My friend and I attended the vegetarian cooking class recently. We have taken classes together all over the world and this was one of our best experiences. It was very welcoming (even though we arrived early) and it was also very organized. The other participants were lovely to meet and the setting was beautiful. The lunch was delicious and plentiful ( as was the wine) I would recommend the class to anyone.

I found joy in cooking again at Figs on the Fungo. It gave me a push to take up my Ottolenghi cookbooks. Without these workshops, I would never have made tahini and humus myself, which are much tastier than the ones you buy in the shop. Cheryl and Graham make you feel right at home in their cosy kitchen and are the most friendly and flexible persons. It's cooking without stress and meeting new nice people. Lunch together on a lovely terrace with an astonishing view and a heavenly dessert from Laura (their daughter) on top! I am already looking forward to the upcoming Ottolenghi inspired Brunch workshop.
