Customer Reviews

Had a fantastic evening making Dim Sum! A unique hands on style made the experience authentic and fun! The resulting Dim Sum and sauces delicious! - Sarah Mitchell

Great fun evening. Relaxed and informal but also challenging. The results were surprisingly good and everything we did tasted awesome. Good coaching and tips from the professionals although the written menus could be adjusted here and there to improve the instructions. Bonus that we were sent the menus to keep though. - Bob Connelly

My daughter and I did the Dim Sum course and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening! Delicious food and the chefs are wonderful. - Nicole Meyer

Was a fantastic experience! Hands-on, friendly presenters/trainers/chefs - never felt ill at ease and now know SO much more about Dim Sum! - Terry Trinder-Smith

Fabulous hands on cooking experience. Lovely environment, with friendly chefs and a well organised and equipped kitchen. Great step by step recipes to follow with everyone cooking a different dish around the same theme. Guidance and hands on demos during the cooking process. Opportunity to collectively share and sample what everyone has cooked. Recipes sent out promptly after the course. I would definitely recommend it and go again. - Bal McDowall
