  • I had a fabulous day cooking with Barbara.
    She was a wonderful guide and expert cookery teacher. I was lucky enough to have lots of hands-on experience although I left her with the washing-up.
    I would thoroughly recommend this tour to experienced or novice cooks as the tips I picked up will be invaluable.
    I am going to make zaleti for my work colleagues when I get home.
