Myself and 3 friends had a fantastic day learning how to make fresh tagliatelle pasta along with 3 sauces. So easy! Tasted amazing too! Lunch was excellent and Sam is a superb hostess. We have booked another course already! Highly recommend.read more
Inspirational would be my best word to describe Sam's classes. I booked myself on 3x 1 to 1 sessions which was tailored around me and my capabilities. Each class progressed from the last with a different element to each. The classes truly surpassed my expectations while taking my cookery to the next level. Above all the we had great fun and I now regard Sam as a good friend. I would recommend anyone to Sam's classes and especially those looking to gain a good knowledge of the fundamentals in Italian cookery. I will most certainly be back for more.read more

Sam is a wonderful teacher with the most infectious bubbly personality, she goes over and beyond to ensure everyone is enjoying themselves and getting the most of the class. Having booked a pasta making class for my partners birthday, not only did we come away with the knowledge and know how to make our own pasta (and sauces) at home, but we also met some lovely people, enjoyed nibbles, a 3 course lunch and bubbles. What more could we ask for on a Sunday afternoon?
You would be mad not to book!

My husband organised Samantha to come and cook for us for my 40th birthday. What a treat it was. Samantha was very professional and friendly, she cooked the most amazing meal for us and our two boys. I don't tolerate gluten, dairy or refined sugar! Eating out is very difficult and can be stressful. This was the most amazing experience, Samantha developed a lovely menu for us and my intolerances were no bother for her. The meal was one of the most delicious I have ever had. Our boys loved it too. Would most definitely recommend you try. I look forward to attending a cooking class next. Thankyou Samantha for a wonderful evening.read more

Had a lovely evening at a friends house in December 2015, and the meal was made by Cook's day off. Food was amazing, we had canapés, followed by the best seafood bisque I have ever had. This was followed by ravioli, delicious and then salmon which melted in the mouth. I don't do puddings but the cake, can't remember what it was called, served with homemade ice cream was light and just melted away.
The company was amazing as always, but the food was superb. Thank you Samread more
