"Olly had been meticulous in his preparation and he quickly showed us how to cook amazing starters and then main courses using duck, lamb, cod loin, and steak. Each dish had a little "chilli twist" and even the family members with us who did not enjoy chilli in any great quantity or heat range, tucked in and really enjoyed Olly's dishes. Olly's enthusiasm and skill was infectious and he entertained us with his ready sense of humour and amusing anecdotes."

"I certainly learned how to use more chilli in my diet whilst enjoying smoked salmon-pork belly- lamb steak- and sirlion with great vegetable accompanyments. I realised i can eat grilled tomatoes if they have some chilli flakes on top. I would certainly revisit this venue and recommend the tours which i have also done."
