Other Courses

I just wanted to say that Harry had a fabulous week with you, thank you so much. It's been about so much more than getting his Gold D of E. He now really loves cooking and can't wait to cook for us and indeed himself. Thank you for giving him a head start for uni and for igniting what we hope is the very beginning of his love affair with good food. I have a younger son, Charlie, who will also be coming your way soon! Best wishes,
Sarah
