“My sincere thanks for yesterday’s cookery school. I have been on several cookery school courses around the country and indeed the world.
This is one of the best! The mixture of demonstration of skills (including fundamental ones such as filleting) and recipes, is perfect, as are the tutors, the environment (next to the working kitchen), and the school (equipment etc) itself.
As my husband put it, the slogan should be: ‘Prepare a Michelin starred 3 course meal to serve at home’.
I will definitely be back.”

For many first time students in the Northcote Cookery School, they find, that like biscuits, one just isn’t enough! Lots of students soon join us again for another course or diploma.

Don’t just take our word for it, take a look at the recent reviews on Trip Advisor.
