“Feeling that I was adequate, if a rather repetitive cook, I enrolled on a cookery course with Manor Farm cookery course. This was by far one of my best decisions, it gave me the confidence to try new and exciting dishes along with some very useful tips on old favourites. The chefs, Robert and Diana, made me feel so comfortable and welcomed. I have joined again this year for more ideas and fun.” AB

“I absolutely love this cookery school. We have attended three times – brilliant. Learnt so much and it is a lovely atmosphere, too. Highly recommend.” LH

“The day we had at your school lives on in the memory!” John CR
