal cook of the household.

I had no reason to be concerned, it was the best fun ever. I got to do some real cooking, learnt loads of new things and met some really nice people.

The chef was great, and the instructions easy to follow. I definitely want to attend another event.

Dee Bryan Jul 2023


The venue was very welcoming and clean, the whole ambience was a feel good vibe. The Teacher was excellent, first class.
The instructions were clear and the demonstration was easy to follow. Learned to make a pasta dish desert and basic knowledge about getting the best out of your ingredients.
Will recommend this class to friends and will re visit.
Thank you for the lovely experience.

Enzo was absolutely great! He was really fun and passionate about the cooking.

The workstation set-up was great. The environment was clean and all utensils were well supplied.

We were surprised to have been served wine and make a 3 course meal, we were not expecting this.

The teaching assistants were also great!

The only complaints were - one teaching assistant added salt to our our cooking without our permission and made it too salty. The other niggle was that the booking said gnocchi, risotto or pasta, we assumed we would have the option of which dish we wanted to cook when in reality we all made the same dish set by the company.

Overall we had a fab evening wining, cooking and dining and the money was well worth it. We will definitely be returning to do another class.

Teacher's response

Thank you so much for your lovely review! We are delighted to see that you had a great time. The menu that will be covered in the class (gnocchi, pasta, risotto) is stated when you pick your class date. We would love to see you back for another class soon, Ax

The food was excellent and it was very interesting the learn how to make pasta, tiramisu, and bruschetta. The team was also very friendly and helpful. My only suggestion would be to go slightly slower when explaining the demonstration as it felt very fast at times.

It was a great experience and thoroughly enjoyed it. I especially appreciated being taught how to make pasta the "quick" way which makes it more practical to take away and apply at home.

Excellent class! All members of staff very helpful and delicious food Would Definitely try another class and recommend to others!

I had a fantastic time at the Pasta/Italian cooking school and learned loads! The school itself is superbly equipped and the dishes and ingredients had clearly been picked for things you can recreate at home.

Richard the teacher was extremely knowledgeable and there’s clearly a lot to cover in a short space of time so he speaks very quickly making it difficult to keep up if you’re a beginner but other staff were available to ask when it came to our turn to cook.

I definitely think this course was good value for money, the drinks were bottomless and tasty and I have picked up plenty of new techniques.

Thank you very much for a fab evening, I hope to do another one soon!
