This was a lot of fun, we did the ‘Hell’s Kitchen”. You get lots of ingredients on a table, put in groups then given around 40 minutes to cook something up using them! Not easy and worst of all you then eat what you’ve concocted-...More

Host seemed to be on a power trip. Not that organised. Took too long. Didn't really know how to engage group. Style would be ok with a class of 18 year old apprentices.

Social Cooking was a spontaneous decision for a Saturday night out, but I was highly impressed. We made fish tortellini pasta from scratch (which was quite exciting - I've never made pasta before!) and it turned out fantastic. The chef was hilarious and the instructions...More
