I did a 'Utility Kitchen Knife' course on 15th April 2022 and it was hands down the best run course I have been a part of. It is a fantastic studio with amazing staff. The facilities and knowledge there are excellent. The support throughout the day is amazing and I would strongly recommend booking in to anyone considering one of the many courses on offer
