I enjoyed your classes and meeting you. The puff pastry today was superb – my husband thought it was the best ever ! Thank you for passing on great cooking tips which I will now be using for the rest of my life.
I wish you all the best.

Having had a hectic career in TV, I took to the kitchen late in life. But I lacked confidence. You have changed all that! I have so enjoyed my weekly class with you, shopping for my ingredients, doing the practical stuff in a group, learning new techniques, and coming home with a completely new and inspired dish for dinner! The whole experience has been a pleasure, and such fun, and has now added truly delicious, tested and trusted recipes to my repertoire. Your relaxed and passionate teaching methods made the class so enjoyable. Thank you! I look forward to my next course.

Before joining Lisa’s beginners course at the HGSI everyone knew my motto was “don’t cook, wont cook” after 10 years of marriage and never providing my husband with a meal and with a real fear of the kitchen a cookery course was never on my to do list. However, when faced with an ultimatum of not having my house renovated unless I knew how to cook I reluctantly signed up for the course. Well,…what can I say, Lisa instilled in me a real love for cooking that I never knew I had and no other person has managed to find. I signed up for the next course as soon as the dates were available and am looking forward to taking my third course with Lisa in June. I am also very excited for my new kitchen and I have found out that food really is the way to a man’s heart !! Thank you Lisa I can’t thank you enough and my husband is even more grateful 🙂

The Stews & Casseroles course was the second course of Lisa’s that I have attended. Throughout it was fun and, as on the previous course, not only were the recipes fantastic, but Lisa gives out so many useful tips for the food preparation as well as the cooking. All the recipes have gone down very well with my family and I look forward to making them again, many times.

Just wanted to thank you for an absolutely lovely day yesterday. I enjoyed it so much. Cooking really is my hobby – and to get the opportunity to learn from someone as yourself is a gift.

Just a short note to thank you for showing me how to make sushi on Sunday morning.
I really enjoyed the lesson and cannot wait to get down to the shops and buy my ingredients – and getting started.

I had previously taken an NVQ in Chef’s skills and was unsure what to expect but I have thoroughly enjoyed Lisa’s class because:
She demonstrates the cooking techniques in a way that is clear and easy to follow for students regardless of their experience . She has a friendly, inclusive style of teaching that makes ALL of the class feel involved. She shares tips for how to achieve impressive presentation and to avoid pitfalls
Her recipes are varied and, most importantly, taste and look great!
