Thank you once again to you, Ben and the rest of the team for having us. Catching up with them today they really enjoyed the experience and there is a buzz about trying the techniques and recipes out at home. I certainly picked up a few technique tidbits myself!

Thanks so much to your team for yesterday’s pasta making, I’ve had great feedback from everyone who came and I’m sure we will be back again in the not so distant future! Once again a huge thank you for making the session fun and accessible for all the children, it was a pleasure to work with you.

I would like to express my appreciation to you both for planning & hosting such a great ‘Pizza Cooking Experience’ for our visually impaired children. Ben was amazing with the children, he was thorough, gave clear instructions and was very patient with them too…. A very well organised event and a perfect venue.

Your generosity does not go unnoticed…on behalf of the Look Sussex Trustees and of course all our Sussex families too, we cannot thank you enough.

Look Sussex Charity - Visually Impaired Cooking Experience

Brighton Cookery School graciously hosted our Brighton Youth Centre ‘Bake Off’ which was filmed for the annual Youth Film Festival.  Lel and the team were brilliant!  The young people had loads of fun learning how to make a wicked chocolate fondant which was immediately consumed, mostly by me! Thanks BCS for supporting our Brighton young people!

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for today, what an experience for everyone. It’s not easy doing such a lesson/demonstration for any group of children, let alone a group with serious visual impairments, but it was awesome. They all felt so included and were all completely engaged. Wonderful.

A massive thank you and well done for all your efforts in delivering HHH this Term. It’s been a long term and there has been much activity in HHH across the whole of KS3; the girls have learnt a huge deal and this would not have been possible without you!
