Tell us about your background and reasons for choosing the course

I’ve just finished school and am due to start a Geography Degree in September. I have always loved cooking and wanted to gain better life skills before I head off to University. I thought the course gave a good grounding in all-round culinary skills and would focus on areas I’m not confident at, like meat and fish.

What were your reasons for choosing White Pepper?

I did lots of research online and thought the White Pepper course looked comprehensive and the school had won lots of awards. The course was a good length and the course dates worked out perfectly before I started University. The location was great too, located in the Dorset countryside.

What skills do you feel have developed?

All of my skills have improved and it’s given me a good base for cooking with more confidence.

What have you enjoyed most about the course?

Everything! The location, the teaching style and the amount of new skills I’ve learnt!
