Some more nice things that people have said (without bribery) about my courses.

"Great sense of humour - knew exactly when to step in and when to leave you and get on."

- Authentic Italian Course

" I can well appreciate why Peter was made Tutor Of The Year. Calm, organised and so knowledgeable. Can't wait to come back for another couple of days with him for more cooking."

- Moorish and Middle Eastern Course

"This was the first time since school in the 1960s that I have undertaken a cookery course. It was a very satisfying experience and even though I consider myself to be quite a competent cook, I learnt some new skills, techniques and ideas. Thank you."

- French Bistro Course

"Peter is an excellent cookery tutor and has a vast knowledge of world cuisine. He helped us produce beautiful dishes which were not pretentious like some of the Masterchef cooking on TV. A charming man."

- Glamorous Gourmet Course

Here's what Nigel Barden, Head Judge of the British Cookery School Awards said

 “The overall winner of the Best Tutor category had to be a sublime all-rounder. We were looking for an individual that stands out as a top tutor by how they engage with students to get first class results and feedback. The winner also needed to provide evidence of new services, systems and innovations that they have spearheaded, as well as showing why they are simply the best in terms of continually delivering unrivalled service. Being a chef is one thing, being a tutor is another. Our winner is most definitely a rare breed. One who manages to bridge very separate worlds with ease."

and here's a nice piece on what makes a good cookery school by Vivien Lloyd.
