What people say

It was lovely to meet you. I had a brilliant day. A very nice group of people. I'm planning to cook most of the menu you cooked on Saturday in a couple of weeks time. I won't try to cook everything in the one day though. Thanks for everything.

Hi Kate , Oh my goodness we are just all coming down to earth ! What an amazing day ! We all absolutely loved it , and can’t wait for the next one ... .. honestly I can see us doing this on a regular basis ! I’m even considering moving to Penmaen ! ( one can dream !) ....... I can’t wait to write a review and also share our experience on my social media .. I have over 4K followers on Instagram , all foodies , mostly from Swansea / Cardiff and West . The whole day was such a wonderful escape from the current climate . Your home is just breathtaking . Your wonderful hospitality and the amazing ‘gift’ you are , really did lift us all ! So funny that the boys want to join us too for the next one ! I thought our group was a lovely mix with the jewel in the crown being you and not forgetting the wonderful Clive ! He was a cross between a Phillips Whirlpool and an Alexa ! If they start selling Clives on Amazon , there’s 4 orders already in waiting ! We are all in awe of the perfect man ! What a great team you are .. Your warmth , passion for food and humour really did make the day so special ! I even wanted to buy the book again ! Haha

Thank you so much Kate for welcoming me into your beautiful home for your INCREDIBLE cookery course. The food and company was first class. Can't wait to get cooking!
Polly, Saturday, 4 September 2021

Kate I had the absolute best time. Thank you so much. I look forward to attending another class very soon but in the meantime I will have fun buying amazing new cooking equipment in Peppercorn to make the gorgeous recipes from your book. Thank you.

It sure hits the taste buds. I love the little drawings that head each section. Your recipe instructions and the stories behind them, you make interesting and fun!

Thank you so much for yesterday I had an absolute ball, hope this is an indication of how much I enjoyed the day. The Perfect Recipe for an Amazing Dinner Party Cooking Experience! Kate you have definitely all the right ingredients of a perfect host, passion, dedication, commitment not to mention your outstanding skills, this drizzled with your unique humour was a perfect recipe for a very special day of cooking know how and making new friends and all this was washed down with fun and laughter. A BIG shout out to Clive who very discretely made the used pots pans and dishes disappear with the dexterity of a professional magician. Ryan (my son) Julian (my brother) also had the best day and we are all looking to return at some point. Love Cath x

Kate thank you for such a lovely day. Hopefully you have now had your bath and glass of bubbly....
Ann, Friday, 13 March 2020

Kate, what a fabulous day. you were amazing, especially in front of that film crew...I'm exhausted, so you must be totally pooped. And, well what a gem Clive is, it's a shame we can't clone him. Every lady needs a Clive. I really hope you are now sipping champagne and having you or feet massaged, you certainly deserve it. Big thank you again.
Ceri, Friday, 13 March 2020

It was a lovely day, which we will certainly recommend, and hope to repeat ourselves in due course. Great to share it with you, Clive, Rosie and our fellow guinea-pigs, all in such beautiful surroundings. No - Rod didn't mind the teasing! (He's used to it at home!!) Many thanks, and hugs,
Sue , Saturday, 22 February 2020

Hi Kate Thank you for a wonderful day. The food, company, view and everything was fantastic. Looking forward to coming back.
Miriam, Saturday, 18 January 2020

Hi Kate, I just wanted to say a very big “thank you” for a fabulous day in your gorgeous home and kitchen! Boy did you work hard?! I hope you enjoyed your well deserved drinks this evening and I look forward to cooking some of the delicious recipes you used today. Thanks again,
Bev, Saturday, 18 January 2020

Hi Kate, I’m still buzzing after a brilliant day yesterday. You both made it really enjoyable thanks with a great welcome, informal atmosphere and humour in such a lovely home and location – and then the minor item of the cooking. You packed loads into a really nicely thought out programme – what a lovely day. So now, as well as a shopping trip to Llandeilo, I’ve got all these notes to sort through and store away. I really value these and be sure I’ll be making use of them.
