They all offer an introduction in to the raw ingredients used, then it’s a practical hands-on approach to cook. Final steps then come with showing you how to present the food nicely. When it comes to tasting the dishes you will be proud and marvel at how easy it was and that you could do it. Plus enjoy a feast of your own making!
The cooking schools normally include transfers to and from your resort.
