The courses
Emily’s courses run in the cookery school where you each have your own worktop space and utensils, two induction hobs and access to an oven / sinks. Emily has eight years experience of teaching and demonstrates all the stages of the dishes she makes whilst you make yours. ( Any support can be given.)

One day and half day courses:
The dishes you make on one or half day courses are usually enough for two which you normally take-away. Occasionally Emily just demonstrates dishes but this will usually be clearly stated in the course description, and you may also take this away or eat this for lunch.

Drinks /food
Coffee, tea and other drinks are available throughout .

What to bring?
Ingredients, an apron and copies of recipes are all provided.

You just need to bring a number of your own large plastic sealable containers to take away the dish(es) you make!

What a lovely venue – such friendly hosts and the wonderful relaxed environment. And now I feel confident to make my own bread. (Kate, Breadmaking)

I joined Emily’s East of Europe course and it was fantastic (she is also fantastic)! I met a mixture of very nice people, had fun, cooked lots of different things which I got to take home to enjoy.

Excellent instruction- relaxed, knowledgeable, approachable – exactly what I wanted. (Paul, Breadmaking)

Very enjoyable course at just the right level. Very impressed with the facilities… all the equipment and everything you needed. Staff were great, worked at the right pace, didn’t feel rushed. The course … enabled you to learn all you needed… so you could repeat the dishes at home easily. I have recommended it to others.  (Alan, East of Europe, June 2017)
