'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.
