'I’d recommend the School of Artisan Food as an excellent learning experience. Emmanuel Hadjiandreou was a first-rate tutor who was extremely generous with his knowledge. He was highly attentive and answered every question with detailed and useful answers. The facilities in the school are excellent and the team made you feel welcomed and well looked after. In just two days my baking has accelerated and I’m enthused to keep learning and practicing.'

'A very informative and enjoyable 2 days with excellent tuition from Emmanuel Hadjiandreou.  Plenty of practice to embed the principles, and lots of fantastic bread to take home (my neighbours were all pleased with their samples too!).'
