    White Pepper is in a lovely location and setting. The kitchen is light, clean and well equipped; staff friendly, professional and extremely good at what they do and an inspiration to young and not so young alike. White Pepper has my vote.

    Cambridge Cokkery School is an amazing opportunity for people to get together, expand their culinary horizons and put a smile on their lips. The best money I have ever spent.

    White Pepper Cookery School were outstanding in making sure I understood exactly how and why I was doing each stage of the class. The 3 bird roast, from plucking to drawing to preparing, was brilliant.

    The Vegetarian Cookery School offers imaginative and creative courses for people who don’t want to cook meat or fish. People travel for miles to attend its courses! The staff are wonderful and the school offers a genuinely diverse range of culinary styles.

  10. Kate Pryce says:

    White Pepper Cookery Schhol runs some fantastic courses & also had a series of great kids cookery camp days in the summer to inspire younger cooks. I was very impressed by these and the professional approach to teaching the kids. My 6yr old son would have gone every day if he could have and has since used his new found skills at home too!

  11. Caroline Greaves says:

    Deborah Durrant – Deliciously Raw. Fantastic lady, great cookery sessions. I’ve been on two courses and Debs never stopped creating exciting recipes. Changed my eating habits for life. Very inspiring!

    White Pepper Cookery School is in a fabulous location, set in the middle of a farm. It has an excellent range of courses and a warmly professional yet friendly approach to its students. A treat and a joy for food lovers of all ages.

  14. Lorraine Holmes says:

    Extremely helpful and accommodating staff and a wide range of courses – something for everyone at The White Pepper Cookery School!

  15. Jeff Lightfoot says:

    I’ve read the previous comments and can only say that none of you must have experienced BLACKHEATH COOKS yet. Joy and her team are simply amazing, catering for very young children, teens and us older students of good food. Their range of classes is outstanding; from knife skills and basic bread making through to sophisticated dinner party recipes, via a comprehensive range of Indian, Japanese & Thai classes; not forgetting specialist classes for chocolate making and theme menus. Additionally, the experience that everyone gets during a class at BLACKHEATH COOKS is simply the best and ensures that you will return time and again. Every teaching experience should be this good.

  16. Tracy says:

    The Cambridge Cookery school is exceptional. Beautiful kitchen and fab equipment. The cookery courses are so varied and well thought out and I would rate them alongside Le Manoir. They are great fun yet professional and you can’t help but come away feeling inspired. The recipes covered on the course now regularly appear on our menu at home. I can’t wait to go on the next one!

  17. Yvette Frost says:

    Deborah from Deliciously Raw has opened my taste buds to sensations I could never imagine. Her recipes and classes are truly inspirational.

  18. Becky Wright says:

    I want to propose Deborah Durrant Deliciously Raw. Her cooking is literally life saving, it can help change the way you eat and your relationship to food.

    Hope she wins


  19. Alan Lee says:

    Personally I haven’t been to the cookery school yet, but I first got to know Deborah and Deliciously Raw from Bristol Vegfest 2012 – she’s doing a cookery demo showing people how to make a raw chocolate cheesecake. And without the shadow of a doubt it’s the BEST cake I’ve ever tasted! That wonderful creation of Deborah will live long in my memory 🙂 And I really like Deborah’s passion, enthusiasm, creativitiy and friendliness. I’m really anxious to go to one of her cookery classes some time!
