"You are all a class act. You've given us a week of a wonderful mix of knowledge, fun & food to remember in a wonderful location. You are generous in imparting tips & technique and giving us confidence to try at home. The company of the other guests has been entertaining (Jonanne) and charming (Lori & Cathy) and we've enjoyed every minute. We wish you all the best of luck for the future and hope we can return again to enjoy your wonderful hospitality."
Leslie & Teelau Payne

"In June 2015 we visited Walnut Grove with friends and what an experience to share and enjoy. It was teriffc fun in every way and we learnt such a lot of new skills.
The accommodation was delightful and Freya was on hand to see to our every whim, from producing delicious breakfasts and lunches, which after a morning in the kitchen were perfect. Then of course we had the evening to look forward with gourmet food that we had helped to produce.
I particularly enjoyed making pasta, which was great fun, and oh how we enjoyed eating it with a superb sauce, plenty of parmesan and a lovely glass of vino, bliss.
I would say to anyone thinking about this experience, do it, you will so enjoy it.
As for myself, I would love to go back, the thought of the Gin and Tonic sorbet again is very exciting.
Thank you everyone at Walnut Grove for such a fabulous experience."
