  11. Matt M

    Endless ideas and new techniques. More than met my expectations of improving veggie options at work.

  12. Marlie P

    Looking to extend myself to vegetarian/cooked options from raw vegan. I can include more cooked options and i feel more confident about using new ingredients, spices, etc. Better than expected. I was able to learn more in a relaxed setting, with a small group of chefs and a considerable personal instruction from head tutor.

  13. Hubert H

    Join. It’s good fun, informal, but very informative. It’s a good training with many different recipes and different cuisines.

  14. Murray S

    Get here and be open to ideas. You will have fun and learn loads. It’s a very small and interactive learning course, very positive. A very in depth look at vegetarian cooking with accents on vegan and dietary restrictions. Informative 2 way flow of ideas with tutor and participants.

  15. Fiona R

    The week flew by and I had a great time. It was a revelation and our tutor Alex was the best.

  16. F Carter

    It really pushed me and I feel such a sense of achievement. The amount of food I have cooked is incredible and the range of recipes is amazing. I chose this course as I am looking to change my career and wanted the experience to see if it was feasible. It blew my expectations out the water! I loved it
