“Brilliant, packed full of tips and tricks. Garry and Matt were a delight, they were happy to answer the many questions we had. They were patient and helpful. The coffee and food from the cafe at dinner was just gorgeous. We had done a sourdough course with them a couple of years back and that too was great. It was great back then and just as good years later. We've even booked on for another course next year and we can't wait”
