Testimonials

.

The workshop was absolutely fantastic – the boys enjoyed it so much and I have had lots of positive comments from teachers so they are still talking about it! The chefs were amazing – so friendly and organised, very easy to work with and great with the pupils. They really brought Spanish cuisine to life for our students and lots of the staff were also keen to try the recipes provided.

Spanish Chef and assistant seemed really nice, understanding and gave great demonstrations of their cooking. I also liked that we were given books, so we could follow the class and take the recipes home.

At the end of the day, it was a fantastic opportunity for the girls to improve their vocabulary and their levels of comprehension of the Spanish language. Moreover, now all the girls are able to cook fantastic Spanish recipes to try with their family and friends.

“Overall it was an extremely good experience!

Everything else was fantastic – the resources, the information packs and the planning, which had evidently gone into it, were all of an exceptional standard.”
