    "I've done several courses here and they have all been excellent. Two were week long and very informative, fun and interesting. On the week courses you get a dupifferent chef tutor every day which keeps it fresh and fun. All the tutors are very good at teaching their craft and taking you through things step by step. You get to eat what you have made at lunch and take home everything else at the end of the day. "

    "I've also done several day courses, macaroons, sauces etc. These are just as much fun and well,worth doing. "

    "Top tip; wear a properly comfortable pair of shoes. It is a long day on your feet."

    "Just come back from my third 2 day course and it didn't disappoint. There are cookery schools nearer where I live but I'd be concerned that other courses wouldn't live up to Ashburton. The tutors are all experienced chefs but, more importantly, they can teach. The facilities are excellent with state of the art equipment and the ingredients are quality products, mainly local. It's amazing how many dishes can be made in the 2 days when there is no weighing and measuring as everything is prepped unless it involves learning a skill such as boning or filleting. No washing up either as there is a kitchen assistant who will do all that and return utensils to the workstation allowing students to concentrate on producing great food. Everyone is very friendly, including the admin staff and those who look after the bed and breakfast accommodation which is also recommended. I hope to be back again."

    "I did a half day knife skills course here. I found the tuition and facilities to be excellent. The course was really helpful and well put together. We got to keep the food that we prepared, which was delicious. It also made it great value. "

    "Couldn't fault any aspect of the week. The staff at the accommodation were amazing. All the food we cooked with was the best quality and very local. The meals turned out amazing, just like the chefs. I couldn't believe how hands-on the lessons were. Even when the chefs were demonstrating, they gave us a lot of information about what and why they were doing certain things. The week was one of the best experiences of my life. I will always remember the week with fond memories. I would like to thank everyone involved in organizing the week. I can't wait to come back. At the moment, I am looking forward to recreating all the new menus I now have under my belt. Thank you all very much!"
