  • Most enjoyed learning about the various techniques for cooking curry - the prospect of putting together a medley of dishes is far less daunting now! Excellent course - friendly tutor with lovely mother - very enjoyable!

  • I really enjoyed the day and learnt not to be scared of experimenting with spices! Manju and her mother made the cooking so easy to follow.

  • May I thank you for a wonderful day and say that the most I took from it was the presentation. The bread with Camembert, the courgettes, the chocolate in the cup. I believe that recipes can always be obtained from a book, but presentation skills cannot, and I will always remember those I have gained from this course.

    Thank you to all those that worked to make this a special day and especially Trish, who was exceptional and made the day unforgettable.

  • Just a short note to thank you all at the Novelli Academy for a great day, I enjoyed the whole experience, loved the cooking with Trish and meeting the man himself.

    I have recommended it to everybody I have spoken to since returning home and am hoping for the same Christmas gift this year!!!

    Samantha Bunn

  • I had a fantastic day and found all the dishes very tasty. It was good to realise I don't need to drizzle in cream (people often make me) to make things taste nice. I'm allergic and yet found everything very enjoyable.
