Ellie has loved it! She enjoys going and when I pick her up it’s like someone has pressed the “reset” button and she’s relaxed, happy, confident. (Please don’t tell her I said this- she’ll be mortified!!)
She said you’re very nice and approachable and I can tell she feels very comfortable around you (mega compliment from my daughter who takes her time “sussing people out”!).
I can tell her confidence has grown in the kitchen and i can tell making/baking things at home is making her think more about food, healthy eating etc. The “downside” is that she notices when I don’t cook fresh/from scratch!
She really enjoys cooking and baking and helping her brothers w baking. I think it’s such a good “therapy” too for teenagers at this day and age. The more time she can spend baking and cooking, the better it is as far as I’m concerned.
It’s a long email but I think you should know how positive this whole cooking experience with toy has been for her and I’m already thinking on how I can keep her in this cooking “atmosphere”!!

Thank you very much for this morning. Tom really enjoyed it. Wendy. Dear Be,
Thank you for the workshop this morning. Jeevan enjoyed it very much. Please can I ask what adult cookery groups you run? Best wishes, Rekha.
Hi Be, They loved it - thanks so much. Gus said there was an accident with his BBQ sauce. I’m so, so sorry Be. (That's what liability insurance is for!!! - It wasn't a problem and all cleared up quickly - Be), Nicketa

Benjamin loved your course and I thought the food was delicious! Thanks very much, very impressed with your work. Cheryl.
A huge thank you for Tuesdays lesson. Felix said it was quite fun, which for him is extremely high praise. He felt comfortable and able to take part which is often not the case, I put that down to a well run but fun class.... Sabine.

Thank you so much for a lovely party yesterday. The kids all had an amazing time.

Thank you so much for such a wonderful Thai workshop today. All of us thoroughly enjoyed it. We were delighted to bring home such a feast and will certainly be cooking all of the dishes ourselves at home in the future. Freddie and Izzie are particularly looking forward to having ice cream for breakfast!
Thanks for the muffin recipe too.

Hi Be, thank you for your kind email, Janine looked amazing and I wept as she entered the church, overcome with joy! The wedding was amazing, and Tony our priest in charge ran everything so well. When we got to the Onslow Arms everyone was truly amazed at how pretty and professional it looked (the 5 tier stacked wedding cake covered in hand-made pink sugar roses) despite the menfolk baking it the day before. We had great fun and many silly speeches before retiring home to dance until the early hours!! :-) We have passed your details to some people who would like to do something similar. Bx

Thank you for a lovely, inspiring morning, and delicious food.
Everyone had a fantastic time, & there is lots of talk about wanting more.
I will be in touch with everyone & some others that were interested, but couldn’t make Friday morning, & then get back to you for some dates.
Have a great weekend

Thank you very much for the great fun I had and skills I learnt.
It has helped me out a lot at home and was possibly one of the best decisions I have made.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for my hen do cooking class on Saturday. I love healthy food and you are a delight to watch and listen to whilst you cook. The food was delicious and I learnt a few really helpful tips plus will be following you on Instagram. It was such fun and a brilliant way to start our night off. Thank you so much!!

Just a note to say a huge thank you for today - it was absolutely brilliant and we all had the most amazing time. It really was everything i'd hoped for and more. Oliver mentioned that he'd sent you a note to say thank you, which is unheard of (!!), and Joshua couldn't stop talking about it all afternoon.
I popped the trays back but your lovely dog was standing guard so they are just inside your gate!
Thanks so much - and until the next time!

Thank you for your email and I just wanted to say how much Jasmine is enjoying the Moving On course! She really enjoys making the recipes at home and they are such that she is able to achieve excellent results whilst working independently. This has boosted Jasmine's confidence in the kitchen tremendously and has also taught her the importance of preparation ( and indeed clearing up afterwards ! ???? )
So a big thanks to you, Be !
I would love to see a copy of the report which you send to DofE if that's at all possible ?
Anyway, Jasmine is very much looking forward to the next session.

Hi there, Thanks for the update. Aimee is thoroughly enjoying the course, as are we..we look fwd to seeing what goodies she brings home eack week! Our favourites so far are the cornish pasty and the coleslaw last night was a definite winner. This is great as Aimee has sometimes been a fussy eater. In fact she had never eaten coleslaw before but is now planning to make it again very soon. She is gaining confidence with her knife skills too and
quite often decides to bake/cook in her spare time at home which is a really lovely way for her to relax inbetween studying for her GCSEs.
She has filled in her evaluation sheets and taken pictures of everything shes done at home, although she does need to print these out.
So..in summary all great! Thanks for everything so far.
