What People are Saying

“Surprise team building event”

My staff had really put out during a difficult year and I was trying to dream up an experience that they’d all love. Liz conspired with me to surprise my whole staff with a fermenting class & lunch. They thought they were turning up for a stocktaking day but instead had the most wonderful experience of making gut friendly foods from scratch. The smiles, laughter and sheer enjoyment was exactly what I had been aiming for and Liz delivered so much more than I could ever have hoped for. Don’t tell my team but we’ll be back again for a mid year team building even at Cooked From Scratch.

She is an excellent teacher, taking students hands-on and step by step through every process, so they leave confident to repeat the recipe at home

“Absolutely Fabulous”

What a wonderful afternoon was has at Cooked from Scratch cooking school. From the moment I walked in the door I was warmly welcomed by the host and instructor Lizzie who”s passion for cooking was obvious and contagious.
The setting, atmosphere was amazing and the whole experience was amazing and the meal shared at the end was everything I’d hoped it would be. Lizzie was such a warm and friendly host that I felt like I was in an Italian kitchen with Nonna preparing a meal for family & friends. Truly transported to my happy place.
