My father and I attended the Temptingly Thai cookery course and were blown away by the day. Penny was fantastic throughout the day, we were told the schedule for the day, the dishes we would be cooking (13 in total) and what the aims of the course were. Having developed a taste for Thai food I was looking forward to the course and my fiancée was looking forward to my new cooking skills.

The course far exceeded my expectations and the dishes we cooked were amazing, the thai flavours danced on our tongues as the fine balance between sweet, spicy, salty and sour were struck perfectly. We did a range of ‘finger food’ as well as selection of main courses which included the best Pad Thai I have ever had, as well as what has become my family’s favourite desert, a ‘East meets West’ Mango Coconut Meringue pie which is heavenly.

On the day I attended the course there were 5 students in total (all male) and Penny ensured that each and every one of us was taken care of, shown what was needed to do for our dishes and when required all shown as a group. The fact that all the dishes came out perfectly, and I can testify to that as we got to eat them all, is a reflection of the excellent guidance and instruction given by Penny.

At the end of the day/course, Penny provided us with our own recipe books and a small selection of ingredients so we could cook for our friends and family. Since attending the course, I have entertained my family and every dish was a success, in fact I think they enjoyed the food so much they are considering sending me on another course!

I am unable to do justice to Penny and the Culinary Cottage, I would not hesitate in recommending it to anyone wanting to do a cookery course, whatever their level. Penny’s passion for cooking and for sharing the skills and knowledge to cook ensures that the day is fun from start to finish and your appetite is more than satisfied!

A Tasting Time - Morrocan and Thai.  A fantastic cookery course run by Penny at the Culinary Cottage and I have come away with lots recipes that I will be trying again at home.  My favorite dishes included Spiced Tuna Steaks, Saffron & Cardamon Creme Caramel and Asian Chicken Soup.  Penny's cookery courses offer excellent value for money,  always enjoyable and suitable for all levels of cooking experience.  I look forward to returning again and again.........

Thank you Penny for another wonderful day at the Culinary Cottage.

My friends Louise and Julia and I have been to two of Penny's cookery days (so far): Entertaining Made Easy and, just last weekend, Temptingly Thai. We were fortunate enough to have Penny all to ourselves on both occasions, and what a great time we had. Penny is extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and imparts that knowledge and enthusiasm with a smile and great patience! The Thai dishes we prepared were so flavoursome and fresh, and we left not only full of delicious food but also full of ideas and good intentions to buy lots of gorgeous Thai ingredients and have a go ourselves - though how we will fare without Penny's expert guidance remains to be seen ...

I did the Dinner Parties made Stressless course at the Culinary Cottage in September 2011.  The course contained lots of hands on cooking and was both fun and informative.  Penny is a great teacher who takes you through all the techniques calmly and clearly and is on hand to put you back on the right path if you do go wrong.  We cooked loads of delicious dishes and I came out with a raft of new recipes which I've been cooking for my appreciative friends and family since I got home.

I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Penny and the Culinary Cottage.

I was lucky enough to attend one of Penny Lewis’ five day courses in March 2012, it has changed the way I will cook for the rest of my life. What an inspiring course it was. It was not just the cooking but the very helpful handy hints and recipes.

Being there for five days I covered the whole spectrum of dishes and methods, from bread making, dinner parties, healthy nourishing meals, great cakes and wonderful desserts. Penny was able to fit in particular things I wished to try but did not have the confidence to try at home such as souffles and sauces for fish dishes.

My family where amazed and delighted when I arrived home with a wonderful selection of my dishes, they particularly appreciated the Hot Cross buns, which I went on to make many more batches before and after Easter.

I cannot praise Penny enough, she is a wonderful patient teacher, truly inspirational. This course had to be the nearest thing to a religious experience I have ever had. I left the course feeling I could cook anything!

Should you require any further information please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Kindest Regards,
