It was so lovely to spend time with both you and Clive again in your beautiful home. You are so much fun, it is pure theatre watching you cook such delicious food....Christy thoroughly enjoyed the day too and has taken away new ideas and lovely memories.

I thoroughly enjoyed the day. It exceeded my already high expectations. I will heartily recommend it to friends. I am sure I will see you on another course.
Liz, Saturday, 24 February 2018

Oh I had such a fab time, thank you. The food was out of this world and although it might take a bit of practice I am going to have a go at making everything (though not on the same day!!). I will definitely be coming back. I'd like to do a Christmas one.......I learnt so much about prep and storing - I will definitely be changing my habits and plan ahead......thanks for a lovely day, it was fab to meet Clive and Rosie too!
Clare, Saturday, 24 February 2018

Thank you so much we had a super day. Now we are fired with new ideas and tips to incorporate into our cooking. We will certainly return for another session, it was worth the journey from north to south. Everyone was so friendly, it was great fun and very informative. My next plan is to turn Phil (my husband) into a Clive. What a lovely man!! Thank you both for the whole experience.
Margaret Evans, Saturday, 24 February 2018

Many thanks to you and Clive for the wonderful day we had on Saturday. The course was every bit as enjoyable as I remembered, talking on the way home, we agreed that it will probably be around November when we join you again hoping for inspirations for Christmas.
Margaret Hughes, Saturday, 24 February 2018

I thoroughly enjoyed the day Kate. we were so fortunate to be part of a small and friendly group. Delicious food and an earthquake too - how on earth did you organise this?!! Three Cliffs will always remind me of the wonderful time I had at Cefn Bryn Cottage. I had success with your rosemary jus last night and we will be having the courgette flan this evening.
Glenda, Saturday, 17 February 2018

Jacqui and I would like to thank you both for an unbelievable experience. We have been inspired immensely by your enthusiasm and I fully intend trying out your full menu. (lucky for Jacqui) Also, after falling in love with Rosie, I'm trying really hard to convince Jacqui to get another lab. We will be definitely recommending our experience with my friends and colleagues....

....what an amazing day we had, incredibly delicious food (as always), good company and lots of laughter. Definitely a recipe for success! Thank you so much. Will definitely see you again.....
Eileen, Tuesday, 12 December 2017

It was a super day, I loved it all: both you and all the recipes were amazing and what wonderful surroundings! I really hope to be able to do it again. We are having the aubergine crumble with rosemary gravy for lunch today.
Judith, Tuesday, 12 December 2017

I came away full of enthusiasm. Will have to do some proper cooking now! Still don't know how you do it!
