We are thrilled to announce that we are back running face to face workshops! With strict COVID safety plans ensuring we adhere to social distancing rules, you will see some changes to the way our workshops are run, however this won’t take away from the fantastic experience of participating in our cooking workshops! Some of these include  reduced participant numbers, no sharing of ingredients or cooking equipment and participants preparing food for themselves only. Our number 1 priority is to ensure the safety of all participants.

Important – if you are showing signs of cold or flu, have travelled in the last 14 days (domestically or internationally) or have been in contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19, we are unable to let you attend the workshop. If you have booked into the course and reply yes to any of these,  please know in advance and we will refund or postpone your booking.
