"I love the philosophy of the school & enjoyed talking with Robert & Shaleen. The Bread Baking class was brilliantly run by Charlotte; I would never have believed we'd get through as much as we did in three short {ish} hours & it's a real testament to her planning & teaching that I came away feeling I'd learnt so much. Can't recommend the school highly enough. Gorgeous place & lovely people. Can't wait to go back."
