“A great and good value course - you will leave with a tray of delicious food.”
Reviewed 19 October 2011

I would strongly recommend a day cookery course at the Yorkshire Wolds Cookery School. The school is located in a great setting - up on the Wolds in a converted farm buildings and it looks and feels clean and contemporary. The quality of the cookery equipment was noticeable and the fact that there are people to wash up for you a luxury. I went on the Yorkshire Food cookery day and it was such a stress-free way to learn new receipes and new techniques - the food I took home was just delicious and fed my family for days. The teaching environment worked well and it was good to learn about local produce. The other attendees were of all ages, mixed male and female and ranged from very good chefs to individuals like me who wanted to just enjoy themselves. The day gave me bit of ' time out' when I could switch off from work and family life. I am not a 'foodie' person but I left feeling more confident, knowing receipes that I could use at home but just as importantly feeling good having had a great day with new people in a lovely Wolds environment. Go and have some fun - and it is good value.

“Best Birthday Gift Ever!”
Reviewed 28 September 2011

My mum and I attended the 'Yorkshire Born and Bred' day on Saturday 27th August for my birthday treat! I had to put fingers to the keyboard to share what a truly amazing
experience it was. We thoroughly enjoyed the day and are recommending to everyone we meet! Ali made us feel very much at home, her demonstrations were easy to follow and the staff were very friendly and did an excellent job of looking after us. Thank you for the experience.

“The perfect evening for food and wine lovers"”
Reviewed 22 July 2011

We visited the school for a fine wine and fine dining experience , we tried various wines to complement a fabulous meal cooked by Ali , each wine was explained and discussed with Peter Fawcett who was very amusing and full of interesting advice about wines. Our meal surpassed our expectations, using excellent local ingredients. overall a very enjoyable evening and cannot wait to do it again.

“Fantastic cooking experience”
Reviewed 12 July 2011

I did the Yorkshire Born and Bred course back February this year. I normally tend to avoid spending time in the kitchen at home, probably as I dont know quite what I am doing, but this course gave me so much confidence to try things I previously would not have had the guts to do, Toad in the Hole, Bread and Butter Pudding, Yorkshire Curd Cheesecake were just a few of the 8 dishes I prepared and took home for my husband to enjoy! Well worth a visit and a great idea for a gift!
