"Fantastic day really enjoyed it, a sense of pride in my baking. Thank you Emmanuel!"

''A terrific course for the complete beginner or for someone who needed reassuring. Emmanuel made everyone feel welcome and made everything look very easy. And once we got started he proved it really was easy. Everything was extremely well organised and everything explained really well. I thoroughly enjoyed myself.''

My review is really in 2 parts. 1 The actual course which was splendid. The tuition was first class. I have not yet had any time to show actual improvement in my baking but I feel more confident. The day was fun and informative I was made to feel relaxed. We were provided with all the equipment we needed and the facilities were very good. One suggestion is to use rice paper to label our dough. We were given an excellent lunch. All the staff were friendly and we were made to feel welcome. Thank you. 2 The site. The morning was dark and foggy, once you turn into the property you rely on very subtle tasteful signage that is very difficult to read, I wonder how many people had to do U turns. The signage is not designed to be useful. The car park and its' drive is muddy and more importantly there is no disabled car parking space or if there is one I could not find it (signage) Thank you for a lovely day
