Reviews from recent courses:

“Just finished the Pork Pie & Piccalilli making course that Ron held this afternoon. Absolutely loved it and feel confident making my own hand raised pork pies & tasty piccalilli. 5 Star great value for money!”

“Signed up for the pork pie making course with my wife. Both foodies but not blessed with kitchen skills. We were guided through the process by Ron from pastry to jelly. The result, we both turned out a very respectable clutch of pies to be taken home and enjoyed.”

“Great place to learn how to make bread, pizza and pies …really enjoyed it.”

“Another Pork Pie trainee who had a fantastic time. I’ll be back!”
