“I spent this weekend on a cookery course by chef Lee Watson, author of the brilliant ‘Peace and Parsnips’. Each day we cooked up a huge array of different dishes that were INCREDIBLE!!!!

 I’ve done a few cookery courses before but this was in a league of its own! The whole experience was a joy from start to finish. Lee, Jane and their lovely team put a huge amount of thought and effort into ensuring it was relaxed and fun but really informative too.

Honestly, I cannot recommend their courses enough!”  Tanya
