“Excellent. Delicious.”

Pat Hicks, ‘The Indian Experience’ cookery workshop participant (May 2015)

 David Bevan, ‘The Indian Experience’ cookery workshop participant (March 2015)

 

” Good number of people allowed for more personal tuition. My favourite part was learning to make the base mix. The tutors knowledge was excellent, very personable and helpful. At no point was I left wondering what to do. The venue was excellent – felt very homely. It was nice to eat what we’d cooked for lunch. The course content and pace were excellent.”
