Maker's bio

I have had a passion for cooking all of my life, learning early cooking skills from my Mother and Grandmother. I grew up on my parents farm in Herefordshire, so I’m very much a country boy at heart. In my early teens I turned my love of cooking into a way of earning pocket money, working in restaurants and bistros. I have run my own bistro and restaurant in Suffolk, including outside catering. Although I enjoy the rustic nature of cooking, I have always had a passion for food across the globe and have had the pleasure of working with chefs from many different countries. I incorporate many of these cuisines in my every day home cooking as well as my workshops. Where We Are Our classes are run at our beautiful Suffolk small holding deep in the countryside close to Bury St Edmunds. Come and enjoy our gardens and animals whilst you hone your cooking skills with the many courses we offer. Make it a short break with so much to explore in Suffolk and Norfolk (Nelsons Birthplace) or visit Sutton Hoe to view the Viking Burial Treasure or just spend a day relaxing on North Norfolk’s wonderful sandy beaches

Fiona and Mark reviewed: Spanish and Mexican Tapas

"We had lovely session with Phil covering Spanish and Mexican Tapas. Phil was very kind and engaging. We prepared various dishes and had a lovely lunch overlooking the garden. We would really recommend the course and we hope to come back for the game course in the autumn."

Carol reviewed: Spanish and Mexican Tapas

"Phil has a lovely teaching style and helps along the way as the course members try out the recipes. He clearly has a lot of experience with this style of cookery. The ingredients provided are fresh and good quality and the equipment and kitchen area are modern and well laid out. It was great to try out the various tapas we created along the way and to take some home. Recipe sheets are also provided . All in all a thoroughly enjoyable and good value day which I would recommend. "

Liz Davy reviewed: Spanish and Mexican Tapas

"On this day course I learned how to create delicious, traditional Spanish and Mexican tapas that are easy to make and great for entertaining family and friends. Phil was warm, welcoming and made the course easy to follow, interactive, very informative with lots of great tips and the food was soooo tasty.......we had some for lunch and some we took home. The classes are small and so it is great to attend alone or with someone else. The course included teaching skills and cooking demonstrations by Phil and also hands on workshops in a very modern, well equipped and purpose-built kitchen. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in preparing and cooking great food."
