Testimonials

The workshop was absolutely fantastic. It was extremely well-organised and the Spanish chef and the teacher ensured that pupils were interested an engaged throughout the workshop. Their use of Spanish was pitched perfectly for our Year 11 pupils and they loved that the workshop was hands-on. The cultural component and references to the rich diversity of Spanish gastronomy was presented in a knowledgeable and fun way. And the icing on the cake was that they got to eat what they created later. I have also received excellent feedback from other teachers and it was overall an enriching and motivational experience. Highly recommended.

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.

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.
