My eight year old son had a fantastic time learning to cook flatbread, chicken Kiev, rosti and chocolate fondant pud. James and Autumn made it so much fun for us both. No more cooking for Mummy! Yippee.

What an amazing day. James, our chef, was patient, informative and very supportive throughout the day. We crammed so much in and got so much from it. A wonderful day and I would recommend this to anyone who has a passion for cooking.
