I really enjoyed my course at Stir Crazy, we were a small group so Chef Jodi could give us individual attention. It was fun, generous, informative, creative and delicious. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Absolutely amazing cooking school and experience. Our Chef, Jody was superb. His food knowledge as well as his passion for cooking helped me to excel in making amazing dishes. I have not cooked much fish in the last few years and vein my biggest challenge, I now feel super confident to cook many fish dishes for my clients. I highly recommend this school to anyone who wishes to pursue a career in cooking and cheffing. The entire team from the 2 owners to their assistant are outstanding people. They are warm hearted and very welcoming to their students. Thank you Stir Crazy. You are incredible.

just some quick thoughts, meant to be constructive! i called in advance to let you know i was going to be late on the first day, which i then confirmed later on another call. no one seemed to pass on the message as i was called asking where i was! communications? the introductory talk at the start of each session felt a bit too long? perhaps get the info across during the session and follow up with the notes? the last session for me was the best as i was challenged to create a menu and deliver it, including the plating. it made me achieve something which at the start of the week i don't think i could have delivered, so well done for that! i enjoyed the progress i made across the four sessions and pleased to have done the course! many thanks!!
