Waitrose Food Illustrated... "25 of the Best Cookery Courses in Europe" Natasha Goodfellow
"If cooking for more than two brings you out in a cold sweat, look no further than Orchards Cookery”
“In the homely kitchen of a Georgian farmhouse, Isabel and Lucy Bomford demystify the art of effortless entertaining”
“It's an intensive course but, thanks to Lucy's easy style and tried-and-tested recipes stress and mess don't get a look in. And since the setting is domestic - with music on and plenty of chatter - the inevitable successes are easy to replicate at home."
"Excellent instruction from the most knowledgeable and charming instructors. A first class week of fun and entertaining."
"Great course, well run, great value, confidence boosting and really enjoyable. Thank you for making dinner party cooking less intimidating and such good fun."
"I loved it all. Great kitchen, fabulous demonstrations, wonderful recipes and lovely people."
"What a way to learn. You have a winning formula."
"Thank you for a fantastic week. I’ll definitely be back!!"

"What a wonderful week. The food and ideas were fantastic."
"Excellent fun learning how to take the stress out of entertaining - you made a four course meal look effortless and have inspired me to dazzle my friends with all those new skills."
"A great course - fantastic to cover so many dishes, ideas and courses in the one week. So well organised and lots of fun and inspirational cooking ideas."
"I have been meaning to email you for ages but I have been sooooo busy cooking. The family can't believe the renewed energy and enthusiasm I now have for just "whipping" something up. Nothing is too much trouble as it once was before. I would really like to thank you for giving me that gift of now enjoying cooking as well as not just seeing it as a chore. I laugh at the memories I have as I make the various recipes as I recall the effort to just learn to chop and the panic when we forgot to add ingredients at the correct time but then we learned to improvise and then confess all at the mealtime. I haven't laughed as much as I did over that week with all the ladies and the stories everyone had to say. Thank you so much for such a great experience and one that we have all benefitted from... Amazingly I lost 2 pounds in weight on the course (must have been the stress of learning how to chop correctly!)... but have put it all back on and more since I started cooking at home! Many thanks."
