Cookery School

“I realpapadeli bread making classly liked the friendly atmosphere – having nibbles, a glass of wine and a chat while cooking… It felt like being at home, cooking with friends! ….It’s the kind of attention to detail that makes you feel like a welcome guest rather than only a ‘number’ owning a credit card… Don’t know if it makes sense but it does for me and it’s also what made me enjoy the class so much.”
